sewer lines

Hi all,

Well, we knew it would have to be done sometime, and now the time has come. We need to replace the sewer lines, to the city's lines in the street.

Our lines run under the foundation of the house in front of us so we are looking at putting in a liner or the really cool thing that crunches up the old line and pulls a new line in behind it.

Any one have any experience/opinions?

Thanks so much!

RE: sewer lines

Roto Rooter replaced our old clay pipe using the pipe bursting technique and I'm pleased with the process and results. They put in about 70' for about $4,500, (I'm sure price varies depending on region), dug a hole at the house and another at the connection point with the city pipe, each about 4' x 4'. The connection point was about 7 feet deep. It took a day.
