There are a few things that you should know about the process of sewer main installation before you decide to have this type of work done on your property. First, it is important to understand that this type of work generally requires a permit from the city or county in which the property is located. In addition, it is also important to be aware that there may be some disruption to your normal activities while the work is being completed. However, once the work is finished, you will likely find that it was well worth the effort.
If you are planning to have a new home built or if you are renovating your existing home, you will need to have a sewer main installed. The installation of a sewer main is a complex process and it is important to hire a qualified professional to do the job. The first step is to excavate a trench from the street to the property line. This trench will be used to lay the sewer pipe.
Once the trench is dug, the next step is to install the pipe. The type of pipe used for sewer mains is usually made of concrete, PVC, or ductile iron. The pipes are usually laid in sections and then connected together with couplings or fittings.
After the pipe is installed, it needs to be tested to make sure there are no leaks. Once the sewer main passes the test, it will be covered with backfill and compacted. The last step is to install a cleanout so that the sewer main can be accessed in the future if there is a need.
There are a few common issues that can occur with sewer mains that will require repair. One of the most common problems is roots growing into the pipe and causing blockages. Tree roots are attracted to the water and nutrients in the sewer pipe and can quickly grow and cause damage.
Another problem that can occur is breaks or cracks in the pipe. This can happen due to ground movement, freezing temperatures, or simply from age. If you have a break or crack in your sewer main, it is important to have it repaired as soon as possible so that sewage does not leak into your home or yard.
