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.
In other words, my neighbor’s sewer is all plugged up and the problem starts and ends on my side of the street.
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. You know there are issues when city workers arrive at your door, dig a hole the size of a swimming pool next to your drive way, and leave a backhoe parked in your front yard.
