What is a Sand/Oil Interceptor?

Commercial properties have a different set of rules when it comes to drainage.  For businesses that use water for car washes or for vehicles maintenance, a sand/oil interceptor needs to be installed to capture dirt, sand, minor petroleum spills, etc. that enter floor drains and keep them out of the municipality’s wastewater system.  The water is filtered through the interceptor and continues on to the main, clean and not harmful to the environment.   Click here for typical guidelines.  In this case our favorite equipment dealer, Steel Tractor, needed the interceptor installed per the City of Fountain, as well as downspout extensions rerouted.

Going Trenchless in Broadmoor

Last week, we replaced a customer’s sewer service via pipeburst.  It’s important to note that the house was under contract and the last thing the seller wanted was to turn their home over to the new owners with an ugly trench-scar in the yard.  By digging two small holes, we were able to limit damage to the beautiful lawn.  In fact, you can’t even see where we dug up by the house (though you might be about to spot the white caps from the new cleanouts we installed).

Using two trenchless methods, we pipeburst new pipe in from the house to the cleanouts, and then were able to install a liner for the rest of the way to the main.  Shout out to Eric Scott of Stuart Scott LTD Group for being great to work with.
