    Re: Overhead drain contraption

    Well, being a temporary cross-connection used by a licensed plumber, the likelyhood of potable water contamination is extremely small. I know, I know, still no excuse, still against code. Everyone who has ever used a blow-bag has violated this rule. Yet again with modern vacuum breakers on hose bibbs, the chance of contaminating the water system using this contraption is probably less than getting hit by lightning.

      Re: Overhead drain contraption

      twice, this is a spin off of the setup i use for overhead jetting.

      i divert all my blow back into a 45 gallon rolling trash can. i use 2'' pipe with 2'' pvc electrical 45 sweeps. they are much nicer than a 2'' dwv 45 and already have a built in coupling. the jetter hose likes them better too.
      i have a selection with 2''. 3'' and 4'' along with asst. drop pieces to allow for ceiling height.

      my rolling can has a 2'' drain valve to allow for pumping back into the waste and trapping the solids.

      no pictures to post but it's been in use a good 7 years.

      they even have a tool tray for this can and it holds my adapters and nut driver and 460 channelocks.

      no water hose ever connected to the waste. even the jetter requires back flow protection.

      very little clean up as the poop ends up in the bucket and gets pumped back in.

          As I recall that was what you wanted to see the Jet-Vac demo at the Roundup for wasn't it?

            can't sneak anything past you

            i would rather pump the sludge/ water back with the jetter than an electric pump as i already have the jetter out and running.

            that's why i lifted it as high as i could to test the head pressure

            you would make a great expert witness

              lets see, 15 years of jetting vrs. 1 year or so.

              i would hope i have it figured out.

              no need for pictures. it's similar to your tinker toy set up but much quicker and cleaner.

                So the question is, did you buy a Jet-Vac yet?

                  I don't know which jetter either of you own but as far as jetters go I would have to say jrsaltz gets the win for the killer jetter.

                        Lets see how you did the back flow protection on your jetter.

                            Yes but as designed the contaminated water has the ability to run back down the hose via gravity (if a bunch of stuff goes wrong). Consider instead had it been designed to feed water from above the "tool" with a 1" air break it still would have worked and been safe at the same time.
