How deep should sewer lines be buried?
It is advised to make the trench 12-24 inches (30-61cm) deep, with enough room to fit the sewer pipe itself and the sod and soil into it. However, these measurements can vary depending on the climate. In colder areas, the pipes should be buried deeper, because of the possibility of sewer water freezing.
How do I install a drainage pipe in my yard?
There are a few steps, which our plumbing specialists in Ottawa follow when installing a drainage pipe:
- Preparing the trench. There are no set rules as for the depth and width of the trench. However, generally, it should be around 12 inches (30cm) deeper from the original placement of the pipe, and twice as wide as the pipe itself;
- The bottom of the trench is filled with sand and ripsaw to even the ground;
- The trench is covered with a landscape fabric which is attached to the sidewalls.
- Then the trench is filled with gravel, which will filter the water and leave out the particles that may provoke clogging.
- Next, the pipe is put in.
- The pipe is covered with another layer of gravel or ripsaw
- The leftover landscape fabric is put on top of the gravel.
- Finally, the rest of the trench is filled with soil.
The process of drainage pipe installation is quite troublesome and requires precision. You should always trust this to experienced professionals like Superior Plumbing. We guarantee the quality and speed of our work.
