  • Code change

    I believe any over head cleanouts should have a built in 1" or bigger full port valve built into the cover. I don't care about any hocus pocus ways we handle over head C/O. what is needed is a controlable way to drain a full system. PERIOD

    I say all overhead sewers should have a outside clean out.

          We dont have very many basements hear but i can imagine the problem with a clean out above my head
          I have never /almost never gone under to clear a drain

                  In certain areas here when there is a hung sewer there must be a cleanout that extends outside the house with an accessible cleanout ..One inspector require a cast iron panella cap with raised head plug..Yep..In my opinion a good idea, that way if the system backs up pop the plug outside and snake all the way to the street , tank, etc.

                      I never had to go through an over-head clean-out in a basement, and 98% of my area has basements. Most of the new homes in my area have 10' ceilings or slightly higher...I'm pulling a trap or toilet first before I would think about hitting the "over-head" clean-out in the basement.

                      But I hear what you're saying.

                        I know I would never pull an overhead cleanout..I don't even know why they are code to install in certain areas..They are not readily accessible if you need an 8' ladder and have to remove ceiling to get to em'..Most get covered up anyhow
