Proper Way of Installing Your Seer Pipes
The method applied in the installation of a sewer pipe is very important. If properly installed, sewer pipes can serve for years without any form of damage. When choosing the right method to install the sewer pipe, you’ll have to consider factors such as the material of the pipe as well as where it’s going to be installed. For instance, sewer pipes that are installed within a structure may present different challenges than those installed outside. Here are our top 3 guidelines to help you get started with your sewer installation:
Installation Height and Elevation
Sewer pipes need to be elevated at a certain angle and that determines the approach to take during installation. If two pipes need to be connected, then the elevation starting and ending point should be measured at the beginning as well as the length of both pipes. Sometimes sewer pipes need to be connected to specific fixtures so it’s important to measure this as well.
Laying the Sewer Pipe
When the surface is properly prepared, the next step is to lay the pipe. This is one of the most critical steps because the way the pipe is laid will determine how prone it will be to leakage. Make sure you begin with the point of low elevation as you move up. Simple steps like using a suitable primer before applying any glue to the sewer pipe can make a big difference. The primer helps to clean the pipe and ensure the glue adheres perfectly.
Prepare the Trench
The surface where the pipe needs to be installed needs to be smoothened. There are cases where you will also need to place bedding material (sand is the most often preferred material) at the bottom which will ensure the pipe remains intact by providing adequate support.
