Yes, that’s what I figured if there’s a leak or something a whole new run would have to be installed. But would this make the plumbing more prone to leak for any reason? The plumbing is right on the ground in the overdig and the wall braces were installed over the pvc.Not ideal. If theres ever an issue the pipe has to be abandoned as your not busting concrete to get to it. The collar is only 6 to 8" thick, is his piping right in the ground in the overdig?
