The camera ABC rental has has a built in distance and depth gauge. I'm pretty sure I know where the collapse is, it's under the walk way. No matter what I work on here it anyways ends with me mixing concrete.

It's almost like pick the toughest spot to work and just start digging because that's where it will be.

Mick sounds like you are having an Apoopcalypse! Mayan heart goes out to you. Not funny I know. I have the same problem but not so urgent. We had Len The Plumber come out with a camera and they tried to sell us a bill of goods to the tune of $11,200. dollars. Maybe we could do a trade I help you, you help me in the spring?

Love a good pun! Not sure how much digging I'll be doing... I'll give the house its colonoscopy but leave the rest to an expert. I'm more of a framer. So come spring, I'll be over with my nail gun .

The main drain line from my house is broken NOTHING, as in nothing, is getting out. Tomorrow morning I get the privilege of going to rent a camera to put down there to see what size backhoe I need.
Dude you need a hand? Give a holler.

Camera up the house's ass showed nothing good! Colapsed terra cotta pipe f*€k!
Turns out I am a digger after all. First part of digging done, I now have a 4' wide by 4' deep, twenty foot hole where my front yard used to be.
Oh yeah! Wanna hear something really fun? The builders saved some time/money by laying the water supply line on top of the drainage pipe. That's an exaggeration it's 4 inches above it.

Pictures when I'm back to my computer, playing with phone now.

That sucks! Mine was some type of multilayer tar pipe which from the outside would look fine but the layers inside were delaminating and collapsing internally. Good luck with the project!
