After living in her house for almost 10 years, a homeowner in Springfield, OH, was notified by her local health department office that her home was very close to a sanitary sewer line. The 80-year-old home had a septic tank on the property, so the owner needed to have the necessary upgrades completed.
She began to research how to have her home’s sewer line connected to the city system. She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning more about our company through online resources like Home Advisor. She met with Inspector Victor Golowin, who specializes in sewer and water line repair inspections. Victor concurred with the local health department and he explained how we would update the home’s sewage system.
One of our crews then began to excavate the earth to install the new sewer line. After working with a local septic service to clear the septic tank, our crew collapsed the older tank and backfilled it and the excavated area with sand, gravel and dirt.
Part of the older septic system featured clay pipe. Clay pipes can fail, crack, rot and erode due to a variety of causes including ground settlement and tree root intrusion. We removed these clay pipes and used stronger and more durable SDR 35 plastic sewer pipes that were connected to the existing tap near the city street.
The homeowner is pleased to have a new, updated sewer system serving her home.
