So yesterday morning I got a call that someone had a plugged toilet. Got there and it flushed but it was really slow.I got out the auger and thought I'd try it once and possibly get lucky. Nope. Walked around a bit and checked drains. Tub gurgled with lav draining so o brought out the 1500 and had at it.Got in about four feet and could not get through the line. Switched heads and eventually broke through but could not pull back out.So last night, we dug it up with the trencher. This morning, I got back to fix it and there was a 4" ABS cleanout standpipe concreted on top of a 2.5 inch hole in CI. Clay to the city main. Yep, that is where the cable was hung up. And yep, there were tons of roots growing it there.I got them taken care of but not without getting soaked in sewer water. What would people do without us?.
No announcement yet.
Stuck cable tales.
