All of your home’s indoor drains connect at one central drain point, which is a part of your sewer line that leads to the municipal treatment plant or the septic tank. If you’re not the one who’s taking care of your plumbing or if you’ve just moved, then you may be wondering where exactly your sewer line is located.
What Is The Best Way To Locate Pipes Underground?
In order to determine your sewer system’s location, there are a few different steps you can take to finding it, including:
1. Asking The Previous Homeowner You may not think to do this when the property is being handed over, but there’s no harm in asking even if you have had the house for years.
2. Contacting Your Municipality Property maps can be found in municipal centers. Here, you’ll be able to see the location and details regarding underground facilities.
3. Probing The Ground You’ll need to find a cleanout and the line leading out the house in order to locate your sewer line. Using a steel rod, you can conduct probes in areas where you think the lines are.
