Lengthen Sewer Cleanouts?


My cleanouts are just at ground level, in an area that I need to build up to improve drainage away from the foundation.

I don't want them to be buried and hard to find later.

My plan is to lengthen them a little (6-10") with some ABS splices and whatnot. Any reason I should not do this?

I wouldn't use abs because of how weak of a pipe it is. use PVC or preferably the green pipe
