Tunneling and Sewer Repair

Tunneling and Sewer Repair in San Antonio

Tunnel repair is a tricky process that involves digging under a residential or commercial building to remove, repair, or replace plumbing pipes that are no longer serviceable. Done wrong, it can be dangerous, even hazardous when sewer lines are compromised. Alamo Plumbing Solutions offers top-notch plumbing services for tunneling and sewer repair in San Antonio, so customers can rest easy knowing that all their plumbing needs are well taken care of.

Alamo Plumbing Solutions’ experienced plumbers get the job done correctly using well-rounded knowledge, skills, and tools. Not only are they professionals who complete the job without risking the safety of both the plumbing personnel working on the project and the property, but they also provide quality services at a reasonable price while utilizing state-of-the-art plumbing technology.

Pipe Repair Diagnosis

During the diagnostic step of pipe repair, plumbing professionals begin by first asking a set of questions to identify the problem. Once this is done, a physical inspection is done using diagnostic plumbing techniques – this involves a few tests including hydrostatic testing, also known as static testing to check for any leakage.

Hydrostatic testing involves the insertion of an inflatable ball into a property’s mainline sewer cleanout. The ball is inflated to plug the sewer line, then the sewer system is filled with water up to the edge of the building’s slab foundation. The water level will be observed for about 15 minutes – during this time, if the water level starts to drop or it does not fill up to the level of the building’s slab foundation, that’s a sign that a leak is present in the plumbing system.

Digging under your property to repair your sewer lines is a risky and invasive process. Tunnel repair under your property is never fun and can be dangerous and when you do it to repair sewer lines, it can be hazardous. That is why it is important to hire Alamo Plumbing Solutions in San Antonio.

Sewer Repair Through Tunneling

As the sewer line is the main connection between a building and the city’s sewer system, tunneling to repair sewer lines is often an invasive and involved process. The process starts by digging under the slab foundation to remove any old pipes, then opening the floor to the ceiling to provide access for the new pipe, then connecting the new pipe to the main water pipe and the water meter. During the tunneling process, proper ventilation and loose soil control must be done to prevent the occurrence of compromised air quality and soil stability.

Hiring plumbing professionals to get the job done is the best bet, as they have industry experience that allows them to complete complex repairs with safety in mind. Putting plumbing processes like tunnel repair and pipe replacement in the capable hands of Alamo Plumbing Solutions’ plumbers saves time, money, and energy – with Alamo Plumbing Solutions, customers know the problem will be solved as efficiently and painlessly as possible.

Underground Pipe Replacement

When a sewer line is ruptured, it can often lead to a lot of damage. The pipe may have started leaking, or the entire sewer line may have collapsed. A broken sewer line can result in sewage backing up into your home or business, which can lead to an extremely dangerous situation.

During a heavy rainstorm, a sudden gush of water in a pipe can cause flooding. In a situation like this, the best way to solve the problem is to replace the damaged section of the pipe. During most of our service calls, we see the most common sewer repair is caused by the deterioration of the pipelines.
