    If only they had a k-60, then all this could have been avoided.

    there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

      Unfortunately, the undiscovered race of sewer people discovered lighting a match at the wrong time. It is unlikely evidence of their existence will ever be seen.........

            It looks like it could be storm water which is really more likely than sewage.

                    Ok.. so the big question. How did that much pressure build up and explode all at one time. And come back for a second explosion. I would guess it has to do with flooding but seems weird with an open path for release at any time that it came back and exploded bigger the second time.

                      josh, this happens all the time on a small, small scale with drain cleaning

                      it happens when when you have a stoppage and then it clears downstream.

                      usually when i have a main line stoppage, and i clear it, a surge of waste water starts to flow downstream. if the line blocks downstream, which is very common with roots that break off and plug the next section, the flow will come to quick stop. this will create a water hammer affect. thus backing up the sudden surge of waste water. sure it's not a geyser, but then again i'm not clearing manholes with my k-60 either

                        The hell you say! Not cleaning manholes with your K-60??

                        Im sure you have tried though

                        I see a clog like that in the street, i go the opposite direction and call the City.

                        I seen one like this once, it was on a forced main from a lift station...Talk about a suprise getting ready to lift the lid and BOOM!!! wasnt near as bad as the video, but still enough to scare the heck out of me

                          this was posted on a guitar forum i'm on a while back. it's storm water not sewage. i saw this (not to that extent) in north texas years ago. the rushing water displace the air and the lids kust sorta flip. there was another video of covers "dancing" to music. i'll see if i can find it.
