Problem: The sanitary house drain was blocked up all the way up to level with the toilet. The drain is very blocked with tree roots and has been for some time. There is a significant crack in the drain shown in the photo below. How many or to what extent is unknown.The camera head is approx. 35mm thick and was unable to proceed and further. There is a small gap but unsure how far this goes for. The sanitary house drain has unknown amount of tree roots in the 2 main branches of the drain. The back yard has some large trees and possible movement which may have contributed tree root penetration. In It’s current state it might be only a few days before it blocks again. Suggested solution: Create a completely new plumbing connection and abandon the old one (it's old clay pipe) rather than trying to do spot fixes Quote: $5K Any input?
