Hello, yesterday a plumber had to come out, because we had inches of water in our bathroom, and all drains were clogged. A plumber came out, was going to run the camera to find out where the problem was, but couldn't get camera through. He said there was root intrusion (we have one big tree in back and one big tree in front.) Pipes are in the back. He ran "roof vent cable" to 75', he basically told us it was a temporary fix, at best. Gave us an estimate to replace approx 60' of sewer with sch 40 pvc, and c/o each end, including city permit, for $3485.I thought that was high, until looking on here, maybe its not so much. I was wondering though. If I have my sons do all the digging, do you think that would save us some of the money? If they dug from the main tee, to the back, exposing the piping, so they could just come in and replace it, what do yall think? A little background, the house was built in 1956, in Florida. We moved in in early 70s, and have never replaced the back piping. We did replace the front, but not the back... We are trying to keep the price down as low as possible, as I am disabled and on a fixed income.
No announcement yet.
