A sewer clean -ut is an important part of your home’s plumbing and waste disposal system. Every homeowner should know where the sewer clean out is located, and landlords should make sure that their tenants are aware of the location of the sewer clean out as well.
The sewer clean-out is a pipe with a cap that provides access to the sewer line so that blockages can be removed. The lateral sewer line is the sewer line that connects your home to the public sewer system. Often the clean out is near the home itself, or near the property line. Sometimes a clean out is located inside the basement of the home or in the crawl space.
