In response to Re: Installing a main line cleanout
I suspect you already have a cleanout. It is usually a tee in the line about 2 feet from the house where it changes to tile. You will have to cut the brass plug out with a hammer and chisel and then install a new 3 1/2" plastic plug. There are no fittings made that will enable you to extend the cleanout up to the ground level.

: I have a back-up somewhere in my main sewer line, and im planning on installing an outside cleanout. I was wondering if you had any ideas on footage where the cast iron would meet the clay tiles, i figure this would be my entry point to install a pvc cleanout, breaking the first clay tile out. I figure to use hydraulic cement on the pvc to clay tile and a rubber connector from the pvc to cast iron. The house was built sometime in the middle 60's. Does this sound like a sound plan.
