Question on pipe repair (related to posts below)
Posted by Doug on January 15, 2004 at 15:02:53:

I am going to replace a cast iron section running from the kitchen to the main sewer beacuse the pipe is rusted out and leaks.

The leakage has been pooling under the house and slowly settling into the dirt, but in the leak area, it is muddy and has been collecting sink and idshwasher runoff for at least a week or so.

Once I repair the leak, what should I do to the soil to prevent mold and make it sanitary? I'm going to install a fan on the vent to dry it out.
