I may wait until October when the cooler weather arrives, after all,l it's been that way for better than 5 years a couple of months should make little difference. A 60' trench is gonna take some work with a pick and shovel. A shove and pickle. Sticking tongue out

That sounds like a very wise idea. No reason to be shoving that pickle around in the heat. Rolling on the floor laughing

That is a very good idea! Is that also the end of the rainy season for you?

I love the way the plants have such an explosion of growth during the rainy season!

The situation with the drains is much worse than I thought, the main sewer drains were also damaged during the quake and subsequent aftershocks of five years ago, a real live DIY job to get my teeth into.

That depends on how expensive pain relievers are and how many you will need from start to finish of such a labor intensive job.

I don't use painkillers, as a rule, the trick is to know your body's limits and when to call it a day.
Work as ergonomically as possible, if you're small use a small shovel and so on. Even a mountain can be leveled one chip at a time.

I hope that it all goes quickly for you. My brother dug his out by hand and replaced the pipe in one day, but waiting on the inspector took a lot longer than that and he had to build fencing around the ditch that he'd dug to keep pets and people from falling into it as it ended right next to the sidewalk. He had to retrieve his dogs many times over the week or so that he waited for the inspector.

Actually, it's all done, pressure tested and passed. Fortunately, there's a 5" wall between the drains and the road. Just got the mess to clear up now, mud, mud, glorious mud.

To be fair all the drains and pipes were exposed before diagnoses of the problem and so it was just a matter of replacement. I still have the trench to fill. Sticking tongue out

Jon, do you have enough fill for the trench or will you have to haul it in?

The same pile that I dug out, but not in 98 degrees it'll just have to wait. Ah! The dog days of summer.
