Pull-in-Place Epoxy Lateral Line Rehabilitation Spotlight

Bill Howe Plumbing began with a very simple business model: offer the highest quality of customer service in sewer and drain cleaning in San Diego at the most affordable price. After 35 years, we feel it is safe to say that we have mastered drain cleaning, and over the past decade, drain lining in San Diego.

Bill Howe Plumbing has created an expert lining division within the company. Technicians have a combined (years) experience in residential and commercial applications. Recent projects include Navy work and a regular schedule of residential homes.

Epoxy sewer lining in San Diego can repair damaged lines eliminating the need for continual maintenance and costly drain snaking. Most causes for sever sewer line damage comes in the form of root intrusion and simple age of pipes. But, the epoxy process can repair virtually any type of damaged line, as well as most types of pipe, including cast iron, clay, and ABS as well as vertical and lateral applications.

Case Example: Commercial Property Lateral Line Rehabilitation.

Problem: Concrete build-up in 240 ft of Cast Iron line causing monthly backups.

Solution: Mechanical and high powered jetting to de-scale over 500 ft in preparation of epoxy coating on 140 ft of lateral line.

The two person Bill Howe Lining team spent 12 nights de-scaling over 500 ft of the 4-inch line (diameter reduced to approximately 1-inch from concrete in line). The biggest challenge was to keep services available for the commercial building during the two week process. Once the line was cleaned, the team ran a camera inspection and discovered cracks and holes in spanning approximately 142 ft.

Pull-in-place epoxy lining was utilized to rehabilitate the lines, creating a “pipe within a pipe” restoring the damaged sections to a condition as if the line were just installed.

Engineering at the commercial property received constant communication and updates, and in the end had this to say: “While we have come to expect professionalism and quality work from Bill Howe, your crew, specifically Mike and Jim (the crew lining in San Diego) have reset the bar again.”

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.
