The pipes coming under the footing...
September 11, 2010
Here is an interesting photo of the north east corner of the house.
This is where the mechanical room will be in the basement. It shows:
- the grounding rod- that will be tied to the electrical panel, so that the third prong of all our electrical plug-ins get grounded!
- the water line- the small semi-rigid 3/4" thick umbilical chord to fresh Edmonton water
- the sewer drain. for you know what.
- the weeping tile drain.
This morning I spend a good hour scraping all the clay out of the weeping tile drain. I wonder why no one bothered to put a cap on it, when the placed it in the ground before the footings were poured. and I fear I will have to dig up the tile on the other side of the wall to ensure it is actually connected.
