In response to Re: Sewer pipe repair
If you looked at the film, you should have seen that the cast iron pipe is filled with stagtites and stalagmites. These would prevent any grouting device from creating a smooth liner. And the cost of the grouting operation would be much more than digging up the yard and replacing the pipe. Also, since the entire line is the same age, the whole pipe is probably ready to develop those same holes it.

: I've got an old home with an old sewer line. After a couple of backups, I had someone stick a camera down my sewer line to see the problem. It seems that the old cast iron pipe has deteriorated at the bottom in one spot.

: Can't I somehow repair the pipe without digging up my entire yard (the spot is under a brick landscaping wall)?? Can't you stick a camera down there and fill the hole with grout or some other substance?

: Any advice would be appreciated!
