Clogged Sewer Line


Sorry for assuming you were being rude! I meant thousands on replacing a line! lol I know it is only a couple hundred for the camera. It is what we will probably end up having to do, we just really wanted to see if this was a "fluke" or if it is indeed backing up full force again. I do thank you for responding to me. Even if I thought you were being rude

I think most people on here just get frustrated on here when someone asks questions and good answers are given and the person that asks the questions don't follow what was answered. Very frustrating but that's not the answerer's problem all we can do is just give good answers to the best of our ability and the questioner can do with the info as he likes.

If you do have your drain camera'd, I wonder if it would be possible for the camera guy to draw his best guess as to the path of the drain? If it's possible, it will be a tremendous help to you if/when you have to dig where a possible problem might be.

Or maybe a drawing with dimensions is standard procedure? I donno since I never had a drain camera'd. Just throwing this out there in case it helps.

We aren't avoiding a known problem. We don't know what they problem is. We are trying to get to the problem starting with the cheapest route first. I am pretty sure that is how most people handle problems to begin with. No one goes out and buys a new car when all the old one needs is a new wiper blade, right? Geez.
Running a camera IS the least expensive way to properly diagnose and locate the problem.

Then you can make an educated decision on the remedy. Either get multiple bids from quality contractors or fix it yourself.

HRG - With proper equipment, the camera head has a built in sonde which sends off a signal to a locator above ground. It gives you the exact location and depth of the line. It can then be flagged, painted, or triangulated.

adowling - If you do pay to have it video inspected and located; if at all possible, find a company the specifically specializes in inspections and locates. By informing a plumbing company with a backhoe that you'll be getting multiple bids, their locate may not be as "accurate" as you had hoped or paid for.
