On August 22, 2013, we had our sewer lateral repaired after suffering a total blockage due to tree root intrusion by a city parkway tree planted directly over our sewer line. This video shows an interior camera view of the repaired pipe, before and after the repair. The work was performed by Pro Serve Plumbing. They worked under floodlights until Midnight to get us reconnected. The repair consisted of shooting an epoxy-glass liner into the existing damaged clay sewer line that extended from our property line, under the street, to the City main. From there to the house, we already had seamless ABS plastic pipe. Portions of that pipe were also replaced and re-graded for better slope to enhance gravity flow. The end result is a totally seamless sewer run. With no joints of seams, tree roots will not be able to sense the water in the pipe, so root intrusion should no longer pose a problem. We are still going to seek permission from the City to remove the tree, since the pipe could still suffer mechanical damage from the tree if it were to blow-over in high winds.
