Even after spending several years video inspecting hundreds of sewer lines in North Idaho and Eastern Washington, rest assured… I’ve yet to come across anything like this in the Coeur d’Alene or Spokane areas. Watch this video of a so called “unknown life form” that was found in a North Carolina sewer.

Could there be something like this in your sewer line? As you can see with nearly 9 million hits, the video quickly went viral. Turns out there’s nothing extra terrestrial about it. The blob of gyrating nastiness is actually a clew or grovelling (group) of Tubifex Worms. If you care to learn more about them, you can learn more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tubifex_tubifex

This was a sewer lateral video inspection we did on a foreclosure/REO (bank owned) Property in Sandpoint, ID – Note approximately 80′ run to city main – 1st 40′ have been recently replaced with newer ABS – The last 40′ however, is original Vitrified Clay Pipe under the street with minor offsets and root intrusions.  A proper repair would require major excavation; including, but not limited to:  street cut, encroachment permits, traffic revisions, and soils engineers.  If repairs are made during winter months, additional costs will be incurred due to non-operational asphalt plants.  A cold patch (concrete) would be poured where the asphalt is cut; when the asphalt plants open in the spring, the contractor would come out and replace the concrete patch with new hot asphalt.  The additional costs would be passed on to the consumer (typically the home owner).  In this case, the bank that owns the property will likely pay for the repairs in order to sell the property and satisfy the city of Sandpoint requirements for the Sewer Lateral Improvement Program or (SLIP).
