Any commercial sewer line repair job requires the expertise of highly skilled sewer repair contractors. Sewer-related problems at your business must be handled with care and consideration because there’s too much at risk. We know that our commercial customers need to run their businesses without too much disturbance, which is why our repair process is done with this in mind.

In this post, we discuss how we make repairs to damaged commercial sewer pipes and what you need to know to make the process go smoothly.

Diagnosing the Problem

Commercial sewer problems can be complex and take time to figure out. It’s important that sewer contractors in Anaheim take the time to diagnose the problem thoroughly because you don’t want repairs to drag on for days or weeks. You also don’t want the sewer line problem misdiagnosed.

To diagnose problems accurately, we use video equipment to see inside the sewer system. Unlike residential pipes, which are small in diameter, commercial pipes can be as wide as 26 inches or more. To find the smallest cracks, we need to use CCTV camera equipment. This camera inspection equipment differs from residential sewer cameras because it casts more light in larger spaces and makes it easier for our contractors to see inside bigger pipes.

During the inspection, we look for the location of the problem and the cause. This information tells us whether we should recommend repair or replacement. No one wants to deal with a sewer line replacement, but sometimes it’s the better option because you want to nip the problem in the bud right away. You don’t want to deal with the same problem one, two or 10 years down the line.

Marking Utility Lines

Before work begins, we must mark utility line locations. This is important whether it’s a trenchless sewer repair or a traditional dig-and-replace job. Performing any work on underground pipes is dangerous when we don’t know the location of utility lines.

Inspections and Permits

Even the simplest sewer repair jobs require permits and inspections from the city. These requirements are in place to ensure that all jobs get completed according to code and don’t present safety hazards to the public. Rest assured that our team of professionals is always working behind the scenes to make sure your completed sewer job meets all city requirements.

Preparing Your Business for the Work

As professionals, we do our best to prepare our customers for any disruption that comes from a sewer line repair. Our city-bonded contractors will secure the area and manage traffic flow concerns, but some inconvenience is unavoidable.

Since we’re working on the sewer line, your building won’t have access to water and bathroom facilities during the repair. If the sewer repair involves digging under sidewalks or parking areas, companies may need to make plans for how their employees and customers get in and out of the building.

Some businesses can work around these inconveniences, but others may find that it’s easier to shut down while we make the repairs. Know that our contractors will use the quickest repair methods possible to get out of your way as quickly as possible.

The Clean Up Process

Sewer jobs get messy. Even those that don’t require a lot of excavation, such as trenchless repairs, leave behind a little mess. Before we finish a job, we backfill any holes and clean up the areas, removing all debris from the construction site. If the sewer repair disturbed any concrete or paved areas, know that our street work team will restore these areas to their original condition.
