    Crack in 4" sewer line

    Long time lurker, first time poster. I discovered roots in our sewer main to the street during a camera inspection. The roots are small, and not really causing a problem at this time. Using a locator and wanting to avoid future problems, I dug up the area to find where the roots enter the...

    Sewer line. Needing advice!

    Hello, New to this forum so I'm hoping I'm posting in the right area. This past weekend our sewer pipe in our basement began to leak.

    Cleaning the roots from the roof of a sewer pipe.

    I'm having problems with root intrusion into a sewer pipe. A few years back a clean out was installed, and I realize now it wasn't sealed properly, because the roots are growing in right at the joint of the clean out and the sewer line. I can see the root hairs from the clean out, and I've been...
