Sacramento Hydro-Jetting, Pipe Bursting and Lateral Lining

At Express Sewer & Drain, we are always scoping the plumbing industry scene to stay atop of the ever-changing array of tools and methods we can use that will save you time, money and hassle. Doing so is one of the reasons we stay atop the list of Sacramento's favorite plumbers. You are the foundation of your business, so it just makes great sense to always be on the lookout for ways to pass value on to our customers.

Among the tools we frequently use, depending on the situation of course, include our full line of trenchless technologies and hydro-jetting, a fast, easy and environmentally-safe way to blast obstructions from your sewer pipes. Since its inception, it is one of the most ideal ways for cleaning drains.

Have A Blast With Sacramento Hydro-Jetting

What Is Hydro-Jetting?

Hydro-Jetting is a method in which your sewer pipes are scoured by streams of concentrated, high-pressure water blasted out of a hose at up to 3,500 psi.  These high-pressure streams are strong enough to cut through and clear out any debris in your sewer lines, including robust and stubborn roots.

How Does Sacramento Hydro-Jetting Work?

Hydro-Jetting is usually performed through your sewer cleanout, an access built into every plumbing system to allow plumbers to easily "clean out" obstructions.  A Hydro-Jetter is made up of a large tank of water, a specifically-calibrated high-intensity hose, an advanced, durable nozzle and a machine which pressurizes the water.

Your plumbing is engineered to carry waste water downward with the help of good old gravity.  The Hydro-Jetting nozzle is placed at the "downstream" end of the plumbing system.  That way, any clogs that are cleared out by our Express Hydro-Jetter will safely flow into a clear path. 

The Benefits Of Hydro-Jetting In Sacramento

  • Works fast, efficiently and is extremely affordable
  • Able to blast through even the worst clogging obstructions
  • Environmentally safe
  • Can clear sewer pipes for hundreds of feet

Never Dig Up Your Property With Sacramento Lateral Lining

Lateral lining is one of our favorite trenchless methods used to repair or "rehabilitate" old or failing sewer pipes. It's of extraordinary benefit to homeowners, businesses and municipalities alike because:

  • We never have to dig, so it's non-destructive and minimally invasive!
  • It's lightning fast! We can complete sewer repair in hours, not days or weeks!
  • It's environmentally safe - buried toxins or old poison embedded in archaic piping materials remains buried and intact!
  • It's sustainable
  • It's guaranteed to last for over 5 decades!

What Is Sacramento Lateral Lining?

Like hydro-jetting, lateral lining is introduced into any opening available in your sewer, water pipes, or drain line.  At Express, we prefer to use the industry-leading Perma-liner lateral lining technology. It's the best! We apply an epoxy liner into your sewer line until the material coats the inside. Then it rapidly cures underground. Any and all cracks, bellying or breakage are mended during the process, from inside your existing pipe. 

Pipe Bursting In Sacramento

Another one of the advanced technologies we occasionally use here at Express is pipe bursting. This is a method which is typically used for those pipes in the worst shape and unable to be repair via lateral lining. Usually, these sewer pipes are broken in multiple places and are old and/or unsafe.

Like Sacramento lateral lining, pipe bursting is a trenchelss technology. All the work is done underground, so you do not have to worry about us digging up any of your property. The primary difference here is that we use a machine head to enter your pipes via the cleanout and bust up the old pipes. The head also applies a new line as it moves through the ground.

Again, you never have to dig when it come to pipe bursting in Sacramento.
