I have a little plaque in my computer room. It states, "I am master of this house. Whatever my wife wishes shall be done."

This is what we are $15K up to.

It is difficult work. Every time I stepped outside I broke into a sweat. Probably because the temps are in the 90's.
Somehow this reminds me of that movie " Caddy Shack " !

Seriously, I'm just not getting the multiple routes a sewer line takes. Is your house setup with multiple outlets or something? Really confusing with all those trenches. Maybe they couldn't fine the right pipe?

Carl it's best explained this way. In Texas they use the SRS system (Sewer Recycle System). That's why we often hear Wayne telling the same old stuff over and over. It is what it is and that's what he made of it!

I guess it depends on how many water fixtures one has and where they are located in the dwelling. Mine come from the W/Dryer out to the main, kitchen straight out to that W/D run, back bathroom straight out to the main and side BR down the side of the house, right turn in Albuquerque and to the main.

IF you would like to help with the payment I'll have an architect draw the exact layout.

I guess if you would come visit and see the house and yard you would have a better understanding of Southern Living.

It's almost as if the drainage was an afterthought of the foundation

Up north here, we put the drainage in first, then we build up on top of that. So all drains pretty much are routed through one main outlet. I should know, I designed mine in the new addition and rebuild of what's going on here. It's all buried under the slab foundation and encased in concrete.

Carl,

All our drains from the inside fixtures are into and through the foundation. The tunnel you see is on the main bathroom where auger and camera saw cracking and collapse. The kitchen sink ran through the foundation, under the foundation and connected to the line at the back bathroom. The front bathroom where the tunnel is ran through the foundation and out to the side for a line run to the main. Yes. When building a house all the lines run under the foundation down here just like up there. When there is a problem the alternative is to not tunnel extremely but come out and use external lines. Easier to get to and fix should something go wrong.

What would they do in NE if a pipe under the foundation in a basement collapsed? Most likely jack hammer a hole in the basement and fix the problem. Can't do that here. To much destruction to the living quarters.

The W/D runs to the kitchen line. The kitchen one, when using the auger pulled out mud, which means a collapse past the kitchen line.

Rather than tunneling from the W/D to the back of the house bathroom via the kitchen, it is so much less costly to come out through the wall and run new lines.

The main runs to the back alley of the house and is about 50 feet. All of the runs meet at the back of the house bathroom and junction into the main.

Many of the NE houses have the plumbing running through the basement and to a main sewer line. Your sewer lines may be deeper than ours because of frost/winter freeze. Ours are about 18 inches under ground. We don't have any basements. Seven feet down is the water table. Much of the depth is "Gumbo Soil." Gumbo Soil has small amounts of sand and organic materials but an overwhelming presence of clay. Very difficult to work with. We don't do deep in the South.

I designed Connie's sewer system with a little help from my friends. Y'all know who I mean. All my pipes go thru the wooden floor and out from underneath her heavy metal foundation to the appropriate tank. The toilet and kitchen sink go to the septic tank that also has an above ground access cap for RV dumping using a mascerator pump.

The shower and bathroom sink will eventually go to a gray water tank that will have a bilge pump in it. It is legal in most places to use grey water to water landscape plants, but you canít spray it into the air so sprinklers are out. Mine will connect to my drip irrigation system.

Unfortunately, I didnít think about making sure the gray tank was filled before back filling the sand. It will require a bit of remediation before it can be used.

Isnít this a fun topic?
