Not Your Typical “Trenchless Today” Job

Jobsite After Backfill

Troy, NY – This was not your typical “Trenchless Today” job, the crew HAD to dig a trench this time!  A customer was having an issue with his sewer line going to his septic tank. After our technician was on site, he determined that the house trap inside the basement had settled below the concrete floor. The line going to the tank also settled, causing bellies in the line, and allowing waste to get stuck up. The best solution was to jackhammer the concrete in the basement and remove the old cast iron house trap. The crew replaced the trap with a new PVC trap, and it was properly installed so there would be no settling below the concrete. The crew then ran a new 4” PVC line from the newly installed house trap, out to the septic tank. The new line was installed with the proper pitch, ensuring there would be no bellies. After the line was installed, the crew backfilled the trench and leveled out the work area to grade. The job duration was one day, including mobilization, set up, prep, and tear down.
