|In response to Re: Orangeburg Pipe - $4000.00????|
Orangeburg pipe is nothing more than paper impregnated with tar that is rooled into pipes. The original wall thickness was about 1/2 inch.
Every time it is cleared with a sewer machine, it removes some of the paper from inside making the wall thinner and more prone to collapsing.
There is no good news here.
Replace immediately now, or within a couple of months. Once it has totally collapsed, you are literally up s*it creek.
Good luck with your project
