    Re: An issue with snaking Need advise

    cut or drill out the end of line plug. you're problem is with hardened buildup. combination of the grout/ rust/ debris. with the plug off, you have a straight shot at chopping the stuff out with a pipe and shop vac.

    don't let too much debris fall into the main as it too will collect and need flushing out.

    gal pipe and durham fittings are prone to rust buildup and cholesterol.

      Welcome to the forum Newpl.

      3 years as an apprentice?

      What are your likes and disslikes about your new trade venture.

      What type of install projects are you working on.
      I ask this because it is obvious that your Journeyman has not been teaching you the fine art of drain cleaning.

      So you are in construction?

      I sure hope to hear from you soon.

            I call BS on him being an apprentice. Just look at the fernco 45.

            If he is an apprentice he should know that is not an approved fitting.

                Newpl the fact is you probably spent more on that rubber fitting than a PVC 45 º elbow would of cost you. And since you spent the extra money on that fitting its not to code.

                Personally I would of cut the pipe out of the fitting threads and used a male adapter down low and up at the 45º I would of used a shielded fernco. Also while I was at it I would of installed a clean out tee on the vertical pipe.
