sewer connection, often referred to as a sewer tap, refers to the place where a building’s sanitary sewer system connects to a city or municipality sewer system.

The City of Denver video-inspects city main sewer lines on an ongoing basis. They are looking for cracks, breaks, and disconnected private lateral lines that may be leaking into the ground and possibly making its way to our rivers, streams, and lakes. If a broken, cracked, or disconnected sewer tap is found, the homeowner is delivered a letter giving them 25 days to correct the problem.

If you have received the “city letter,” (or even if you haven’t) Apex Plumbing can guide you through the sewer tap repair process. We offer free written estimates, multi-tap discounts, and a finished product that meets or exceeds local and national codes and industry standards.
