How Can We Replace or Repair Your Main Line?

  • Full Excavation
Over time, your pipes will deteriorate to the point that you need to replace the entire mainline system. It is often better to replace the whole line when you can as opposed to fixing bits and pieces as you go. Consider the fact that some homes in the San Diego area are more than a hundred years old, there is a good chance that you will have to replace them soon. Full Excavation will require:
  • Locating of all electrical and gas lines
  • Laying plywood to keep the yard in good shape
  • Blocking off the street if necessary
  • Pulling in Tractors to dig for the pipe
  • Brand new pipe
  • City Inspection
  • Putting the location back together
Each project will have a different time span as it is based on the location and needs of the job.
  • Simple Repairs
If your home is not that old and you are experiencing some of the symptoms above, you might only need a simple repair. This means your job requires no heavy digging or removing. A Simple Repair can include:
  • Replacing a Small Section of Pipe
  • Cleaning out your Clog or Blockage
  • Patching a Small Crack in your Sewer Line
