Well, I think you can see where this is going. There were poop jokes ALL. OVER. THE. PLACE. for a good month over here. But now we have a brand spanking new sewer made out of NOT Orangeburg so we are good to go.
Our initial bid to do the sewer was hella-expensive and had us almost walking away from the whole deal, but in the end we were able to replace the entire sewer without having to dig up our whole yard using a technique called line bursting. And without having to dig up the street using a cure in place liner. This saved us money AND our yard. If you are local and have a shitty sewer (see?, it's so hard to resist), I highly recommend Howard at Marv's Backhoe Service (not sponsored, FYI). I also highly recommend a sewer inspection if you're buying an older home with an older sewer.
