Nice trucks. I stalked you on Facebook. How do you get away with installing your sewers so shallow in Canada ?

Doesn’t the ground freezing cause problems ? Some I looked at only looked 5-6 feet deep at most.
We are right in line with Detroit. We only get about 1-1.5’ of frost at most. We have zero frost here right now. Did have a sewer freeze once. I told the customer it would. I tied a new service into an existing one. No warranty or guarantee on that one. I was against it from the start.

Empty pipes don't freeze. No clog no problem.
Nope but when the only use is a cup of condensate water off a boiler and one flush per day the flow wasn’t enough to get away before the freezing cold pipe made it freeze up. Once the ice started freezing it built up. Jetted it from down stream of the ice dam with warm water then camera’d. Didn’t hold water. So that was the only explanation we could come up with.
