Installation

 

Sewer-Saver® - Reinforced concrete Sewer-Savers are designed to provide effective protection for exposed sewer cleanouts. The Sewer-Saver may be installed via a variety of methods, to meet your specific site requirements. Some examples are as follows:

 

1) New Sewer with Ongoing Site Construction - Simply drop the Sewer-Saver directly over exposed PVC riser. Riser will be more easily seen by drivers of construction equipment with protection provided in the event the riser is struck by construction equipment/trucks. PHOTO

 

2a) Finalized Construction Site (light vehicular traffic) - With the surface being at final grade level. Three (3) simple steps:

1) Dig around riser with a shovel such that Sewer-Saver will be slightly above grade when installed.

2) Cut off PVC riser such that top of cleanout plug will be slightly below Sewer-Saver when Sewer-Saver is installed.

3) Install cleanout adaptor w/ plug onto riser. Position Sewer-Saver over riser. Backfill and tamp soil in place. DRAWING and PHOTO

 

2b) Finalized Construction Site (medium vehicular traffic) - With the surface being at final grade level. Four (4) simple steps:

1) Dig around riser with a shovel such that upper Sewer-Saver will be slightly above grade when installed.

2) Set lower Sewer-Saver in bottom of hole.

3) Cut off PVC riser such that top of cleanout plug will be slightly below upper Sewer-Saver when Sewer-Saver is installed.

4) Install cleanout adaptor w/ plug onto riser. Space-out and position upper Sewer-Saver over riser using gravel as spacer material. Backfill and tamp soil in place. DRAWING and PHOTO .

 

Note: Re 2a & 2b, For enhanced stability, dig down an additional amount, tamp in gravel at bottom of hole.

 

3) Sewer-Saver mounted on surface of ground - Sometimes it is desirable to simply mount the Sewer-Saver over a stubbed Sewer-Cleanout as a final installation (ie utility ROW or RV park).  The final installation will look something like this:  PHOTO

 

4) Sewer-Saver recessed into ground, Cleanout stubbed above. - An easy and popular installation method. Just trench around existing Cleanout, drop in Sewer-Saver. Prevents grass from growing around Cleanout perimeter, Cleanout is more easily seen by lawn care operators, protects subsurface plumbing in the event of impact.  The final installation will look something like this:  PHOTO
