    Re: roof vent or pull toilet

    up here we don't go on the roof. too slippery.

    i can't speak for the rest of the canucks, but the Workers Comp. Board requires anybody on a roof must wear a "fall protection harness". these can cause their own problems.

          Plumbers are not roofers and dont belong on roofs.

            i was a self employed roofer for years. 1960's & 1970"s. made great money, which is why i was there. but i never saw, used or left any plumbing tools up there. i,m not afraid of heights. i am known to crawl up and down ropes. but would be very concerned about roof liability, as in leeks. even ones that were there before i got there. if i walk on it, i own it. your call. breid

                            Some older ELJER toilets used to break(knock the back out) every time I tried to use a general drop head auger on them after 2 breaks, I used a plunger 1ST then regular bulb head auger __if toilet auger did not work ,i pulled it up

                            roofs ok when I had too, only 1 story low flat with stack on same side my ladder was on and I had experienced helper with me,as for sinks ,same thing but only if my 50' 1/4'' little gorlitz would not reach stoppage

                              Why must everything be so black and white?

                              I think its better to be open-minded than to be one-sided.

                              I use whatever tool and means is necessary to do the job. I prefer to do every sewer from an outside cleanout....BUT, I will pull a toilet or go on the roof if necessary. I will do either one, depending on the situation. Most jobs I find a cleanout, inside or out. So I rarely have to pull toilets or go on roofs, although I think I do more toilets than roofs, I rarely go on roofs now that I think of it.

                              I also carry both a sectional and a drum machine on the truck for sewer jobs. I prefer drums by far. I use the drum machine for almost every job, but the K-60 comes out for those situations where the access requires it.

                              I also prefer augers, but that is only because I don't have one of those cool shaped grapefruit augers. I need to order one, I would at least give it a try. If it works, I'll use it.

                              So toilets, roofs...ok.
                              Sectionals, drums...ok.
                              Plungers, augers....ok.

                              But this was a fun thread to read.

                                a grapefruit plunger would be a better choice
