Most suburbs on the south side of Chicago mandate sdr26 sewer pipe only....ray
I remember now it was unincorporated Cook county. The county inspectors wanted the heavy wall water pipe SDR 26 when we where doing repairs in the parkway. Its been at least 5+ years since I had to dig up a parkway. 99% of the sewers I do just need a proper rodding, or a proper clean out installed.
Around here the Engineers on big jobs are starting to require mechanical joints at change overs. IE. SDR 35 to clay. Its adding a lot more money to the job. I think in the end it will cause more problems then it will solve.
Why not just require the Pipelayer to do his job right and offsets won't be a problem.
I found this a few weeks back. I wonder if the installer ever heard of compacting
Those things I presume are rubber/plastic furnco adaptors.
Here if we use them we are required to concrete under them to stop them sinking.
We also have pipe fittings that fit inside of pipe to stop the furnco from sagging.
If it is a bad spot also we have an expansion joint approved for use under the ground to gain up to 5"of movement.
I would only use a furnco as a last resort knowing of problems that I have seen previously.
had a call from a homeowner this week, she was telling me she called a national chain.they came out and power rodded her sewer and told her she needed a completely newer sewer from house to parkway.55 feet long,5 feet deep in parkway=$15,000.i went out and ran my 1065 out to the parkway with a 5 inch saw blade.no problem until the parkway.located sewer and dug up the parkway and cut out 3 feet of sewer line that was filled with tree roots and replaced it with 6 inch pvc.homeowner very thankful.village inspector was there and told me that this chain was digging up sewers all over town for big money. nothing they could do because its up to the homeowner to get the estimate and ok it.
