Why Older Pipes Need Careful Attention

While traditional methods of pipe repair are still used today, it has been a service that people normally avoid. Fortunately, the sewer and drain industry has significantly improved over the years by allowing our professional plumbing company to repair your old pipes without hassle.

Older pipes need careful attention because they are made from older materials that are more susceptible to corrosion. More often than not, there are pre-existing problems within your older pipes due to their everyday use. Your sewer and drain system are just like any other standard appliance meaning they do not last forever. Taking the time to service your older pipes is essential and prevents you from dealing with heavy problems in the future.

Types of Pipe Materials

Every Southern California property varies in age, size, and, most importantly, pipe material. When considering repair for your older pipes, you must consider the current pipe material your system is made from. Type of pipe materials includes cast iron, Orangeburg, Terracotta, Galvanized steel, Concrete, Copper, PVC, and HDPE. No matter what types of material your sewer and drain system is made from, we will be able to repair or replace them with speed and efficiency. Our trusted plumber in Covina, CA guarantees this by providing every customer with sewer camera inspections, an industry-standard service that allows us to look into your older pipes via a high-resolution sewer camera. The camera provides us with a real-time view of your pipe’s interior revealing its ages, material, and all imperfections that could be causing you problems. Once all the information is collected, we will repair your old pipes with a solution that best meets your needs.

Trenchless Repair Options for Older Sewer and Drain Systems

At The Drain Doctor, we provide customers with two options for old pipe repair. First, Trenchless Pipe Lining is an innovative and non-invasive service that allows us to create a new pipe within your existing system. The process involves saturating a felt liner with epoxy and moving it through your pipes. As the liner is pushed through your system, it coats the interior walls with epoxy sealing all cracks and leaks. When the liner has moved all the way through, it will be left to harden in place for several hours and removed when complete. Pipe lining is an excellent option because it does not require your pipes to be completely replaced.

However, if the sewer camera inspection reveals that your older pipes are not equipped for repair, we will recommend

Quality Trenchless Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting allows for your pipes to be replaced without excavation. The process involves an entry and an exit point for the bursting head that will be moved through your old pipe, breaking it into pieces, and placing a brand-new pipe where your old one was.
