There is a pipe that runs from my neighbor’s home, under the street, and twenty feet below my sidewalk. Unfortunately, the pipe isn’t completely functional at this time and this has a certain impact on those around.

Plumbing is NEVER a fun topic. Unless you work for Roto-Rooter, there is nothing appealing about playing in the sewer. I certainly don’t enjoy it. I have a pipe wrench and can cut PVC with the best of them but this problem is bigger than any plunger.
