My house had a colonoscopy tonight.
Well, what else would you call it when some professional runs a camera down the poop chute looking for unwanted growths. So what if it’s the sewer line and the growths are tree roots?
The good news is that my pipes look pretty good. Almost all the roots were hair sized and just growing through the joints. No damage. So, it looks like I’m not going to have to do the $9,000 replacement, he just got out his other machine and cut out most of the roots. He’ll be coming back later in the week to treat the lines with root killer, and he says that if I kill the roots every 2 years or so I should be fine for years to come.
The only thing I find weird is that the camera has a microphone. I mean, what would you have to listen to down a sewer line?
