Epoxy Drain Re-lining Preserves Underground Sewer at Historic Site in San Diego

Imagine being able to restore a damaged drain line under your house or in your yard without any destruction. Our lining system creates a new pipe inside of the old pipe. Now we can make a permanent repair for root intrusions, calcification and pipe offsets from earth movements, without the destruction from digging up your house or precious landscaping.

Project Site: Historical home in La Jolla, California. The residence was converted to an event location and holds weddings, holiday parties, and private events year-round.


Project: Clean and line 89’ of 4” cast iron and clay pipe using a cured in place structural liner.

Problem: The property had been having frequent back-ups causing problems with events and costing money and time on maintenance and the need for routine plumber in San Diego. Bill Howe Lining inspected the property and pipe with a sewer camera and discovered an off-set line and excessive root intrusion underneath the driveway and courtyard area. A traditional dig up and  replacement was not an option due to expense and the amount of time and disruption which would cause the private event location to be down.

Bill Howe Lining Solution: First, the San Diego drain relining crew used exclusive mechanical cleaning tools to clean the line of all roots and scale buildup. The team performed a second camera inspection to ensure the line was in prime condition for the structural lining application. Bill Howe lining used CiPP (Cured Pull in Place) Permaliner epoxy solution to reline 89’ of 4” cast iron and clay pipe  eliminating the need for a costly and destructive repair.

The epoxy drain relining team in San Diego started at the double-sweep cleanouts and was able to complete the full cleaning, relining, and final camera inspection over two days with minimal water shut down allowing the customer to continue business as usual.

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
