  • wots the most unusuall thing uve retrived out of a drain / manhole

    just the usual stuff for me

    a boulder out of a man hole
    and a base ball cap
    snaped rods



    face cloth / durex / nappys / grease / baby wipes


    there has got to be some more unusual items retrived from the lines

      Oh yeah, do toilets count in this?



      This is a dead rat that was stuck in the trap way of a toilet.

      This was about 2 months or so ago.

        Condoms, parents said they don't use them and the teenage son is "such a good boy" and is saving himself until he gets married. Hello Mcfly.

        Also, the typical toys from the toilet.

              In Las Vegas I pulled a shopping cart and a bicycle out of a manhole.

                  Mens Jeans

                  I pulled a pair of 46" mens jeans out of a main line running from an apartment to the street. I fought with the pants for 7 + hours.
                  after I camed it my curiosity got the best of me and I wanted to get it out and see what it was.
                  all the lines in the apartment were 4" and the main was 6" old building
                  to this day I have no idea how they got their?
                  maybe a flush for the city pushed them up the line? not likely.
                  they were in the line 65' and the whole run the city line was 100'+

                  the owner was fine with my hourly charge it was a good day.

                    I was working in Greensburg Kansas after the F 5 tornado flattened the whole town last June and pulled all kinds of stuff out. I even pilled a Steam Iron and all kinds of house hold stuff. I go back out there in a week or so to do a few more video inspections.

                    I pulled a cat out of a 4" main line last year Came out in 2 peaces

                        a most dead mongoose. it seems to have entered the line at a C/O with a missing cap and died there. it stunk more than the open septic tank did.

                              I've pulled out broken cables, twenty feet of broken 1 1/4" cable with a dead cat stuck to the auger (at the county dog pound), a large bull frog!, thirty feet of plastic wrap, a bunch of beer cans that were dropped down the vent by the drunk roofers, A squirrel in a toilet and a squirrel in a sewer.
