Trench-Less Sewer Line Repair in East Hollywood, CA
In our recent project, we successfully tackled a challenging task: fixing a 60-foot long section of the main sewer line made of clay, which ran beneath a driveway. The pipe had issues like breaks, shifts, and roots growing into it. Our solution was a trenchless pipe repair, known as pipe bursting.
To start, we had to create two 4×4 foot access points. The first one was right under the asphalt of the driveway. We used saws and jackhammers to cut through the asphalt and then dug 3 1/2 feet down to reach the pipe. The second point was in the front yard, near the main gate and the property line. This one was deeper, about 6 feet.
Safety was a top priority, so we brought all the necessary safety equipment to the site. Once we prepared the holes, we used a special hydraulic machine for the pipe bursting process. This machine pulled a new pipe into place, replacing the old one without the need to dig up the entire sewer line under the driveway.
We used high-quality ABS plastic pipes and RC shielded bands for the connections, as required by city regulations. To ensure everything was working perfectly, we ran water through the new system to check for leaks. After confirming there were no issues, we filled the holes back in and compacted the soil for stability. Where we had removed asphalt, we replaced it with concrete.
The entire project, from start to finish, took us 4 to 5 days. We’re proud to offer a 25-year warranty on this repair. Plus, the customer benefited from a 20% discount on the original price. This project not only solved the immediate problem but also ensured long-lasting, reliable sewer service for the property.
