OXNARD TRENCHLESS SEWER REPAIR
You may not think of it but the sewers under your feet are why Oxnard looks the way it does. Over 400 miles of piping have been built to keep the ocean clean, streets hygienic, and ensure housing values stay high.
Private residences and businesses are connected to the main sewer line and everyone’s waste ends up in the municipal wastewater treatment plant. The main sewer line doesn’t only funnel wastewater but storm water as well, making them instrumental in preventing flooding during periods of heavy rains.
How to keep pipes and sewer lines in working condition
Because everyone connects to the city’s sewer lines, it is in the public’s best interest to take care of the infrastructure. Repairing and maintaining private plumbing is a public responsibility that helps keep Oxnard a safe and clean place to live.
Guard your investment
If civic duty is not motivation, remember that the health of your sewer lines directly affects your own property values. Your property in Oxnard is a healthy investment and backed up sewer lines can destroy buildings. A sewer flood or a backed up toilet can turn into a situation that quickly escalates out of control.
Local sewer laws for private property owners
The Private sewer lateral law states that before a home is sold, the lateral sewer must be inspected for failures and if they exist, must be repaired.
A private sewer lateral is the pipe that connects a private home’s internal plumbing with the public sewer. So named because it runs lateral, to the side, of the property, connecting under the street with the city sewer. The lateral pipe is important but is sometimes forgotten because of its relatively hidden proximity.
The city of Oxnard can also issue a written notice mandating an inspection of the private sewer lateral if there is reasonable cause, such as a sewer backup. A broken sewer pipe is more than just a nuisance, it is a public health hazard. This law is enforced strictly and it is imperative all homeowners understand which steps must be undertaken when selling property in Oxnard.
Trenchless Sewer Repair
Actually fixing and replacing the sewer pipe can be very expensive expensive and incredibly time intensive. The process most people imagine when realizing their pipes need to be fixed is one where excavators sit on the property, and multiple laborers dig up the lawn, even jackhammering the basement.
With Trenchless Sewer Repair, this is no longer the case. No digging or excavating is required, your old pipes stay in place. The process involves sealing the interior of pipes with a new age epoxy, effectively replacing the old ones while retaining their outer wall. An epoxy saturated liner is inserted and pulled through the pipe, sealing the entire circumference with a non-permeable layer.
Trenchless sewer repair is cost effective and can be done in a relatively quick window of time. Call Roto-Rooter in Ventura today and ask about Trenchless Sewer Repair. 805-620-3700.
