Sewer Line Plug (HELP)
Posted by Gil Garduno on January 20, 19100 at 11:34:50:

I've got a major clog somewhere in my sewer line. I removed the cleanout caps, and there was water coming out through both risers.
This should mean that the clog is between the cleanout and the main sewer system. (Right?) But I tried
to snake the clog and was unable to get the snake in very far. The cleanouts are about 25 feet down the driveway
and about 8 feet from the main sewer line.

My first question is: Am I correct that the cleanout nearest to the street is the one facing the house, and that
the cleanout nearest to my house heads toward the main sewer system and that the clog is between the cleanout and
the public main?

My second question is: This is a brand spanking new house (Less than a month old) I have not had problems
before this. Is it conceivable that I could get such a major clog so close to the main with no possibility for roots, etc, in my sewer
line?
there is a major plumbing problem
