My friend is really frustrated right now.
His house plumbing backed up and is unable to find the source.
They called a plumber out and he ran 150 feet of snake and nothing.
He suggested that it was a city problem and he should call them.
He called the city and they came out only to tell him that everything was fine and that the problem was in his house.
He calls another plumber and he was also unable to find anything after snaking several times.
The last guy suggested that perhaps he has a broken pipe in the ground.
My friend has a very large tree next to his house and the plumber suggested that maybe a root has damaged some piping.
The water trickles away VERY slowly.
Any suggestions on what he should do next?
Another plumber quoted him $1500 to dig up the place and look for the problem.
Is this all he can do now? Or is there other options?
