X Marks the Spot

By Hans Tonjes, October 28, 2021

Between 3 and 4 feet below grade, under this X, there is a partial disconnection between fittings in a sewer line. 2 sewer scopes can’t be wrong. 36 hours later… the City has been notified, a plumber is at the ready, a repair is slated for a couple days away. Not one of the glamour moments of Real Estate, but a critical one, the bread and butter of getting the job done. Contractors ready to work? Check! I’m here to help. Hans Tonjes 503-936-4244
