Rooter companies all want to re-line my sewer pipe
Ever since we moved in to our 1964 house 15 years ago we've had to clear the main sewer line of roots about every 3 years. It used to be no hassle, a guy would come & run the router with blades, charge about 100 bucks and go. Now they all start with a hard sell about how we must "re-line" the pipe with epoxy resin. The cost is between $3000 and $5000. Two different router companies gave us the same sales pitch, complete with dire warnings of what would happen if we don't act now. I think we're going to try some of the chemical treatments like RootX before we plunk down that much. Anyone else have their pipe re-lined? We're in California and I've been calling the major router service companies. Maybe I should stick with local independent plumbers who haven't invested big time in the lining equipment?
