Epoxy Lining Solution Saves Business Complex


Large office parks have a unique challenge when back ups occur in the main sewer lines. If the line is determined to be full of scale buildup, roots, or has cracks or other compromised sections, it could be difficult to repair if that compromise is 200 feet into the line, under a parking lot (or structure), or in the middle of a business. Epoxy re-lining is an excellent solution for these applications to minimize damage, down time, and can be significantly less expensive than traditional dig ups.  .

Project Site: Business Park in La Jolla, Ca.

Project: Clean 460’ of 4” cast iron line with mechanical tools and line 240’ of 4” cast iron using cured-in-place Permaliner epoxy solution.

Problem: Continual backups affecting multiple offices in the three story commercial building.

Bill Howe Lining Solution: The San Diego drain re-lining team inspected the main drain line with  the sewer camera and found heavy scale buildup and deterioration in the main sewer line. The drain relining team used exclusive mechanical cleaning tools to remove major scale buildup through 460 feet of the 4” cast iron line to prepare it for the epoxy liner. Due to the good condition of much of the sewer line, the epoxy relining team was able to line only the affected sections saving money. The lining team performed all work after hours and lined lateral sections on the North and South side of the building.

Building Engineer’s Testimonial:

“While we have come to expect professionalism and quality work from Bill Howe, your crew, specifically Mike and Jim have reset the bar again.

Seldom do we have the opportunity to work with individuals that require little to no supervision/quality control.  Mike and Jim knew exactly what work needed to be completed, how to effectively coordinate the work and consistently communicated to us how things were going, what was next and what the overall schedule would be, all the while allowing our customers to maintain their operations without being affected or inconvenienced in any way.”

If you find yourself faced with frequent back ups affecting your business, you may benefit from an evaluation form the experts at Bill Howe. Call  1-800-Bill Howe (245-5469) today.

What Joel C says about us

Very Satisfied. Michael is always on time, Michael has been doing all of the plumbing related to our remodel. He always does exactly what he commits to do within the estimated cost. He keeps me informed if any wrinkles pop up, and his plumbing skills are excellent as we have had no problems or issues arise after he has left. Very professional! Highly recommend.

What Rick M says about us

We had other companies come out for estimates on what was considered a major job with jackhammers and replacing cast iron pipes under the house… having been stung before, we wanted another estimate just to make sure we were making an informed decision. The prior estimates went up to $21,000!
Bill Howe sent us an amazing veteran plumber, Dashawn and his co- worker Anthony. Dashawn did a thorough check of the problem, explained what he thought was needed … he did a final check and we were able to see for ourselves what was the problem. He recommended a complete cleaning to de-scale the pipes, and not the major work we dreaded. Thanks to his solid analysis and patience in making sure we saw what he saw, the issue was resolved completely, and saved us thousands of unnecessary work. None of the other estimates included the cleaning; only the major repairs. Thanks to Dashawn’s knowledge, professionalism and honesty, we’re Bill Howe customers.

What Carolyn Housman says about us

This was our second excellent experience with Bill Howe. We had a blocked kitchen sink drain 8/5. I was able to get a same day appointment which is AMAZING. Person on phone was very courteous and set me up right away. Tony arrived at the house (called me 30 minutes out so I was able to be ready). He diagnosed the issue (blocked drain, not the garbage compactor) and was able to snake it and ran the water for 10 minutes to be sure the drains were clear. He cleaned up everything and you would not have known he was even there. Thank-you Tony and Bill Howe, you always know how.

What Ed Gohlich says about us

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.
