    Craziest thing you removed from a drain

    After listening to the critter thread LOL...(Which was hilarious i might add)
    This brought back memories for me

    My Question to you...What was the craziest, weirdest, funniest thing you have ever removed from a drain???

    My craziest was a finger i removed from a drain line that was clogging the line in a prison

    Weirdest was a personal ID badge that was lodged in a line 50ft away

    and funniest was, i was water jetting an 8in Terra Cotta storm line and when i got right near the end of the discharge i blew out a groundhog from the line that scared the Hell out of me..LOL...it flew about 10ft past me... (for those animal rights members, the groundhog got up and walked away)..

    PS thought this would be a good 400th post

    I have removed mens Underwear from several mainlines, and I have once removed a dog bone with a toilet auger, ironically it was a chocolate lab that put said bone in there.

    run it more than once or come back and run it again.

    Had a manhole 12ft deep full to the top overflowing. I was running a 1065 at the time and used a 10' section of 2" with a 45 at the end.

    Loud noises when I broke that main line open, couldn't pull back through the 2" because of what I grabbed. Those skull fragments were attached to locks of hair.


    What makes this above situation credible?

    Bad BAD ***** neighbhorhood with a history in the area of them killing thier own. We were advised to bring protection (guns) when working over in the bad parts of Cincinnati urban, blighted neighborhoods.
    I'm at a loss for words. Sick... Just sick

    Nothing like human parts... packrat carcass and nest once... cell phone was a good one... my favorite though was I had pulled a toilet and snaked the line open, but something just didn't feel right. Put the camera down and sure enough about 20' in was an object... something yellow. I'm bumping it to see if it moves and it turns over and this big grinning face with a toungue hanging out looms up in my screen.... pluto rides around on my dash to this day.
