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.
