Installing Water and Sewer

Installing water and sewer services is easiest done before any footings, or foundations, are poured.

Our excavation contractors were not expected back for a few days, but they were rained out at another project. They surprised me by appearing yesterday morning with their crew. I quickly rescheduled my material delivery to allow them time to install the sewer main.

The first step is to make a connection to the man hole.

It has been raining, or threatening rain, for the last few days but the project fit right in between showers. Someone is on my side.

This has been a huge first step. I have no nore excuses. I have to go to work. If my ICF forms arrrive by the middle of next week, there should be no delays.

Thanks to a very efficient crew.
