|In response to Re: home sewer vent design|
If you connect basement toilets or showers into an underground drain system, there is no way to avoid the risk of a backup. In fact you can almost be certain it will happen at some point.
: I want to redo all my basement sewer drains, and need some thoughts on vent design. Presently, the only vent for the whole house is on the main sewer line outside the house (no sewer vent in the basement).
: Any thoughts on what I should look out for? I'm going to put a bunch of cleanouts in the system, incl. one a few feet from the floor of the basement. Any thoughts would be mucho appreciated. Thanks in advance!
