Snaked customers kitchen line via cleanout on outside wall of kitchen sink performed camera inspection and noticed customer has orangeburg piping that is beginning to fail. If customer continues to have clogs, then we recommend replacing orangeburg piping to prevent future issues.
Attempted to snake customers laundry line from roof and pulled back large amounts of roots. Followed up with camera inspection of laundry line and right where customers laundry and sink drain go down into the ground there was a large root intrusion that was causing the clog. Was not able to get my camera past this point to see what kind of condition the rest of the line was In. Highly recommend jackhammering flooring and digging down to this section of pipe and performing spot repair to remove roots.

Performed camera inspection of customers sewer line from kitchen cleanout and all drains looked to be In good shape. I do not believe the moisture in the front living room is due to a water or sewer leak. After further inspection I noticed almost the surround of the drop in room had elevated moisture as well as around the perimeter of the back door leading to the garage. I believe moisture is entering from outside of the home and causing the damage. Customer had large portions of stucco that was flaking off where stucco and concrete met.
Arrived and found that the detached apartment had a mainline sewer clog.

Shut the water off to the property and removed the toilet. I was unable to clear the line from the removed toilet. I located the clog using the camera’s locator and completed a spot repair at that location. The spot repair was approximately 3.5ft deep in the rear yard. I discovered the orangeburg line had partially collapsed in a 2 ft section. I removed the collapse line and and replaced it with ABS pipe. A two way clean out was also installed. A camera inspection revealed that the rest of the sewer line had extreme delamination and was close to fully closing or collapsing. I was
