this happened to me last year ... 5gs to fix ... but make sure you call teh city out to inspect the damage before you start work if it's caused by a city owned tree (front yard) ... you can get up to 1500 towards your repairs from themOriginally posted by lucky1
I grew up in an old house and this problem sounds similar to what we dealth with... the water would back up our downstairs bathroom becasue the main line out of the house had roots in it. My step dad used to have to snake the main drain, and they got the people in who can put a saw downt the pipe that cuts the roots. Its a continuous problem, that we never really fixed becasue the only way to do that would be to dig up the front lawn and replace the entire pipe.
don't use draino..... that stuff will eat holes in your pipes, and do nothing to help a big clog.
