SAN JOSE CA Pipe Lining and Rehabilitation Service For Broken Pipes | Sewer Lateral Pipe Relining Stops Roots| Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) No Digging
PIPE LINING: Are you sewer pipes backing up from root infestation, or from missing pipe floors or broken sewer pipes? Are your apartment roof rain-drains leaking into walls of condominiums? Modern pipe replacement installs a new pipe inside of the old pipe. It only takes 3 hours, has a 50 year warranty and is as strong as repiping with new pipe. We only need one entry point to install the new pipe liner, usually from a rooftop or a small access hole dug outside the building. Compared to old-fashioned excavation, itâ€™s cheaper, faster and cleaner. Click Pipe Lining to learn more.
EPOXY PIPE LINING: All throughout San Jose pinhole leaks in copper pipes create slab leaks and leaking galvanized pipes cause water damage and lead leaching into drinking water. Epoxy pipe rehabilitation coats the inside of potable water pipes with EPA approved food-grade epoxy which permanently seals all leaks. It is widely used in hospitals, hotels, home, factories, aircraft carriers, oil pipelines and apartment high-rises. Click Epoxy Pipe Lining to learn more.
PIPE BURSTING & SLIP LINING: In some circumstances, pipes cannot be lined. Sometimes pipe bursting is used, which involves the physical destruction and outward displacement of the old pipe followed simultaneously by the installation of a new pipe with the same or wider diameter inside the newly created void. In other cases, a new pipe can simply be pulled into the old pipe, thereby reducing the internal diameter somewhat.Â Click Pipe Bursting / Slip Lining to learn more.
MANHOLE REHABILITATION: Are you experiencing water infiltration or sewer exfiltration? Are your San Antonio sewer manholes disintegrating? We offer both physical manhole rehabilitation with fiberglass linings as well as epoxy and polymeric manhole rehabilitation. Click Manhole Rehab to learn more.
Modern pipe replacement underground or in walls no longer requires excavation to repipe. Trenchless pipelining contractors all around California have been rehabilitating pipes for over a decade without digging and disruption of landscaping and buildings.
The process is actually quite simple: a new pipe liner is installed inside the broken pipe that is leaking or has root growth causing blocked drains. The new inner-pipe is initially a flexible fiberglass felt tube that is wet thoroughly with a self-hardening epoxy resin that cures within 3 hours. Thatâ€™s right; the new pipe is formed inside the old pipe within 3 hours. The new inner pipe is as thick and strong as regular PVC which is usually used to repipe cracked and leaking sewer pipes or roof drains. The new pipe liner has a 50 year warranty, and engineering tests have given the new inner pipe a 100-year life expectancy.
So it is no longer necessary to excavate through sidewalks, driveways, apartment walls and floors or landscaping to repair plumbing pipes. The pipe lining process is fast, clean and costs less than digging up pipes. Also, the new cured-in-place (CIPP) pipe has no joints or seams like regular plumbing pipes, so there is no possibility for water leaks into or out of the new pipe. Of course, root infestation can no longer occur either, so CIPP permanently solves root intrusion.
Trenchless pipelining can be installed on any pipes: potable water, steel pipe, sewage pipes, HVAC pipes needing repair, hotel roof drains, apartment floor drains, orangeburg pipes, clay (VCP) pipes and even wooden sewer pipes (upstate New York).
The Trenchless CIPP Pipe Installation Process
- The pipe lining contractor uses a water jetter or mechanical pipe cleaning brushes, remove all scale and corrosion deposits causing drain pipe backups
- Then the pipe lining company uses a video camera to inspect the sewer plumbing pipes and gets a distance measurement for the trenchless pipelining
- The pipe liner is cut to length and 100% epoxy resin is mixed and used to saturate the pipe sleeve thoroughly
- The new liner is installed and alloed to harden under air pressure against the walls of the broken leaking pipe
- After 3 hours the new pipe liner has formed a new pipe inside the old pipe and the process is complete

Recent Project in San Jose CA: Swimming Pool Pipe Lining In Santa Clara, CA
We got a call late from a pool owner that had a pool leak detection determine a 6â€ť pool main drain pipe was leaking somewhere along itsâ€™ length. The pipe was underneath the 8â€ť thick concrete shell of the pool that was leaking and excavation to replace pipe would have destroyed the expensive Diamond Brite quartz finish. The new pool surface would never match the old pool surface. Also, the pool was 9â€™ deep and there were concerns that emptying the pool could cause a high water table to â€śpopâ€ť the pool out of the ground.
Pipe video inspection showed 5 ninety-degree bends in the pipe and other â€śpull-in-placeâ€ť pipe lining companies had failed to get the pipe liner around all the hard 90s. The air-inversion method that we use which is manufactured by Perma-Liner was the logical choice for the job as it only required one access point for the pipe relining.
After installing a hydrostatic pump in the hydrostatic plug of the pool, the ground water was pumped out for 24 hours, and then the pool was emptied and the main drain cover removed. Then a video inspection of the leaking pool pipe was made to determine what length of pipe linier was need for pipe relining. The first pipe lining problem was that another pool main drain line connected to the pipe being relined and would be covered up by the relining process. Pool building code requires two main drains connected to a single suction line to prevent accidents such as evisceration.
Fortunately Craftsman Pipe Lining (also a swimming pool contractor) exclusively offers a â€śmulti-sectional tear away processâ€ť that uses air inversion to line the pipe from one access hole, but can start the pipe liner after the pipe connection and can skip future ones so they are not covered up. Then the pipe liner was installed from the main drain all the way to the pool pump, stopping 6â€ť short of the pump basket. After a 3-hour cure time, the pipe liner was cured and a hydrostatic pressure test using a vertical water-filled stand pipe at the pool equipment showed no remaining leaks. The whole pipe line repair took two days as opposed an estimated 14 days for pipe excavation and pool resurfacing.

Advantages of CIPP (Cured-In-Place-Place) Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation
- Speed: cured in place pipe lining takes hours not weeks
- Cost: since no walls, basements, floors, driveways and landscaping is destroyed, trenchless pipe repair is cheaper than digging and replacing pipe
- Cleanliness: No pipe repair excavation mess inside apartments, factories, hospitals and commercial buildings
- No downtime costs: restaurant pipe rehab and CIPP in other commercial facilities allows the continued operation and no economic loss
