|In response to Re: Orangeburg Pipe - $4000.00????|
i would have to see the video tape, he did make one didn't he, to see if the Orangeburg goes all the way to the main in the street. It has been my experience that the pipe from the city main to your property line is usually clay tile, but I had one last week where the Orangeburg went all the way to the main in the customer's back yard. in the areas I am familiar with, it is the customer's responsibility to maintain, and replace, the pipe under the street to the city's main line. The cost depends on the depth and whether there are obstructions that have to be moved or avoided. I hate companies that do that, refund the cost of their service if you have them do the job. It automatically makes any work done by another company that much more expensive, so the first company can overbid by something a little less than the competition's price plus their service and still get the job. It also means that if the customer is going by price, they will go with that company regardless of the quality of work that will be performed.
: I moved into a home here in Vienna, VA on 12/29/03. We had sewage backing up into our toilet on 1/3/04, so I called RotoRooter out and they snaked it ($368.00). There was one obstruction about all the way to the main city line. Everything was fine, until 1/25/04 when it backed up again. Called RotoRooter out and they snaked it for an additional $286.00. Guess I get a discount for repeat business. There were 3 obstructions this time instead of the one obstruction that the first guy snaked. We scheduled a guy to come out with a camera and he came out today.
