That deep you're going to want to make a wider hole and slip some sheets of plywood in to shore it up. You don't want to get buried alive. Thanks for the advice and depending on the quotes I get I may or may not dig it myself. Where I am stuck is I posted this on a couple of different forums and have different opinions on what people are seeing on the video. One guy is claiming that there is no way cast iron pipe partially collapses. So I have no idea what he is seeing on the video at that 1:18 mark that would account for the narrowing. Another guy suggested that 1:18 mark on the video is a 45 degree bend which I am not so sure about. He thinks the pipes look good and clean, but there is obviously a problem. I dln't know what my next step is. Do I need to get a plumber to come with another camera to diagnose it? What else could it be that is clogging it other than a collapsed pipe?
is what I'm seeing in 1st video at 1:15 @ -35 ft the same as what I see in the 2nd video after it was jetted? As the camera was backing out in 1st video, lit looked like you had water flowing and it even went under water for a few feet before you got to problem. Look at this thread. similar problem but water flow is reversed. http://www.plumbingforums.com/forum/...ead.php?t=7333 the 2 sections of pipe shifted with the down stream section lower than the upstream pipe.
