It certainly seems like a difficult job to fix your sewer line. I would be sure to have all of the proper materials ready before getting to work. I think it might be important to be sure a properly qualified professional has a look at the sewer line because having an improperly repaired one would probably cause a lot of difficulties. http://www.lavendersedm.com

I occasionally have a sewer gas smell near my washer. But after I run the washer, the smell will go away for a few days. What could the problem be?


Hi Joe

Is that pex pipe on the right your water supply to the washer?

Your sewer gas smell I believe can be eliminated by putting a P trap in the drain PVC line.

(EDIT)
Where the drain hose from the washer hooks into the PVC pipe is NOT airtight which would allow the sewer gas back into the laundry room!

(EDIT EDIT)
If there is a P-trap in your outflow pipe, the only place left for grey water to collect (and stink) would be between the washer and where the waste hose goes into the drain. We've had to use a little bit of bleach on occasion when we haven't used the washer for a bit.
Hope this helps

How do I get lime out of the sewer pipe servicing a toilet?


lime will react with an acid or caustic soda( sodium hydroxide) Talk with a plumber to ensure that any heavy solvent will not harm the pipes first. May be a toilet snake used by plumbers will scrape away the lime allowing it to be flushed to t\he main syatem

Toilet backing up into yard


sounds to me like you have a major clog in the waste pipe leading to the town sewer. If you have access to the cleanout for this pipe you should snake out the line to clear the clog. If you cannot do this then Roto-Rooter can certainly help. You do not want waste water to keep entering your yard as Im sure you are aware of health issues involved. good luck

Leaking sewer pipe


Depending on how many pipes you have connected in the run from the toilet to the concrete pipe, I would replace all of it with plastic pipe and a new soil pipe if I could find one, if not put the plastic in the soil pipe and pour a concrete patch to fix the hole. Without seeing what you have there, it is hard to say for sure. But cast iron is not used much these days and a job to fix, cut, seal, repair, most are replaced. Hope this helps.

Ejector pumps started to go off frequently


The ejector pumps probably pump to the same sewer pipe you had rooted. Rooting can do damage. Trees can break into your sewer pipe, jam them up with roots, and let ground water in. The ground water may be following your sewer pipes on the outside back to your house. It costs a lot, but you can have your pipes examined with a tv camera, the rooter people can do that. Make sure your ejectors have check valves, and they are working right. It's easy for something to get stuck in the check, and then water will come back.

Hooking carbage disposal to diswashing not sure where it hooks on the dishwasher itself


Waste line from dishwasher to waste connects to one of
  • small spigot on extension pipe above the disposal up high under counter
  • small spigot on side of disposal directly above sewer connection, below blade
  • small spigot on sewer line below disposal, but above U trap
at the dishwasher end, the hose connects to the pump output, under the base of the dishwasher, usually left side of center, there is no external spigot
you have to run the waste line under from the back, and connect from the front , by removing the kick plate under the door opening

Sewer pipe


Hi sir simon,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You're installing a new sewer pipe and wonderind how much fall it needs

1/4" per foot. You can buy a plumbers torpedo level to make it easy. You'll see 4 hash marks on the tube. Center the bubble in the middle and the pipe is level, so just adjust the pipe so that the bubble is just touching the outer line and you've got 1/4". No measureing. And it only costs a few dollars.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,

How to Install plumbing in the basement?


A sewer ejector pump is the answer. The waster line is run into the sump basin, pumped through a checkvalve into  the sewer line that grades with gravity.  A vent pipe needs to be run also, (you can't pump out without replacing the air, it's like trying to suck air out of a bottle) If you add a high water alarm, which is a good idea. It is run off of a separate electrical breaker (insurance) to let you know if the pump isn't working before it's flood time.  The check valve makes sure, that what you pump out, stays out. Otherwise the pump will keep cycling.

What is a Vent?


If you look on your roof, you will see pipes sticking out of the roof aprox 12" high. For every pipe that goes down, one needs to go up. The obvious reason we have vents is that sewer gases need to be vented outside of the dwelling. Not so obvious is what happens if they are not included in the waste and vent design. Imagine yourself at McDonalds drinking a soda from a straw. If you put your thumb over the straw, you can pull liquid up from the cup.
