When we dug this up, the roots on the outside of the pipe were not even visible! I cut off the top of the clay pipe and this is what we found!
This 100+ year old house had about a 140 foot clay tile sewer with root intrusion, offset fittings, and a break before the tap.
The drain left the house in their backyard, continued into a neighbors yard and under the neighbors garage to get to the alley.
They now have a seamless new 4″ sewer pipe from the house all the way to the alley with minimal excavation required!
