Have a customer whose had repeated problems with a 4" line that supports a full bathroom. Always having a stoppage. I snaked and cameraed the line today and discovered at 33 ft chunks of cast iron sticking up. I talked to Greg about a solution and tried his method. Greg said to use a corkscrew head and try to catch the piece to retrieve it. Well, I was able to snag a piece but couldn't move it. Luckily I was able to unthread my snake off the piece. It almost looks like the line is broken from the bottom being pushed in, like a tree root or maybe a utility line underneath the pipe? Any thoughts on what it could be and a solution other than replacement? Customer doesn't have a lot of money.
No announcement yet.
Collapsed line from the bottom??
