Our drain in our basement backs up every few months, and we usually have to call in someone to snake the line. Snaking the line will last a few months & then it will back up again.
What can we do to stop this from happening and forking out money every few months for snaking?
Jim was correct in his post.
When the spot is found be prepared to break up the concrete floor near the area. Excavate and then have that section of the line replaced.
If the area is outside the house then the excavation and work will take place there.
It will not be cheap. But constantly doing a temporary fix would drive me crazy and the money will add up over time anyhow.
Good luck with it.
The problem that you're having with your sewer line is the result of routes from outside your house. It is roots getting into your sewer line in closing your lines. That happens a lot in old houses and houses that have trees outside of them (front yard ). You're gonna have to dig and change the old line that connects your house to the main (city sewer line).
