What is a Property Line Cleanout?
Most homes will have a cleanout or access point near the home so that a plumber can easily access the pipe to inspect and clean it. Older homes in the San Jose area may not have a cleanout located at the property line. Such a cleanout is, as the name entails, at the edge of the property near where the home’s sewer lateral line connects into the utility’s. For San Jose and most surrounding cities in our area, this is the point where a home owner’s responsibility ends and the utility that supplies the homeowner with sewer service begins.
Unfortunately, this does not mean that the sewer utility will clear any problems in their lateral line to the main sewer line in the street. In most locals, they will if, and only if, there is a cleanout available at the property line. With a cleanout at the property line, the sewer utility company will usually clear/resolve any problems from that point on.
When to Install a property line cleanout?
If you suspect a problem in the sewer line connecting from the street to your property, installing a cleanout will allow you, in most locals, to simply call your sewer utility and have them resolve any problems.
