Default Why



This guy lived here for 4 years, suddenly this became a problem. Cast iron building drain snapped clean off. I think it happened when the house was built by an excavator bucket during sewer hookup. Any one else care to theorize?

The iron sheared. It happens. Bad bedding, the ground snapped it clean. I doubt it was like that for 4 years, but I might have been that way for a bit.

I have had to repair a 3" ductile water main that sheared off. Bad/careless bedding, then when the school was added on to, the formerly grass area was covered with asphalt and turned into a parking lot.
