Installing sewer clean out yourself? Can it be done?
Asked Apr 24, 2007, 10:06 AM
My husband wants to install our sewer clean out himself. I don't want it to sound like he is not handy, but... Anyway, the sewer repair technician quoted a price of $1300 to do the job. My husband says he can do it himself. He talked to a friend of his that is a plumber who told him what parts he would need, etc. Has anyone done this who is not a professional in the field? If so, can you give me any pointers or advice? I'm thinking if it costs that much for a pro, there must be a reason. Our main line is only 3 feet underground, so my husband would at least like to do the digging himself to maybe save some money.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
