As time passes the NYC DOB and FDNY continue to monitor properties with fire sprinkler systems and require a functional sidewalk curb valve available for use on the outside of the building. The new DEP code requires the functional curb valve to be located within 18” of the city curb line.
The most common issue a homeowner experiences with their sewer is when there is an active backup for the second time in a month and they are tired of spending $300-$400 on having it cleared out again.
The building owner now had to hire an engineer to file plans, get approved by DEP, DOB and hire a water main & sewer contractor to obtain permits. After four months of filing with all of the required agencies, the permits were released and work was ready to begin.
We have created a video to assist in the visual aspect of a sewer installation. It is important for the homeowner to understand the extent of work to be performed, and words can only explain so much.
We hope you find this video helpful!
