Mom called and said the sewer line was backing up again. Time to clean out the tree roots.
The plumber came and cleaned out the line and sent me an estimate to replace it with PVC.
Do you know how much replacing a sewer line in the city will cost me? $10,068.
I don’t have $10,068! Apparently, at least half or more is to pay the city to replace the sidewalk and curb. I have no recourse, they will not allow me to try to bid the project out. Ugh!
Frankly, I don’t want to spent ten grand on a house I don’t live in and can’t sell without a loss of at least 30 grand. I am feeling a little stuck at the moment. For now, I will continue to clean the tree roots until I no longer can.
I’ll deal with it later.
