In response to Re: Buying a house with roots in sewer lines?
It would depend on what type of pipe it is and whether the roots are found all along its length or just at the house or at the property line. IF it is just at one of those two places then simply digging the connection up and replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise you will eventually have to replace the pipe when the sewer rodding becomes too frequent to justify the cost.

: Hi,

: I am buying my first home, and am looking at two places. One is $10,000 cheaper, but it has had a roots in sewer lines problem and has been rotor-rooted every two years to keep sewers from backing up. So is this a BIG problem? Would we eventually have to dig up and replace the sewer lines? Is this going to cost us a lot in yearly maintenance? Any help would be so very much appreciated!

: Have a great day,
