I'm trying to help my mom with a plumbing/tree problem and not sure where to start. Her neighbor has 2 or 3 pine trees growing along the property line, right next to where the sewer pipe presumably runs to the drain that is located in front of the neighbor's property. Based on the fact that the driveway slabs have shifted and cracked, the sewer line has probably been shredded by the tree's roots as well. The toilet doesn't flush very well and is constantly backing up. She has a lot of issues, this being one of them, with the trees and is in a disagreement with the neighbors about them. They like them and don't want to remove them but they are affecting my mom's property and ability to flush the toilet. I need to help her but I'm not sure how to approach it. I think I need someone to come video the line and find out what's going on in there, right? If the thing is shredded like I think it is, how much does a replacement cost usually? Should we repair and then deal with the tree issue or get the trees removed before repairing? This is in Redondo Beach. And where does one enter the sewer line to take video? Is at the drain/connection to the main sewer or from the house/property? I need help to understand what can of worms I'm about to get into! Help me RIDGID forum posters, you are my only hope!
