  • Roots on street side of running curb trap S.F.

    Pulled about 8 ft of roots after curb trap. Great customer .
    In the future is this a city maintenance responsibility ? City tree,
    between curb and street sewer. Of course They may wait a while for the city to respond! Thanks Tool
    I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

    It all depends on the city. Some towns here will take responsibly after the sidewalk, others after the curb, and most will only take responsibility for the stub.

    The ones that will take responsibility of the home owners sewer usually will only repair it if you can not get the line open, or if it plugs up more than 2 to 3 times in a year.

        Ha! good one Tool

        Here, it's the homeowners responsibility to clear the sewer ALL the way out to the main. Even though no one here really owns their front yard. City property goes all the way to your front door.

        BUT..... if a 'licensed plumber' can't clear it the sewer, we file a Sewer Report with the city (done over the phone) Water & Sewer Authority will dig it up and replace it within 24 hours.

          Up date. S.f. sewer dept. policy. Your tree at curb,You fix roots after running trap. City tree they fix. Stand up Guys, good attitudes. 2 shifts to clear sewers. I will have customers call them for free root service in future. They May kick back $175.00 I charged. I know, I just cut Myself out! It's all bread on the water !
