Trenchless sewer pipe repair Woodland Hills - A call came in where two customers or residents both shared the same sewer pipe line. This does happen from time to time however, it is rare and requires both owners to be on the same page. When calls like this one comes in it is important to fully document all communications between all parties, also it is important to determine who is the one in charge and who is responsible for payment before any work begins. The upside to a shared project like this one is the cost to repair and fix the problems is split between two neighbors. In this case it was determined the line need to be inspected to see what exactly is going on and why does one house receive more raw sewage backup issues than the other home. The contractor who took the call agreed to go out and investigate the ongoing sewer problem.

Woodland Hills, CA Trenchless Sewer Pipe Repair

Once the contractor arrived for the inspection appointment for the Woodland Hills sewer pipe he ran the sewer video camera down the disputed pipe lines to get a better idea of what is happening. It was determined both Woodland Hills neighbors did in fact share the same cast iron line going out to the city sewer, however there was a blockage where the neighbor who is the experiencing backups, connected to the main drain line. The blockage consisted of a tree root ball and it was a very large blocking approx 75% of the neighbors tie-in. Also, to compound matters just before you get to the city sewer there is approx 10 feet of clay pipe. So this situation needed to be dealt with on the neighbor side and the city side as well. The solution provided by the TSR Trenchless technician was to offer a trenchless sewer pipe burst on from the damage tie-in to the city Woodland Hills sewer, also bursting out the old clay line, all told the total length of the pipe bursting would be approx 65 feet.
