Pipe Lining & Repiping
A failure of your sewer line will require immediate repair or replacement. Some signs of a problem include leaks, corrosion or rust, bad smell, slab leaks, pinhole leaks, low water pressure, moving the water meter when water is off, water stains, mold, or bursting of pipes.
If you are still determining whether your home is a good candidate for pipelining or if a complete re-piping is the best solution, our expert plumbing professionals will assess your situation and provide you with options.

Types of Re-Pipe & Pipelining Services
Homeowners in San Diego and Long Beach have a few options when it comes to repairing a failing or broken sewer line. The right choice for your residence will depend on a few factors. These factors include the age of your existing pipes, damage extent, and budget.
At Daniel’s Plumbing & Son, we can handle all types of re-piping and pipelining services, including:
- Polybutylene Pipe Repair & Replacement: Polybutylene pipe is a gray plastic water supply line pipe developed in the 1970s. Believe it or not, it was touted as the pipe of the future because it cost less than copper and is easier to install. Unfortunately, any home plumbed with polybutylene is like a ticking time bomb. It’s a matter of time before it springs a leak.
- Trenchless Sewer Replacement Professionals: If you’ve had a sewer or drain back-up, the chances are it’s not the first time and probably won’t be the last time. Multiple back-ups typically mean your sewage system is failing. At Daniel’s Plumbing & Son, we are available 24/7 for homeowners in San Diego and Long Beach to inspect your system to identify what is causing the issue and determine whether it will be a recurring problem. Whether it’s deterioration due to old age or roots trying to find water, we’ll be able to find the problem and present you with your different options. Our expertise with trenchless sewer replacement means minor to no digging in your yard. The process is more cost-effective than the traditional methods.
- Trenchless Sewer & Drain Lining: In the simplest terms, a trenchless sewer lining is the process of creating a brand-new pipe inside of the existing host pipe. Next, a resin-saturated felt tube made of polyester is pulled or inserted into a damaged pipe. Minor to no digging is involved in this trenchless drain-lining process. This method is more environmentally friendly than traditional “Dig & Replace” sewer and drain pipe repair methods. Furthermore, the trenchless sewer and drain rehabilitation methods are generally more cost-effective than conventional exhume and replace methods. Many Long Beach and San Diego homeowners are looking to trenchless sewers as an alternative to traditional pipe repairs.
Why Polybutylene Pipes Fail
Oxidants such as chlorine in a public water supply react with polybutylene piping and acetal fittings. This reaction causes them to scale, flake, and become brittle. This deterioration results in micro-fractures and reduces the fundamental structural integrity of the system. As a result, the system becomes weak. As a result, it may fail without warning, possibly causing damage to the building structure and personal property. Furthermore, improper installation is a common cause of polybutylene system failure, which can be almost impossible to detect.
