This week has been a good one towards getting moved in to our new house. We needed to have a sewer connection and an electrical connection for our RV so that we can live in it in the back yard while we take our time fixing up the house. We also did not want to buy all of the furniture we need and then leave for six months while we go back to work. So, finding the right people to do the work was first on our list of things to do.
All American Septic was the right company for the job of adding a sewer connection. I had NO IDEA what all was involved in adding one. I don’t know what exactly I thought they would do, but it is a lot of work, and a lot of digging to get it done.
First, they had to find the septic tank by poking a metal rod into the ground in various places until they hit a solid slab. Then, they used a backhoe to dig up the existing sewer line from the house to the septic tank. Once that was done, they dug another trench from the existing line to the place where we wanted the sewer connection to be.
After all the digging was done, the plumber set to work placing the lines. He used a sort of epoxy glue to connect everything together, first the purple primer, then the glue, then stick the pipes and fittings together. After he set the sewer connection in place, he also moved the drain pipe for the washing machine. The previous owner of the house had the drain just pouring the water out into the yard. We had him attach it to where the water will go into the septic tank. He was finished doing all of that in about three hours, then used the backhoe to cover it all up. They did a fabulous job of it, and the yard looks good after it was all done.
The result of all that work was this sewer connection for our RV in our backyard. The next thing we need is an electric connection.
