How We Help With Trenchless Sewer Repair in San Antonio
Cost-Effective, No-Dig Plumbing Solutions for Homes and Businesses
If you own a house or commercial building in San Antonio that was constructed in the 60s and 70s, there’s a good chance that you have a galvanized or cast iron sewer system.
The construction process of the time favored metal pipes for sewer systems because they are durable and can last for decades. However, as with most metals, they are also prone to corrosion, which hastens their wear and tear.
So before you relocate or buy a property built decades ago, inquire about the sewer system. If it is galvanized steel or cast iron and has been untouched all these years, now would be the best time to have it inspected by professional plumbers.
Accurate Leak and Line is the best company to call for sewer line inspections. We are known for our reliable and precise assessments of sanitary sewer systems. Moreover, we can inspect sub-slab sewers (pipes below a building’s concrete foundation) with zero cosmetic damage to your property.
Finally, we specialize in trenchless sewer repair in San Antonio. Whether your sewer needs spot repairs or a brand-new, rerouted pipe system, our master plumbers can do the job. We use non-invasive technology to fix damaged pipes internally. However, should excavation become necessary, you can trust our experienced crew to perform conventional sewer repair.
Our San Antonio Trenchless Sewer Repair Services
Complete Plumbing Solutions for Sub-Slab Pipe Systems
We are the leader in trenchless sewer repair in San Antonio and are known for our no-dig approach to diagnostics, pipe repair, and replacement. We use Nu-Flow technology, particularly for trenchless pipelining installations – a process that uses epoxy-soaked felt liners to create a seamless lining inside damaged cracks. This technique effectively seals leaks without having to replace the sewer pipe itself. Trenchless pipelining is ideal for spot repairs and can be administered for sub-slab sewers.
Trenchless Epoxy Coating
Accurate Line and Leak offers blown-in epoxy coating, a viable alternative to Nu-Flow trenchless pipelining. It is also non-invasive and doesn’t require digging. But before we coat the pipe with epoxy, we clean and descale it first. Doing so ensures that the epoxy can flow smoothly and stick to the inner wall. Once the epoxy hardens, the new lining effectively serves as a brand-new, pipe-within-a-pipe installation. This technique is ideal for sewers with extensive corrosion or multiple leaks in a single pipe.
Sub-Slab Leak Detection and Repair
Sewer lines in homes and commercial buildings are typically built beneath the foundation, making it hard to repair all the more to replace damaged sewer pipes. Fortunately, we can pinpoint and fix sub-slab leaks without causing any destruction to your home or building. Accurate Leak and Line has several tools and equipment for trenchless diagnostic tests that will aid us in locating sub-slab sewer leaks. We can also use Nu-Flow trenchless epoxy coating to seal leaks and give existing pipes a new lease on life.
There may be times when we may have to do some digging if it means long-term benefits for our clients. But even when doing conventional repairs, we keep the damage to your property to a minimum. This means limiting the excavations to the soil around your house or building and avoiding breaking the walls or foundation. We do this by tunneling from outside the structure and digging under the foundation to reach the sewer line beneath it. Then, our plumbers will reroute the sewer to a newly-installed pipeline outside the house. Through exterior rerouting, your property’s structural integrity stays intact, and you get a brand-new sewer system.
In-Line Video Inspection
Video inspection is a must for trenchless sewer repair. We will need to see the condition of your sewer and, more importantly, pinpoint the cracks, defects, and obstructions we need to fix. Accurate Leak and Line uses infrared in-line video cameras to get a visual inside inaccessible sewer pipes. Our cameras have a transmitter, which feeds footage on a portable screen. We push the camera as deeply as it can reach, taking note of the distance from the surface each time we spot a problem. This is how we identify and locate the causes of sewer leaks without digging trenches all over your property.
Hydrostatic Pressure and Static Leak Isolation Testing
If you think your sewer has a leak, we can verify it by conducting hydrostatic pressure or static leak isolation testing. Hydrostatic pressure testing isolates sections of a sewer system and fills it up with water. We then observe the water level through a drain: if it doesn’t fill with water or the water line sinks after a while, then that section of the sewer likely leaks. Static leak testing uses the same process, except it involves video cameras (essentially a combination of video inspection and hydrostatic pressure testing). We recommend this test for sub-slab leak detection.
