My problem is the main sewer pipe in the front yard keeps backing up, so I have had it snaked that lasts for about 2 months. I am losing my hair and money trying to solve this problem. Someone told me that my pipe may have sank into the ground some so that is why it is backing up. How do I fix this problem without selling my children to fix it. Please Help.

You need to know exactly what is wrong. If it is roots then you need to cut the teree down. If it is collopsed pipe then you need to dig up and replace.

Every two months is unusual. Are you sure the company is getting it cleared properly?

A video camera would give detailed information. If you have clay pipe then you will have to have it replaced sometime. For many that occurs when you go from once a year to a twice a year cleaning.

What does the drain cleaner say? Where is the clog? In the line or at the main? Do they get mud back on the cable?

Not all drain cleaners are the same. I would try a regular plumber that offers this service before making a replacement decision.
