After putting a camera down from the roof I was advised that I have a belly in the line that must be replaced to the tune of $22,000. The issue has been going on for a long time. I call my plumber who cleans out the drain in the front of house. After the city replaced the pipes in the sewer line due to roots from an Oak tree. 3 days later, the bubbling started in the hallway bath after 3 laundries. Today I called a firm, who detected belly in the PVC pipe. My town home was built in 1981.
Observation: Put camera down waste line from the roof stack. Found line to have a large belly from laundry to front clean out.
Solution: tunnel under slab of home with vacuum truck up to 30'. Repair PVC main line to correct pitch
and code. Treat under home for sub terrain termites, fill back void with ??? sand. Hydro jet ????all waste lines in home. 2 year parts & labor warranty.
I appreciate any feedback and advice.
