I did a job in far Rockaway, ny sunday 5/3/09. sewer main (house trap) is on first floor. no basement. customer called said water backing up through shower stall in back of house. she also told me the sewer main is backed up. checked the The house trap and it was was clogged on both sides as well as water in the pit. should mention- the actual u bend is about 24" from the surface, not a few inches from where you remove the 4" caps like in normal cases. took my k-60 and after getting it in the line. the water levels started to drop. went in 75 feet. pulled out 4 tampons on the snake. went in again with funnel auger. full 75 feet. it came out totally clean. ran all the lines. tested toilets with paper. all clean. flushed with hot water. happy with job. she calls me back wednsday. says water came up from shower. i ran hot water for 15 minutes in shower stall no problem, checked sewer - house trap all good, plus saw water from shower registering at house trap. today sunday. she tells me it backed up on Friday at shower again. ran water today for 15 minutes at shower, no problem. I don't know what's going on. The only thing that I can thing of is, that it has rained a lot the last 10 days here in far rock. is it possible its backing up from city line? Anyone have any ideas?
