Sewer Dumping (Plumbers help)

I'm not sure where to post this but here goes. For those times I'd like to dump at my home, I'd like to use the 4" sewer line connection. The problem is, I have three of them.

One by the street and two up by the front of the house within 2 feet of each other.

Which one should I use?

Also, it isn't illegal to do this in my community.

Thanks,

At my house, I have three also. They're clean outs. So many because I have one line from the kitchen and another from the bathroom, they "Y" just before the street connection.
It all goes the same place, downhill, so to speak. Use one that's convenient.

Agreed and it's a matter of whichever is in a more convenient place.

I happen to have a clean out alongside the house right where I park my AS. I leave a slinky plumbed in on ramped support setup semi-permanently. Couldn't be easier to dump as it's just a matter of opening a cap on the end of the slinky, hook her up, and let her rip.

As far as legal, don't ask don't tell, play dumb. After all it's the same old ****. If you ask planning and zoning they may not understand what you are talking about. It may or may not be technically illegal, but once they tell you no you are out of excuses.


Don't do a cousin Ernie though, but if you do the cigar does help.

First, I am not a plumber, but maybe one will chime in to prove/disprove my thoughts below.

I was under the impression that the reason for two cleanouts near the house was because one angled towards the house and the other angled towards the city sewer line. This was to make it easier for a plumber to "snake" towards the direction of a clog.

If that's true (and I'd look inside to see if it were so) then it would be best to select the opening that angles away from the house. Although either one should work, especially if you do the gray water final flush.

Thanks for the answers!

I looked it up and found this:

Double Clean Out The most popular type used for modern installation, the double clean out has two shafts which connect to the lateral pipe forming a U shape. The cap closer to your home provides easy access to the city end while the cap closer to the street allows you to maintain the house end of the lateral.

Based on this I guess I should use the cap closer to my home.

Thanks again,
