  • No clean outs sewer location tip

    I use my k3800 hooked to my sonde to locate sewer lines. But when there is not a cleanout I have to pull a toilet. Is there another way to get my sonde through the toilet with out pulling it?

    no
    This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

      Get a flushable sonde or go through the vent.
      Buy cheap, buy twice.

        i've used flushable sondes in the past and sometimes they don't pull back as the string will snag and break.

        the vent would be the easiest if you use a fiberglass push rod.

        there are no cleanouts anywhere on the property? even a 2'' sink c/o?

          CORRECT! No cleanout anywhere.

          I see this on many older homes in Phoenix. If they do have clean outs they were added after the fact.

                The guy wants to add a cleanout. The house currently does not have one clean out.
