Mainly Mattias Posted July 22, 2013 Share Posted July 22, 2013 Ok, so we've been getting the sewer line augered every couple of years ($200 each time) to get rid of roots and have been told multiple times that the pipe should be replaced. The most recent augering guy quoted $2k for replacing the broken section of pipe (not the entire line from pvc to city connection - just a few feet!). This dude seems a bit dodgy and we've already dug where he wants to replace and the pvc looks intact with no root penetration. The pvc takes and angle down under the walkway towards the retaining wall. I'm expecting that the $2k job would double since he'd have to tear down and replace a concrete retaining wall where the broken pipe actually is.. Anyway, we sent him on his way after looking on the camera as to where the roots were. Are there other alternatives to full out digging and replacing or continuous augering? Has anyone had to deal with this before? Can anyone tell me about the epoxy pipe relining, for example? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
