Repairing, replacing, or fortifying pipes always takes a lot of work and is can come with a hefty price tag. Last year in December, when it was announced that the Calleguas Water District will be reinforcing some of Newhall’s oldest and most worn out pipes in Socal, it was projected that the excavation will last for months and will cost around $1.3 million.
The project was deemed as a necessary and worthy investment because the pipeline in question brings water to more than just the 130,000 people who call Newhall home.
It’s also used to distribute water to around a quarter of Newhall, with a population of 635,000 people. The project, which involved digging out three whole streets, was undertaken in an effort to secure the water supply to the cities down the line from Newhall. The stretch of piping that’s being reinforced was chosen because it’s prone to leaks.
Besides the traffic jams and the possible water outages, while the pipe is being reinforced, homeowners usually don’t have to worry when there are public main line reinforcement projects in the works. At least, not unless something goes terribly wrong.
Homeowners and business owners should worry about their own piping, though. Old, disintegrating pipes can be found in some homes and properties, and not only below Newhall’s streets. With age, the materials that were used to build pipes become weaker, and the more time a pipe spends underground, the more likely it is that a tree root will find its way into it and cause serious damage.
Residential, or sometimes even commercial plumbing works are usually not as expensive as public works. It’s very unlikely that you’ll have to dig out a street to fix your house’s plumbing issues because you’re only responsible for the part of the pipe that’s on your property.
You also wouldn’t have to use as much material to fix your pipe because the residential piping is much smaller than public piping. However, a burst pipe can cause a lot of damage to your home, especially if the pipe bursts while you’re away and you’re not there to take immediate action. So if you factor in the excavation on your property, the parts, and the work needed to repair the pipe, and then taking care of all the damage caused by the water, fixing a burst pipe adds up to a lot of money, and it can be very disruptive.
If you’re experiencing problems with your piping and you don’t want someone to wreck your whole property to get to the part of the pipe that’s causing the trouble, the best thing you can do is use trenchless sewer pipe lining to fix burst or broken pipes.
The trenchless method used by John’s Rooter doesn’t require the plumbers to dig on your property. They will simply clear your pipe of any debris and then install the new lining using the most convenient entry point. So no digging, no ruined landscaping, no disruption. Just one balloon-like contraption and your pipe will be as good as new.
