replacing old sewer and water mains


Sewer & Water Main Installations

Sewer and water mains are buried way under the ground or under your home. Because of this, they are challenging when it comes to installation or repair. This can be frustrating for homeowners as they are not visible.

This is why it is so important to hire professionals like Keemer Plumbing. We service Salt Lake City and the entire Wasatch Front Utah metro area.

Residential Sewer & Water Mains Sizes & Depths

  • Both need to be 6″ below the frost line
  • The frost line is 30″ to 36″ on average in our area
  • Sewer Mains are 4″ in size
  • They range from about 5′ to 10′ deep
  • Water Mains are 3/4″ to 1″ in size
  • The depth range is 40″ – 50″ deep
  • These are approximate if they are installed by Utah building code recommendations

Sewer & Water Main Low Flow & Draining Issues

If you notice a decrease in the water pressure on your property, the problem may be caused by blocked water main pipes. If you have having slow sewer draining issues, you also might have some blockage. More often we find this blockage is the problem in our Utah valley area.

Water mains are the line that delivers the water from the neighborhood or city supply and connects to your property. Sewer mains are the line that empties the water and solids when flushed or drained into a central sewer system. Many of the plumbing main lines are older and smaller than the rest of the area’s supply lines. Because of this eventual replacement of the water or sewer line is often inevitable. This will fully rectify the sewer or water issues to your property. This is especially true in older homes in the valley.

What Causes Water & Sewer Low Flow Issues

  • Low flow from clasping pipes
  • Blockage from tree roots
  • Build up from sediment
  • Leaking from cracks
  • Earth movement issues from earthquakes
