Sewer clean out cap


I was looking at my sewer clean out and trying to figure out how to remove the cap. It is not a threaded cap and appears to be a slide on. It looks like this http://cammackranchsupply.com/store/...?productid=273 How can I remove this

That's a cap and should not have been used as a clean out access.
Sure it's not glued in place?
Got a picture?

I haven't tried to remove it yet. Wasn't sure how to go about trying to remove it another site the person said to try tapping lightly and see if it will move. Can I add that has the threaded lid? (after the current is removed or cut.)

looks like they forgot to come back and cut it down after the grading was done and put a clean out on it.

That would be my guess too.
Take a hammer and tap upward on the lip of the cap - tap alternate sides- see if it comes of. Often times the cap is just pushed on the pipe and not glued. Replace it with a female adapter and plug

If you don't want to take a chance of damaging anything, put a small board up against the lip of the cap and use the hammer to hit the board. May make it easier to do as well.

Sewer clean out cap


Well I went out to look and see about getting the cap off and as soon as I applied a little force that whole PVC part lifted out. Which I guess means the whole thing was a cap or at least not secured with anything.


Should I just put it back in or is there a way I can put a correct style clean out in? Or would that be better done by a plumber?

Are you saying the riser came out of the ground or the cap came off

Sounds like gasket sewer pipe pipe. Try to get the riser back in as best you can- the dig up the 45 at its base. Post a picture at that time and we'll get you squared away- no need to call a plumber.
