Exposed Waste Pipe In Yard

It's not often while doing home inspections you will come across an exposed waste drain line like this. This one actually leads to a septic tank and wasn't installed properly during construction.

These drain lines are hard to move, so the best solution would be just to throw some more dirt over it and make sure it is marked so no one can damage it with a pick or shovel.

Another solution would be to throw some more dirt or sand on top of the pipe and pour a small concrete slab approximately 1 foot wide and about 2 foot long. You could always write in the concrete the words "drain line".

Make sure the concrete is not touching the plastic drain line. You can always wrap the drain line and cardboard and then pour the concrete around it.

Sometimes simple solutions can be very effective for inexpensive home repairs.
