All Plumbing Taps the Main Sewer Line for New
Construction in the Glassell Park Neighborhood
of Los Angeles
All Plumbing taps a main sewer line to bring
sewer service to the property line of a new home
construction in a hillside neighborhood four
miles north of downtown Los Angeles. Fix All
Plumbing owner, John (right), poses with a
worker at the trench.
After ascertaining the location of underground
pipes, a ten foot trench is dug from the
property line to the sewer main. Workers
carefully remove earth around a water main as
well as a smaller pipe found nearby to prepare
for the sewer installation in Los Angeles.
After the trench is finished workers install
safety jacks to support the trench walls.
Workers remove additional dirt by hand to
provide access to the sewer main and a straight
run to the property line.
