We just moved into a 9yo rancher that has a unique sewer line problem.
Here's the deal.
Rancher build in back of homes on established street. Water table only 3 ft
Owner wanted to connect to city sewer but neighbor (between the rancher and
city sewer) refused access to install run to street.
Owner decided to tap into city sewer from rear of property (1.5 acre lot)...
loooong ass run and half of the distance is thru woods.
Every two years (during winter... go figure), sewer backs up into the crawl
space. We want to avoid this.
We determined the following:
Booster pumps throughout the run (too costly)
Switch to septic (not sure township will allow a disconnect to go to septic
system and lose the $) plus the new ski slope out back
Buy the owner of the property in front of the house a big screen TV and
maybe then he'll allow access.
Has anyone dealt with such a situation? Any suggestions? Help.... we don't
want any turds floating in the crawl space!
Thanks for your time,
