  • Jetting job freak out...lol

    I was jetting a line today that I have to do a crawl space repair on Monday. The 4" main line has back grade from age as it`s at the vent stack and building drain combo joint. The line has over 4" of back grade in the last 4` right at the vent stack.

    So I get out my jetter truck to suck all the crap n stuff out of the line so I can cut it open and do the repair. Well while jetting I hit a hard spot and bounce the nozzle off it a few times then the line starts to pull in again. I jet another 20` then I sprung a leak some where in my truck I thought as I`m getting wet from a fine mist. I run up to the truck to shut things down and it stops before I do anything. I think WTF??? So I go back to the CO and push another foot. Back to a fine mist coming from some where ???? I look up and I cant see where this mist is coming from. I walk around the house and I see water running down the roof. I walk out in the yard so I can see the vent stack and there it is.... The nozzle is sticking out of the vent stack about 4 feet....lol... I didn't know my little jetter could go up a vent stack that easily.

    LOL, it's raining and the sun is out.

    Well atleast the vent got a good jet and the roof was washed clean.

    I did that once, on a kitchen sink, kept going up the vent and it was really upsetting me, so when I thought it was down, I actually didn't care anymore and kept pushing, I look out the window and stretch, I see the cable over the roof and hanging in the front year bushes

    Least to say,t he customer got a new santee and a very pretty cleanout.


    By the way, nice web site All Clear, I like that drum machine.

      I hate it when my top snake goes up the vent while trying to clear a kitchen sink clog. I always go outside after running 15` or so to see if I`m on the roof....lol... I had one where I cleaned the guttering...rotflmao I told the home owner "that was a freebie on the guttering cleaning". Anymore if it`s not raining or snowing I just go to the vent stack first and save the trouble.

      thanks on the web site, It`s not done but it`s up and running for now. I wish I had time to finish it but then I`d be in the shop and not out paying the bills.
      I looked at yours a while back and it`s pretty nice. Some day I`ll finish mine

            That is funny. I worked with a tech who ran his 300 cable machine thru a closet bend went across, broke the other toilet, grabbed the shower curtain and he pulled the curtain all the way back thru the closet bend he was working on. His response "how did that get down there?"

            All clear and West Coast plumber - nice websites. I don't get the audio with the video though WCP.

              when i was an apprentice my journeyman was snaking through a closet bend in a downstairs apartment.his cable got stuck. when someone came and knocked on the door freaking out. we followed her upstairs and across the hall went in to her bathroom the snake had busted through the front of the toilet and grabbed one of her daughters dolls by the hair and everytime he tried to pull the snake back the doll would bang its head against the toilet. she was home alone and heard a noise. could you imagine going into your bathroom and seeing a demon doll banging its head against your toilet. after it was all said and done we had a good laugh with it.
