Seller did not properly fix problem in real estate addendum

I just purchased a home, during the home inspection a problem was found with the plumbing (water backed up in the shower and toilet). We wrote an addendum to the purchase agreement that a certified plumber was to evaluate and repair the problem before closing. The person hired did plumbing work but was not a certified plumber, did not find the root cause of the problem, and I have just had to pay $2000 to have the mainline excavated in our front yard to remove 2 gallons of rock. This was the cause of the original problem, the problem was never solved, and seller is refusing to pay. Who is responsible for this debt?
