    Need recommendations for tree cutting and septic aerator line clog / replacement.

    I have a tree next to my driveway that's grown rather large and the branches are scraping my roof. They're also hitting the power/cable/phone lines coming from the street and I worry a storm might break a branch and knock the lines down or damage my roof. Don't want the tree cut completely down but definitely would like someone professional to come out and cut off a good bit of the limbs and dispose of them.

    Also, the aerator was replaced before moving into the house but burned up after a few years. I fooled with it and found that the pvc pipe between the aerator and the septic tank is clogged. I bought a plumbing snake and tried to clear it myself but couldn't and just left it alone. Well it's been a year and I have to stop ignoring it so looking to get someone out to unclog the pipe and replace the aerator. I still have the old one taken apart but I doubt it can be repaired.

    Figure these would be good uses of my trump check so please give me some recommendations so I can get these jobs taken care of!

    The aerator line should just be 3/4 pvc
    If you can pump some water thru it ,you should be able to clear it or if it's broken it'll at least show you where the line is broken.
    Do or do not
    There is no try !

    You can rent a motorized snake that cuts roots up in the pipes. I canít think of the correct name for the machine. I had to use to at my house a few months ago.

    Most aerators have few moving parts. A couple of magnets and diaphragms. There are repair kits for most available online.

    Price was comparable to other's bids I had received. I had two large water oaks removed 2 years ago. Biggz took both out (one was double trunk), ground stumps, mulched limbs and leaves and were finished before lunch.

    Very impressed with the service I received.

    Thanks, I contacted him via email and he directed me to his website for info. So I emailed him back letting him know this video looks to be the issue I'm having and will see what he says.

    I emailed him as well but he said he does not service St. Tammany Parish.

All it is a a PVC T shaped line with hole drilled in it. We cleaned it out and drill the hole bigger to a 1/4" to get more air. If I remember right he charge me $150.00 for the pump down and line repair.
