STEP 1: We replaced the sewer in the house and burst the pipe
✔ We put new pipe under the house all the way to the bathroom. And we don’t use jackhammer. Kitchen, living room, everything is saved. Just one hole in the bathroom and one hole outside, and client have new pipe under the whole house.
✔ Outside we have to dig in trenches the line, replace the sewer main line and go all the way and connect it to the city. It’s over the 5ft down.
✔ And then we install two-way clean outs for you have access in the future if you need to do any drain clean service.
STEP 2: Inside the house, we removed all the old pipes and installed new ones for a toilet, bath and washing machine
✔ Inside we use Jackhammer to open the floor, remove the old pipe and install new pipes for vanity, for kitchen, for laundry on the back and for toilets.
✔ Then this all is backfilled and of the end just pour concrete. We do just rough patch, no drywall patch.
