One time I got called to open a drain the HO couldn't get open. The house was out in the country and when I pulled up the home owner led me to a ditch where the end of the pipe came out. The first thing I noticed was shotgun shells laying all over the ground, I asked if he likes to hunt but he told me that the shells came from trying to open the drain. He told me that when the drain would clog he would just stick the shotgun barrel up the pipe and pull the trigger and it would open, but this time it didn't work. I looked up the plastic pipe and seen several BB'S imbedded in the pipe wall. I run the 1500 up the line and pulled out the stoppage, it turned out to be a large amount of shotgun BB'S all stuck together. I must admit on some drains I prefer dynamite my self but I guess one has to make do with what one has. I had one customer pour kerosene down the drain and light it to burn up the roots but the firemen who came to put out the fire told him to call us.It was not too bad to get the roots out! It was all the melted stuff that got washed down the drain from the fire hose that was hard.
No announcement yet.
Funniest way HO'S try to open their drain
