I'm pretty sure that I have some tree roots that have made there way into
the sewer line headed to the septic tank. When I use a 3/4" wide x 100 foot
flat sewer rod, I can hit something in the line. So I'm thinking that the
best thing to do is have someone come out and use one of those cameras to
view inside the line for roots.

I know they'll give me an estimate, but wondering what others have paid.

Unless you kill the trees pumping out the roots, you will have to do it
again & again & again.
Frankly, if your pipe to the septic tank leaks you should repair the leaks.
The start cutting down trees!
