Default T Rex ate our tree. :(

Oh gosh it was back here again and tore up the yard. And found that a tree to be the cause of the plumbing problem.
Ripped it right out of the ground, and dug a WWI trench doing it across the yard. Walkway is toast, I guess we
have to start all over again back there.

A flush beats a full house any day.

It looks like bombers went over back there. Sewer works great now. But hire an oil field contractor. They dang sure will get it done.
But they will destroy anything in the way. Thank goodness our mulberry tree survived, it wasn't the culprit.

You're not supposed to flush joints down the pipes..... put them in an old pipe that you can light.....

Oh my, this went downhill, or was it "up in smoke"?

We have tree roots seeking moisture in the clay tile we have here.

It was just a big tree root that broke open the line. Trees dead now but they had to dig up everything to get to it.
It makes me sick to look out there now it's a mess. The grass is just big mud puddles now.

I suppose it had to get worse before it gets better, it's going to be ok.
