Is this builder's fault
Posted by Nita Das on September 21, 1999 at 21:31:42:
My home is getting built. When I purchased the lot the sales person didn't say anything about sewer
backup problem. When they constructed my basement they left a big hole( 10" X 9" ). If I look carefully
I found there is a plastic box and in the middle I can see the portion of the sewer pipe. My construction
manager told that its a valve to protect your basement in case of sewer backup. In that locality
none of other houses have this problem. Does this mean builder purposely didn't disclose it ?
Is it possible that I will be allowed not to close the house ? I am buying house for the first time. So I
don't want to be upset by sewer problem.

If I have to take this house is there any permanent solution. Some body please post.
