Sewer Systems and Homeowners’ Responsibilities
Homes require a certain amount of maintenance and upkeep to keep it functioning properly. From roofs and downspouts to toilets and sinks, from electrical to gas and water to wastewater, understanding how all the pieces of your home function as a whole helps you keep it in good condition.
While it’s easy to get to know appliances that you can see or interact with every day, (like showers and furnaces) there are pieces to your home that aren’t easily visible.
Water has to go somewhere every time it’s used inside your home and when it rains and snows outside your home. Understanding where and how it is disposed of via pipes inside the walls and underneath your home is key to knowing how your home functions.
