Replacing a drain line - Need advice
Posted by Charles F. Jones on February 01, 19100 at 13:35:42:
A plumbing service has informed me the drain line from my back two bathrooms is broken. He ran a snake through the vent stack and said about 5 to 8 feet after making the 45 degree turn he hit mud. He suggested replacing the entire pipe from the house to the city's "Y" tie in. Estimated cost is $3000.00. My wife and I are expecting a new baby in a few months and can't afford that right now. Three questions: Can I do this job myself? Can I dig up the line and then have a plumber come in and do the replacement? If the answer to number two is yes, then how much is a reasonable charge for replacing a line that at most is 35 yards from the city line? Any and all replies are greatly appreciated.
