    jake at first all i saw was the little threads in your hand

    you certainly saved the best for last

    did you have to pull it out or did it come back with the hose?

    you did go from downstream back upstream i hope.

    good job and video

        I must say,


        that's the longest root mass I've seen on record.



        Nice work!

              The bundle at the end came out with the hose and the root snake came out in a launch pit we had to make to remove it. We cut this from the top side past where the roots started. The trunk roots that all of this grew off of were nearly 3/4" in dia.

                So how did the customer react. Were they amazed at what you pulled out?

                Nice job. And thanks for sharing the video.

                      Re: Somebody call the Guinness Book!

                      Pretty amazing amount. I'm pretty ignorant to jetter operation. I thought I a high gpm/high psi system with warthog would "shred" the roots into small flushable pieces to wash into the DWV or sewer system.

                      This looks almost cut at one end and pulled out.

                      Any explanation or edumacation?

                      Thanks.

                        This is the only time I enjoy the smell of raw sewage, knowing there's payment soon to follow.

                          How did kelp get into the sewer line?

                            Picture the roots growing down the line. We entered the pipe from the backside where the roots were growing in.

                            We jetted up to them and sat at the spot where they were coming in and sheared them off.

                            There is a large part of this that was shredded from this. Once it came loose it flowed out into another launch pit at the opposite end where we pulled it out. It was a very muddy mess. You can see the difference by the pile of shredded roots at the end. This is what happens to roots when confronted with the Warthog nozzle.

                              Thanks JR. If there is root infiltration from cracks or joints-the system you have would then cut the root and wash it down the line-Correct?

                              Thanks.
