Branchement: Connecting Services to the Land

This week we’re expecting SAUR to turn up and connect assainissement to the land at the same time as the Mairie staff connect the water.

While that’s going on we’ve been advised to also get our electricity and phone pipes down, so we’ve picked up the gaines that we need and are busing working out where to put them and also what we need to do in order to bury them to the regulations.

There’s some useful info on Leroy Merlin with respect to depths and distances. It’s common sense really, that you’d put dirty water below clean and electricity above water. Reassuring!

There’s also a useful image showing how to layer the contents of the trench around the pipe.

able = sand
terre de remblai = backfill soil
