I have an urgent issue here that need your help.
Our house is very old, about 60 year old? Each year, it gives us some
trouble, today is the roofing, tomorrow will be the licking. Ad for
sewer, it always have been a small problem until now.
Last week sometime, our basement washroom toilet drain very very slow.
So we hired a plumber to snake through basement sewer. After almost an
hour of trying, he finally got through a little bit (he said)and took
out some tiny pieces of smail roots, he also indicated that the
problem was the main drain underground got cracked by roots. He only
can open a little bit of it by now, but we need to hire him to open up
ground outside of the house and replace the cracked pipe and that will
cost around $1500.
We said that we will think about it and today, we found out that the
drain clogged again. Could any one give us some advices on
1. if it is the problem of the cracked pipe outside of the house or it
is other stuff?
2. What if it is not because of the outside of the house, what if it
is somewhere underground inside the house?
3. And if it is the roots problem, how come it didn't happen in
summer? Roots grow in winter too?
Thanks very much for your advices.
