  • another "CANT FIX STUPID"

    We`ll see if anyone can figure out the job I did yesterday.
    I get a call to go 60 miles away from the shop in another town.
    All the plumbers that showed up to this site told the HO they needed a new sewer.

    Sewage was surfacing about 40` from the house out by the alley next to a shed.
    I first asked the HO if they paid a city sewer bill so I knew that there was not a septic tank as this house was on the edge of town.
    I told the HO we needed to move the shed first before I could tell what was going on. I had an Idea in my head
    The other plumbers told the HO he damaged his sewer when he placed the shed.
    I called Dig Safe for locates and told the HO I would see em in the morning and we would fix this problem.

    So take a guess what was wrong ?

    They used the septic tank as the foundation/footer for the shed?

            Someone will guess it. It`s really easy. It`s one thing that you should always check when doing sewer work.

              the shed was built on top of the sewer service. this caused a backup to the house and/or broke the saddle?

              or

              check slope?

              or

              tree roots. looks like the HO cut a tree down?

                  Something you should always check when doing sewer work?

                  I always check if they are on city sewer or septic,
                  I also check if they are on a sewage pump or not,
                  then I check for the best cleanout access,
                  ...then I clean the drain.

                  So, if its not a septic tank and its not a sewage pump, then it must be a crushed pipe under the shed, or maybe even a manhole!

                    We posted 'manhole' at the same time! Great minds think alike. Hopefully we are right.
