Take a 34 family condo complex (former garden apartments), a 6" orange-burg sewer line, without warning 8 flooded basement condos. Speed-rooter 91, K60, jetter, and even General 88 would not get this stoppage open. They came out of the building in 6" CI, drove an orange-burg coupling on the end. Then built a set of concrete footings for the steps right on top of the orange-burg. Seperated the pipe and the roots took over. The footings pushed the pipe down over 6" over the years. Sewer lateral 9 feet deep. Had to cut down a big maple tree just to get a machine in to dig the line. Had a twelve foot wide hole in the parking lot. The day after thanksgiving probably the biggest mess I have seen in my 40 + years. Happy Thanksgiving CA-CHING.
