      Orangeburg is made with a 15# felt paper some times called “tar paper” membrane

      It has no tensile and thus crushes very easily.

      It also disintegrates quite easily and shouldn’t ever tried to be repaired.

      Snaking this line is not only taking a chance but once roots do invade and they will continue to open a larger opening thus allowing soil to get into this piping.

      There is a re lining process BUT I do not think it will be very effective on this kind of piping.
