          Ahh congrats DM.

          How much was that setup, 12 grand?



          I can't say I'll ever own one, but I'd say that there were times in my days working for others that I wished we'd had one, especially the McDonalds we did in Ohio that took time to clean by grease blading. Boss was too cheap to buy a jetter, he thought that there was more money in the repeated drain calls.

          That's true, but the correct way was jetting.

            Dunbar, in the area of what you said was the price. Plus got a nozzle package for it that included the Warthog. Funny you say McDonalds, Had to go out to one last night, whole place was flooding out. Jetted it and was out in 45 mins.

            Only downfall to the trailer so far for me is this weather. You have to blow the pump dry, and antifreeze the tank and lines. We also just got 6inches of snowfall last night so the trailer staying in the garage for the day

              True story

              I tell no lies.


              There's one particular McDonald's I was called out to, the beverage dispenser's indirect drain was backing up.

              No big deal, right? Sure!

              Grabbed my 100 and went to town on this 2" line, figuring it's just jelly inside the pipe from all the syrup, like most of them. NOT!

              I get pissed at the situation, grab a blow-up sack and put it inside the 2" pipe sticking 4" out of the tiled floor at the machine, thinking I'll just jet it using water pressure and get out before the dinner rush.


              There was absolutely no indication this was main drain problem, ever.

              I turned that water on, went to the truck to get another tool and came back, there was a massive cesspool of what looked just like human diarrhea under the front counter heading under to the grill. Oh man it was horrible, the smell instantly permeated the air and the women there were in shock.


              I instantly tell them that "we'll be back at 10" after the store closes. As soon as I turned the water off, the waste returned to the drain. Couldn't clean it right there and then because they wouldn't let us, only small jobs only during business hours.


              That McDonalds on Cross County Highway has a main line that lays nearly flat for 140' and no way to correct it.

              I had to go out there and clean that drain with my 1065 with extra cables with the largest grease blade that would fit through the wye; no cleanouts closer to the road where the main was and this cleanout was in the middle of the building. SUCKED

              2.5 hours later, water running the whole time I was cleaning, water would roll in and out of that drain like a super slow wave going back and forth on a beach.

              We were forced to take turns on this drain cleaning call because none of us liked to do it because it was so time consuming. The use of the drain cleaning machine was definitely the wrong application, jetter all the way.

              He just didn't want to buy one because he made more money rodding it. Hell they didn't know any better....mcdonalds that is.

              These memories of mine will have me back in therapy if I'm not careful. I don't miss any of these recollections of my earlier years.
