I have a 70 year home and a coach house approximately 50 feet apart on the property. In February, we had to hydro-jet the pipes due to a blockage. Our tenants admitted to putting baby wipes down the toilet and baby wipes were found coming out of the clean out near the coach house. Three months after the jettison , the pipes were blocked again this time paper towels were found coming out of the clean out. The second repair was extensive requiring excavation and rerouting of the pipes. My question is could the previous jettison have broken the pipes thus causing further damage?
