    neal: are you referring to the sales pitch for hydro-jetting? Or replacement? Sounds like youre
    suggesting jetting may not be worth doing in your mind?

  • Posted in thread: Second Opinion of Sewer Camera? on 03-28-2014 at 11:10 AM
    The line we're responsible for prior to the city is about 20', but about 60' to the main septic
    system.My hope would be a hydro-jetting + revising our toilet paper and feminine product habits
    would gi...

    Thanks neal; that looks to be the case. I'm thinking of having the line hydro-jetted for the
    sake of clearing the sludge present, then buying a good snake to have on hand as you suggested.

    We know it would likely be prudent to replace in time, and actually its on the list of projects
    to save for, we just werent prepared for the cash outlay at this time (but will if we must).We
    are havin...

    I've had two plumbers camera my sewer now, and gotten two opinions. Finally had a DVD
    made.Plumber 1 suggested that the issue is a "massive belly" in the line (which the DVD does
    not seem to support)....

    Interestingly; I've called probably 10+ plumbers now to get quotes. Of those ten, one looked up
    property lines in the city system and suggested that based on my description, that the
    responsibility li...

    It's in okay shape. It's old corroded cast iron, but no breakages/etc. I think if we're
    excavating (with the full length being 18' and the problematic section being 9'), its probably
    worth doing it al...

    Yeah; I just want to be sure I'm not being taken for a ride. Any job over a thousand or two I
    tend to get at least 3-5 bids. We had a fence done and I had quotes for the same fence range
    from $4800 up...

    First bid came in at $8700. I suggested I handle excavation and he insisted that its a 9' deep
    trench that he needs to handle shoring for safety reasons, thus wont leave that to me, or let
    me sub that...

    Yep; fortunately it's an unfinished basement - so only some of my gym equipment got wet.Waiting
    on some bids; but expecting it to be in the $5000 - 7000 range; which wipes out the bathroom
