Ask Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς for connection to the sewerage network
The connection of the domestic sewage networks with the central public sewerage can be treated by Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς since it has benefits for the environmental management of the water but also saves the users from the “headache” of emptying the septic tank occasionally.
However, the central sewerage network is not controlled by you, and many times it works unpredictably. So to protect your home network and by extension, your home or business Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς proposes a series of actions.
- Flood protection using a non-return valve
- Protect yourself from odors by installing an odor trap
- Protect yourself from mice by using a non-return valve
- Build a control well on the sidewalk
- Take care of the construction of the new connection
One problem that can be quite serious, especially if there are basements or levels in the housing of your house below street level is the return of water from the main sewer network. The central network returns sewage to your network:
- either because you create a blockage of its natural flow (plug),
- or because it is overloaded by illegal rainwater connections in case of heavy rainfall.
For the protection of your network, Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς choose:
- The installation of a flood protection system (non-return valve) and
- The construction (if deemed necessary by your plumber) of a relief well.
The non-return valve is installed in a shaft after the typewriter and must be easily accessible for regular inspection.
What to look out for:
When buying the non-return, prefer a branded one and if you can afford it, buy and save an extra “tongue“. It is the only consumable of the non-return valve and its acquisition will save you from its search when after years the model you have installed will be difficult to find.
Discuss with your plumber from Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς how you will manage the wastewater produced by your own use when the non-return valve stops the free flow to protect us from the wastewater of the public network.
If the wastewater produced by your own use is so large that you risk flooding it, there are the solutions of:
- pump relief well or
- non-return valve with a system for discharging the generated wastewater.
The non-return valve needs maintenance, at intervals related to use, maintenance. This has to do with the cleaning of the tongue/flap. It must therefore be easily accessible for maintenance and inspection.
Especially if it is located at a great depth, the internal dimensions of the well must be large enough so that the conservator of Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς can easily kneel inside the well to approach it.
Smells develop or are transmitted in the central sewerage network. These odors can be mainly due to sulfites or biogas. The odors through the gases are constantly looking for passages to expand or emerge.
To protect your network from these odors, it is necessary to use an odor trap. There are open and closed type motors.
Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς recommends that you place the machine in a shaft outside the housing of the house and that it is easily accessible for inspection and maintenance. Install before the non-return valve.
Mice – cockroaches
The public sewage network is also a network for the movement of rats, mice, and cockroaches.
Here, too, the problem can be largely addressed by the use of a non-return valve. Unfortunately, small mice and cockroaches are likely to pass through the dam when it opens to allow sewage to pass through, but it is still a barrier between your home network and the public.
What to look out for:
There are non-return valves, which offer extra protection from mice. If you find them, prefer them.
Control well on the sidewalk
The domestic sewerage network ends at your plotline, i.e at your fence, from there and beyond (sidewalk) the network is public. So in a blockage or a return of sewage Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς check if the problem is yours or the Municipality.
If the problem is the Municipality responsible for the restoration is the last, if the problem is yours, we take on the service.
The construction of an inspection well on the sidewalk. From this well, you will be able to check if the plug is in the private or public network. If when opening the lid the well is flooded, the responsible for the cleaning is the Municipality, if not the plug is in your network.
Take care of the construction of the new connection
The problems Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς encounter when maintaining sewer networks are many and often have to do with poor construction.
A mistake or failure in the original construction can systematically bother you in the future. The main problems Αποφράξεις Πειραιάς face are:
- roots entering the network,
- difficult access to inspection and maintenance,
- pipes that have “sat” dragged by landslides,
- odors produced by failures in the correct performance of inclination and
- insulation in the wells.
