    5/8 sectional with a 1" 4 bladed cutter. Don't bend the tip of the cable, rather have a bend in middle of the cable. This works like a vibra pulse where it makes the whole cable jump. IMO it's less invasive then the bend on the end of the cable. Don't forget about the possible damage clause due to existing materials.

    Or just cut it out and replace with pvc.

        I take a picture of it.If there are any blossoms on it I tell them to replace it because I know it has had a lot of drain cleaner poured down it. One that has never seen acid can still be like new. I use a 1/2" cable with a bent spring C cutter on it.

            Ya i have to agree, just replace the galvanized. I usually will use a 81 machine on the line to clear the block, then jet them.

            Most of the galv. lines i see are so packed with grease a cable isnt going to do anything with them.
