Sewer pipe -water jetting
So I guess it's that time of the year again...went to do a load of laundry tonight and realized the sewer line had backed up. Usually happens to us about every couple of years when we don't keep up on the rootkill.
Anyway, my usual sewer guys were unavailable tonight so I picked another name out of the phone book to come clean out our sewer. They show up and claim they can't unclog it, that I need to use a water jet to get at it, because it's all sand and dirt. They want $1200, which my husband and I balked at. They said if it didn't work that we wouldn't have to pay anything, because it would mean the pipe had collapsed (of which I was a little skeptical).
Anyway, I said forget it, they found another bit and lo and behold managed to somehow unclog it (although they cautioned it might not be unclogged enough).
Should I have someone else come in and take another look? Just worried it might not be unclogged enough. Or were these guys trying to take me for a ride? And any recommendations for good guys in Nassau/Queens would be appreciated. Thanks!
