    When have you seen a mech room floor drain work well ? Seems like every one I deal with is slow or doesn't work at all. Before draining some boilers I ran them. Only 1 out of 4 worked.

      I had a call to one of the schools I take care of. Sewage was backed up in to the boiler room. The house maintenance man was going to rod thru the floor drain. I did some investigating. The outside temp was 0 degrees. I found a manhole and popped the lid, it was backed up, next manhole, same thing. I called the city, they sent a couple truckloads of guys, came back with all brand new Carhartt bibs and shovels, and then they called a septic/jetter company I recommended. The jetter guys found 2 x 4's, chain link fence, rocks, all kinds of stuff, it had turned septic, it was in there so long. The sewer pipe was acting like a cesspool, and it finally reached terminal capacity.
