Sewer repair in Mt. Vernon, Wa

This was a messy one.

This configuration tied two neighbor's sewers together. The neighbor had replaced his sewer 20 years ago, but the tie-in was still on my customer's line, as was the main sewer.

We had to dig it up, put in a clean out to access the 80' that runs under slab and a clean out to do the sewer to the street. Confusing, yes. And dirty.

After we did the repairs, we still had to clean the sewer.

Looks like a newly installed plumbing. If this is for drinking water, then this will reduce the risk of microbes leaking into the plumbing system.

Hi! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about plumbing in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about plumbing. Keep it up! This is a good read. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
Water systems of ancient times relied on gravity for the supply of water, using pipes or channels usually made of clay, lead, bamboo, wood, or stone. Hollowed wooden logs wrapped in steel banding were used for plumbing pipes, particularly water mains. Logs were used for water distribution in England close to 500 years ago. US cities began using hollowed logs in the late 1700s through the 1800s.
Our mission is to provide our customers with the highest quality of service resulting in long lasting relationships.

Is this for real. That is amazing to me that people let their sewer repairs get that far behind. In Clearfield, PA there are inspections to make sure you are not a health hazard.
