About Us

Pipe Spy has set the standard for sewer lateral replacement since 1998. We work to remain the best, to set new standards, and to perform at our best for our customers.

Our Qualifications

Pipe Spy has the expertise, depth of experience and knowledge of local sewer compliance that you require. We want to be the sewer repair company you’ll recommend to your friends and neighbors.

We’ve been using trenchless technology for sewer replacement since it was first available to the Bay Area – in fact, Pipe Spy was the first plumbing company to use it here. Pipe Spy is a licensed California Contractor for both General Plumbing (Class C36) and General Engineering (Class A), which enables us to provide the best Engineered Plumbing Solutions for your sewer pipeline.
Pipe Spy is a recipient of the Chrysalis Award for Remodeling Excellence, and is a preferred sewer contractor for the Cities of Oakland and Berkeley.

Our Certifications

“Certification” means nothing if it’s not put into practice. We educate our staff to excel, we pass on our knowledge, and we seek new ways to improve for our customers.

Pipe Spy sewer technicians are trained to use the most current standards and best practices. The certifications we’ve received provide you with best-in-industry team members. We regularly train our staff to ensure we provide you with excellent customer service and technical expertise. Most recently, Pipe Spy completed training via the “Pipeline Assessment Certification Program” from NASSCO. We seek new ways to excel every day, to improve our knowledge and service skills, and to increase the value for service our customers receive.

Our History

We’ve been the experts from the beginning, and aim to be the best private sewer replacement service company far into in the future. You can count on Pipe Spy for years to come.

Paul Cooper and Heiko Dzierzon formed Pipe Spy Inc. in 1998 to serve the SF East Bay’s growing need for sewer repair and replacement. We sought better value for our customers, and so we brought trenchless sewer replacement technology to the East Bay.  We advocated for our customers by working with the local utility inspectors to gain approval for the new technology. Along the way, we’ve doubled our company size, enjoyed long-term relationships with our team members, and have been a part of a sustainable transformation of the local water utility infrastructure. We are proud of these accomplishments, and welcome what the future brings.
