We live in a 99 year old Victorian house in Brooklyn, NY.
We have been having basement floods because of tree roots in our sewer pipes. The problem is getting worse and one of the companies who came in suggested a sewer pipe liner saying that if we don't do something soon we would have to dig up the front yard to replace the sewer pipe.
Would this work? I vaguely remember hearing that it is not very effective since it decreases the size of the sewer pipe.
Does anyone know of any other solution?
Are there any ways to seal of repair a sewer pipe from the inside?
