It doesn't flow uphill

As our founder Wayne Maples always said, *&^%$ doesn't flow uphill.  So, in honor of national tape measure day, know that plumbers live by the tape measure.  Or in plumbing terms, by "grade".  Grade is the slope applied to the drains below your home, or your property's sewer line to the street.  A proper drain system below your home should have a minimum downward grade of 1" every 4'.  Most levels will show that slope as a 1/4 bubble.

Trenchless Sewer Line Replacement

“A MapleService trenchless sewer line replacement can make a new sewer line install invisible.  Well, almost invisible.  A trenchless sewer line replacement requires a small excavation near the city connection, and a small excavation up near the home, normally at a clean-out.  The clean-out is a typical sewer entry point used for normal cleaning and maintenance, usually located just next to the house.  From the clean-out, a cable is inserted and ran to the small excavation at the street, attached to a hydraulic “jack” .  Back at the clean-out, the new pipe is connected to the “fed-through cable”.  Then, the hydraulic jack pulls the cable through and, thus, pulls through the new pipe all the way to the jack location.  This procedure is also known as a trenchless “pull”.  The new pipe guarantees no root intrusion.  MapleService offers trenchless sewer line replacement in Humboldt County and Sonoma County.”
