I think if you walk around your neighborhood, you may see these cleanout pipes on other houses because they are supposed to be above ground. That may give you an idea of where your pipe is located. Mine is under a bush.

You might have several along the sides of your home and one between the house and the sewer. Other than asking for the blueprint from the construction office you could look at similar homes under construction and hope that your layout is similar to theirs.

Go outside where you think it would be and have someone inside with your cell phone. Have them call your phone with another phone and while it's ringing have them flush it down the toilet. You should be able to hear it ringing as it sails by..........Sorry, I couldn't resist it.

You forgot to tie a string on the phone so you can pull it out.

I have a Gardenia. My drain cover was cover by grass. It was about four feet from the right side corner. It took some time but I used a screw driver and kept punching the ground until I found the clean out. Good luck

On my Patio Villa, the house is elevated one foot above the street behind a low brick wall surrounding trees, behind street level front yard. Just behind the wall in front of the picket fence, the access cover is buried down at street level. Another access appears to be up next to the driveway by the garage door. Discovered when grinding a stump from an extra unwanted tree in front of the fence. A similar cover was observed on another villa on another street, but not seen on all the houses there. The Warranty Dept suggested the Water Dept has the most information on these structures. They advised the cover noted was for the sewer.

What does street side mean? Mine is on front garage side (Gardenia). Could there be more than one ie waste water vs septic?
