Have you noticed foul smells coming from your property you just can't place, or are you aware your sewer line may have been damaged?

At HPS Plumbing Services, we use a method called San Diego trenchless sewer replacement, where we can complete the process without causing a huge mess.

How Does Trenchless Sewer Replacement Work?
We cannot overstate the value of choosing San Diego trenchless sewer replacement over the outdated method of sewer line replacement. If you have ever experienced or witnessed a sewer line being restored, you know the hassle involved. Thankfully, with this new technique, we are able to access your old line and place the new line without destroying your property. Our San Diego residential plumbers use trenchless technology to ensure all sewer line problems are resolved quickly and conveniently.
If our San Diego residential plumbing team deem that full pipe replacement is necessary, we start by routing and shattering the old pipe. The old pipe is then moved outward so the new pipe can be pulled into the same space, almost like a "sleeve." We understand what an arduous task this can be, which is why we try to make the process as painless as possible. We offer financing options and special deals to ensure you can get the services you need without exceeding your budget.
How Long Do Sewer Pipes Last?
Sewer pipes can last a long time. The actual lifespan is dependent on the piping material the sewer line is made of. PVC pipes can last well over 100 years long. Cast iron pipes can last 75-100 years, and clay or cement pipes can last upwards of 100 years before needing a complete replacement. To ensure sewer pipes last this long it's important to have them maintained and cleaned every two years.
