    Re: Baby wipes

    We have been collecting them on a auger and pulling them out.Unless there is better way.
    I see rick used 3x4 cutter but I seem to struggle with any cutters going into baby wipes.

      greg i use cutters as the line is typically full of roots. the roots cause the wipes to hang up.

      i will clear the wipes and roots as needed to keep cutting.

      my secrete weapon, reverse auger is the fastest to get the line cleared, not cleaned.

      phoebe it is

          Did you clean this sewer lateral through the floor drain ?? arent you afraid of picking up a 3 or 4 inch ball of roots or white mice inside the 4 " lateral and getting stuck when you try to come back throught the 1 1/12 inch-2 inch floor drain ??

              I was doing "field rebuilds" of lift station pumps at a 20-plex every few weeks for almost a year.

              They would get so packed with various hygiene products that the motors wouldn't turn at all.

              Occasionally, both pumps would go out at once and it was a real super fun time.

              I'm glad I FINALLY got them to buy a grinder pump.... I got a call the other day that the last effluent pump has completely failed.

              Sometimes I wish our rates were higher......
