    Them are the rod jobs I live for. I love to get in there and get the line open with the two inch cutter, then shoot the camera down the line and show them all the joints that have the heavy roots coming in. Then I go in with the three and four inch blades. Then I run the camera down again and show them how well I cleaned the line. When they see the before and after pics they are very impressed with the job they where given.

    Last time I had roots like that was in Brookfield, and Lagrange Highlands area.

        you guys are allowed clay under the house

        for us it has to be a minimum of 2' beyond the outside of the structure.

        of course when someone does an addition and are too lazy to replace the line, it's been known to be under the house.

              Rick, Chicago is an OLD city. Clay was allowed underground inside the house in many towns up through the 50's and 60's.

              Nearly every house in the town where my shop is located is 6" tile from the saddle all the way to the house, under the footing, under the concrete floor the length of the house, then back under the footing to the catch basin (varies slightly depending on the layout of the house).

              Only the really savvy towns required cast iron back in the bungalow boom.

              City of Chicago code says it has to be cast iron under the house now. State of IL code allows schedule 40 PVC.

              I've heard stories of Orangeburg Pipe under basement floor in a couple towns. Never seen that for myself though (thank the lord!)
