Recently in NYC a homeowner was required to perform a video inspection on her sewer line after experiencing sewage backing up in her basement. She was told by one plumber that the sewer line had a minor clog and could be cleared, $400 and one day later, she was back to square one.
After reviewing the sewer video inspection, it was clear that her existing clay sewer line must be replaced. This includes new 6″ cast iron pipe, from the house, to the city sewer “spur connection” in the roadway.
