I had a plumber here today that says I have to have my main line dug up &
replaced. He tried for over an hour to use the roto-rooter thing, and then
charged me nothing because he couldn't clear it.
So I believe him.
BUT--his company's estimate for digging this up (entails ruining my driveway
and does NOT include the cost of replacing it!) was $6200!!!!!
I'm obviously going to call around first thing in the morning. This must be
done, I can't use the plumbing at all!
Has anyone lived through this nightmare before? Have you any advice for me?
I've always worried that this was a scam perpetrated by plumbers but am less
doubtful in my case as I've had plumbing problems for some time. The house
is old (over 100 years) and the cast iron pipes are falling apart.
What did it cost you?
Who do I call to replace my asphalt driveway (sob)? How much might that
cost? It's about 25 feet long, one car width.
