What is a Cleanout Cap?

A cleanout is a vertical pipe that connects to the underground sanitary sewer system. It has a removable cap in case you or your plumber need to access the sewer line. Sanitary sewer cleanout pipes are typically located somewhere near the front of the house (sometimes hidden in a flower bed), and are made of PVC pipe.

Why Do I Need a Cleanout Cap?

  • To prevent rainwater from entering the sanitary sewer system.
  • To keep leaves, grass and other debris out of the line.
  • To keep rodents and insects from entering the line and your house.
