My brother and sister-in-law had a major plumbing problem at their house. One of the main lines needed to be replaced. This it the line that goes out to the sewer.
What was strange about it was the line didn't go from the house to the street. It went from the back of the house to a major pipe by their back property line.
This of course meant more pipe and more digging and thus more money. What was remarkable about it was they were able to replace the pipe and get things back up and running in one day. Once it was inspected the trench, where the old pipe was dug up, was covered over and all finished up the next day.
Here are a few photos from the dig.
