Plumbing layout

All plumbing needs to properly be vented to work and at it’s finest. Sewer systems before city sewer was installed was on private septic tanks. The picture above shows you that it was basically a huge whole with a some kind of container to hold and contain all of the debris. Over time when pipes inside the septic tank fell or broke all plumbers did to repair the issue was feed a new pipe threw the septic system instead of removing septic tank itself.
Septic tanks are very heavy and there’s no need to dispose of them.

Winter plumbing check list?

Make sure before the winter months and the ground freezes you mark where all your drain clean outs in your yard are. You never know when that unexpected drain clog will happen. Don’t forget to mark the clean outs before it’s to late. If you don’t have any outside clean outs make sure you drain your outside exterior sillcocks/hose bibs. If they freeze and break they will need to be replaced in the Spring.
