Pesphoto; A serious suggestion; When the plumber takes that wye out have a company there to run a camera down that pipe! Find out NOW what other conditions you are dealing with. For all you know everything could be fine underground but to me it sure as Heck would be worth it to know for sure.
If they find real problems like it or not Deal with it NOW, no matter the cost at this point cause if you wait for total failure the cost will skyrocket.
Just my humble opinion.

How would i find such a company? Also, Im not sure exactly what day he is coming to fix this. He is calling day of this week since he is so busy and is sqeezing me in the schedule. Do plumbers ever do this to check out the pipe?

Some plumbers do tho equipment is quite expensive. I would think a trip to the Yellow Pages would be ez and quik. This can be done independant of the plumber. I was only thinkin since plumber is "there" now is time to find out if it will be easier in long run to fix present problem or just put that money into replacement instead if the situation looks really bleak. NOT being a downer here just practical. If the entire system is compromised then whatever you do to fix this problem will only have to be ripped out to do the rest.
Other thought is to call building dept in your town and ask them for a person who can snake a camera into the drain, and you can explain why since this will require a permit to replace the line if needed. They normally know who those folks are, plus if they give ya a person you know you can trust them cause if they screwup you did get them thru the town and the town dont play well with folks that screwup :}:}:}

pesphoto---

if you live in Canada you could always call Mike Holmes!! I love that guy. I once saw them pull a new sewer main through the old existing sewer main pipe so no diggin was required. They took a bullet shaped metal cap and fixed it to the end of the new pipe, attached a hook and chain to the loop on the tip of the bullet shaped piece and cranked on the chain to pull the whole new pipe right through the old one and hooked it right up to the sewer connection under the street.....amazing!

Hi, Im in the US. But I read about someone doing just that in this area.
Something to look at for sure if I need to go that route.

What about something like this:

Yup, I saw the video stuff. Im going to call my plumber first thing Tues. am to discuss to see if he offers this type of service. If not, I am going to give Roto Rooter a call. Dont want to piss off my regular plumber, so I'll talk to him first, but I gotta do what I gotta do.

If they use video inspection equipment you should be able to get a copy of the tape. The sewer line should make a transition from cast Iron in the house to any of the following materials that hold up better than cast Iron in the ground, asbestos cement, clay, concrete pipe, orangeberg, 3034 pvc, or sch.40 abs.

Pipe relining will only do you justice if there are no bellys in the line or offsets in the joints. You will basicly have the same bellys or whatever in your new lining to. Sounds like you need a company who is full service.

Plumber is here and currently replacing the leaky part. So far so good. Pipe is cut off and he is melting the okum as I write. They are going to snake out the sewer line for me as well.
