Sewer Drain connected 10/25/2022

We are two houses up from the end of the city sewer line. I wanted to go septic to be more "off-grid", but the permit for a septic alone was $5k. The permit for electrical, water, and sewer was the same price, so....

Still, 180 feet of 4" drain lines with the connectors wasn't cheap - it was about $700. Not to mention the $400 for the trench. But the trench was super cheap, actually - $1 / foot. I have two trenches - one for sewer, one for power. Guy was super nice digging it, too. He had some kind of GPS app on his mini excavator that allowed him to put the slope at 1/8" / foot. I barely had to add any base to the pipe to get it at the right angle. It took me about 4 hours to install and glue all the pipe together.

I put cleanouts every 50 feet, and then called the city inspector to come hook it up. But he said he would just bring me a coupler and let me do it myself. It was pretty easy - cut off the cap on the city tap, and connect mine in, then screw down the cinch bands. Hoping the rain today doesn't wash everything out. Inspector will let me know if I pass....
