Clogged main under basement floor

Frustration is setting in and i have no more money to pay anymore plumbers as i have dished out quite a few dollars theses last few months and am stretched out !! I have had the main cleaned out from the main cleanout in the basement twice because of roots ( 60ft. out from house ) , 2 months ago was the last time. Now about a week ago i was under sewage again !!! So back he came with the eel, only this time he only got 71/2 ft. . I was told the main steel line is plugged so bad that it needs replacing only this will cost anywhere from 400-1500$. Not that i'm poor but i don't have it, so out came the sledge and here are some pic's ...Any advice would be greatly appreciated !!

ok thats not really much help. what is the orange line for and what is it made of?

what is the trap for and where does it connect?

personally i would have spent the money for a camera inspection, making sure i watched it being done and recieved a copy of it, and got a location to where the problems in the line were.

Hey plumberman, the orange line is the weeping tile coming from around the house. The problem with a camera inspection is 250$ again i'm not a cheap person but i really cant afford it, i wish i could have a pro do the entire job because it really is worth it!!Here is a quick sketch of the system. Ihope you can see it ok...If not i can redo it ..
Thanks again,hope it helps
