When I’m not performing Green Building activities around the city of St Louis. I field numerous calls to fix and Build everything from- Drywall Repair, Painting, Basic Carpentry, Electrical Repairs, Water Leaks, Roof Repairs, and Plumbing issues.
Today’s Plumbing fix and the costs to fix the Drain Pipe could have been avoided if:
The General Contractor who did the initial installation would have taken the time to realize that something was wrong. See photo the First Photo and Location of the Drain Tile Cover.
The Concrete Contractor who-Formed, Poured, and Finished the Sidewalk would have had the Correct Form Height when pouring the Sidewalk.
St Louis Building Code Official would have been on his game and noted that the drain was in the Incorrect Position.
Since I’m forever the optimist I can see One Benefit to this drain location: the misc dirt and debris is not flowing into the already taxed St Louis Sewer (MSD) System.
