Many homeowners want their homes to stay clear of dirt, but they do not understand how to go about sewer line installation. The process is not as complicated as they may think, but it is recommended that you hire experts who understand it better and who have the kinds of tools required for the job. Below are the simple steps that such professionals take during sewer line installation.
Elevation calculations: this helps the contractor to determine how far the sewer pipe should go and how deep each end should be.
Slope calculations: this is calculated using elevation measurements. Ending elevation minus starting elevation results in a total drop in elevation. The slope is calculated by dividing this drop by the total pipe length.
Trench digging: this should be done carefully to avoid disturbing the soil structure. In most cases, it is recommendable to dig narrow trenches. You should lay bedding materials, especially sand, to offer more support to the pipe.
Lay the pipes in the dug trench: Install each piece of the pipe at a time. The typical and best ways of doing so are starting from the lower end of the pipe and installing it up the elevation.
Cover the trench with the soil that was the dugout.
Sewer lines are a requirement for every home because they help transport waste into the municipal branch or main sewer line. Professionals can follow the above steps for successful sewer line installation.
