Sewer inspection openings are an essential component of any sewer system. They provide access to the pipes for cleaning, maintenance, and repairs. Without these openings, sewer systems would be much more difficult to manage and maintain.
A sewer inspection opening, also known as a cleanout, is a capped pipe that extends from the sewer line to the surface. These openings are typically located at key points along the sewer line, such as at bends, intersections, or changes in grade. They allow sewer professionals to access the pipes with specialized tools and equipment, making it easier to perform inspections, cleanings, and repairs.
