WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SEWER PIPE INSTALLATION PROCESS

Home / What You Need to Know About the Sewer Pipe Installation Process

For a sewer line to be durable, a lot of factors come into play. One of these factors involves proper sewer installation. Attaboy Plumbing, trusted expert in sewer installation and sewer repair in Oroville, CA, talks about how we go about a successful pipe installation.

1. HEIGHT AND ELEVATION CALCULATIONS

Proper sewer pipe installation involves extensive calculation. For instance, the pipes need to be elevated to a certain angle. This elevation will determine the approach we should take during installation.

2. SLOPE EVALUATION

We apply a specific value for the pitch depending on the length of the pipe. To get a pitch, we need to calculate the length and elevation. That means a drop of 1/8 to 1/4 per foot is needed for a four-inch pipe.

3. PREPARING THE TRENCH

For traditional sewer pipe installation involving digging, the trench has to be at least twice the diameter of the pipe. You can even add a bedding material for full support of the pipe.

4. INSTALLATION OF THE SEWER PIPES

After the above preparations, our team can start installing the pipes from a low elevation. We apply a primer before applying glue to the pipes. We also check for any signs of poor connections before covering the lines.

Even with proper installation, sewer pipes can succumb to damage after some time. Watch out for these signs that indicate the need for sewer repair services.

WATER LEAKS

Water leaks are a sign that you might have a broken pipe. If the damage is severe, there may be a need for a sewer pipe replacement.

POOR DRAINAGE

If there are multiple clogs in your home at the same time, there could be a problem with your main sewer line. Consider hiring a professional to properly assess the extent of the damage.

SEWER ODOR

If there’s a broken pipe, an unpleasant smell might linger around the area. Call an expert for a sewer pipe repair and control sewage odors.

Recurring sewer issues might indicate the need for a new sewer pipe system. Contact Attaboy Plumbing today and let us cater to your sewer pipe concerns.
