A BIG THANKS goes out to Heidi and Sue at the Third Way Center for having the confidence in us to repair a broken sewer.
A 7' deep outside sewer cleanout had been installed sometime in the past without a permit, using less than code required fittings and connectors. It failed, allowing gravel to get into the pipe.
We were able to excavate the section, remove all of the old repair, and finish with modern code required pipe and fittings. We also added two way directional cleanouts to make any future cleanings easier and much more effective.
Remember, when you have to repair your sewer, get a licensed sewer professional with city permits and inspections. That way you can be sure it's done right the first time, saving the cost and hassles of doing it over when it fails.
The first two photos are are to document the previously broken sidewalk.
