Plumber hell, should of hired a real welder. Should have been at least a 6-G certified anyway. What about x-rays of the welds? Thats what they used to do to me when something was a potential danger.

Weld x-rays are usually saved for nuclear plants, the process is expensive. There are chemical tests that can be done that are much more reasonable on non lethal welds.

The pipe was over 20 years old. I'll bet it failed because of extreme conditions, like wave action or ground shifting. Marin has a history of accidental sewage spills.
