Shared Side Sewer Line Repair

Shared side sewer lines are common in older Seattle neighborhoods, where multiple homes are connected to a single line. While convenient, these shared sewer lines require coordinated maintenance and repairs when issues arise.

Since multiple properties rely on the shared line, any problems necessitate the involvement of a specialized repair company like Ben’s Plumbing. Many neighborhoods have established shared sewer line responsibility agreements where homeowners contribute regular fees to cover the line’s upkeep. However, without such an arrangement, repair costs are typically divided among the connected properties.

Shared side sewer lines necessitate a collaborative approach among homeowners to ensure efficient management of the shared sewer line. Regular maintenance and clear communication can help mitigate the challenges of this shared resource.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I find the sewer line on my property?

When it comes to locating the drain line on your property, it’s best to enlist the expertise of professional plumbers. At Ben’s Plumbing, we have the specialized equipment and knowledge to accurately pinpoint the precise location of your sewer infrastructure.

Rather than attempting to locate it on your own, which can be a complex and potentially risky endeavor, turn to the experienced team at Ben’s Plumbing. Our trained technicians will promptly and accurately identify the location of your sewer line, giving you the peace of mind that comes with knowing the precise layout of this essential component of your property’s infrastructure.

What is the shared sewer side?

It is a critical piece of infrastructure that serves multiple homes or properties within a neighborhood. This single sewer line extends from the connected properties and ultimately ties into the public sewerage system.

The shared nature of this sewer line means that it is utilized by several homes, rather than a single individual property. This collaborative setup can present unique challenges when it comes to maintenance and repairs, as any issues with the shared line have the potential to impact all the connected properties.

Recognizing the complexity of shared side sewer lines, it is essential to work with experienced, licensed plumbing professionals who can properly maintain, troubleshoot, and address any problems that may arise. By partnering with a reputable provider like Ben’s Plumbing, you can ensure the continued reliable performance of this essential shared infrastructure, benefiting the entire neighborhood.

What is a lateral line in plumbing?

A lateral line is the plumbing line that is responsible for connecting the internal plumbing to the public sewer network or a private septic tank. This pipe runs laterally, or horizontally, from the house to the larger sewer main in the street or the septic tank located on the property.

As the link between a home’s plumbing and the wider sewage infrastructure, the lateral line plays a vital role in waste removal and the overall functioning of a property’s plumbing system. Any issues or blockages with the lateral line can have significant consequences, potentially leading to backups, overflows, and other plumbing-related problems within the home.

Maintaining the integrity and proper operation of the lateral line is essential for ensuring the smooth and efficient removal of wastewater from the property. Regular inspection and prompt repair of any issues with the lateral line by a licensed plumbing professional can help prevent costly and disruptive plumbing failures.

Can sewer lines and water lines cross?

While sewer lines and water lines may occasionally cross paths, there are specific guidelines and regulations that must be followed to ensure the integrity and safety of the water supply. The primary concern is preventing any potential contamination of the clean drinking water by wastewater or sewage.

When sewer and water lines intersect, there must be a minimum separation distance maintained between them, as specified by local plumbing codes and building standards. This separation helps to create a barrier and ensure that any leaks or breaches do not allow wastewater to seep into the freshwater pipes. When addressing crossed lines in your backyard, it is best to use a licensed and trusted plumber like Ben’s Plumbing.

Ben's Plumbing is AWESOME! They are very responsive, very flexible, very communicative and great to work with! The team had great knowledge and provided suggestions over the phone to attempt to unclog a pipe. They were able to squeeze me into their schedule and it was great because they helped resolve an issue before it became a larger issue. Brian came out and helped provided some preventative support as well. Great, honest people and I recommend them 1000%!

Ben is always the guy I want on the job, and for the past couple years he's been quick, responsive, and a professional at the work I've needed him to get done for me. He's the local guy that always has your best interest in mind - for example this last testing work he did, he noticed that whoever performed my last sprinkler testing forgot to turn the system back on! He truly caught & made a life-saving fix for us, which shows his professional knowledge and attention to what's going on around him. Thanks again for the great work and conversation, Ben, see you next year I hope!

Our water heater decided to start leaking at 3pm on a Friday and the team at Ben's Plumbing got back to me quickly, got me a bid that wasnt outrageous, and scheduled me for their first slot on Monday morning. The installers arrived on time, were quick, thoughtful, and did great work. I'd totally recommend Ben's Plumbing to anyone.

Nic from Ben’s Plumbing was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING fixing the leak from our toilet yesterday with skill and finesse! Upon arrival, he immediately expertly assessed the problem(s) and proposed an excellent approach, with options, to resolve the issues. I had complete confidence in his capability to handle the expected and unexpected with this repair. I highly, highly recommend Nic (and Ben’s Plumbing) for any work, and we will be coming back again for additional projects and needed repairs at our house. Nic is an excellent communicator and explained everything clearly to a plumbing novice, answered all of my questions, was extraordinarily neat in opening up the drywall and then tidying up at the end of his work. Because of the blessing to me of Nic, I can now sleep peacefully at night knowing that a trustworthy repair has been completed. Thank you, Nic, and Ben’s Plumbing!

Easy, kind, down to earth from start to finish. I felt the costs were transparent and the work was done well and efficiently. We had a water heater issue and they took care of us within 24 hours on the weekend. Text communication was an option and online payment made things easy. Will use Ben’s again.

"Really nice people, from the office to the field. Our engineer was super helpful and got the repair done quickly, including a trip to the hardware store to get the right part for our quirky old house. I’m bummed that we used a “name brand” service on our recent sewer project - wish I had know about"

"I hired Ben's to take care of the plumbing for two bathroom fluffs in our home - the first visit involved removing the old faucets and the second visit was to install new faucets and a (tricky) Kohler Reach toilet. I can't remember the first plumber's name, but Nick did the installs and they were both great to work with"
