  • success with stones in pipe

    I was able to push the stones out to the main city sewer with the K1500 and the funnel auger head, twice the stones bunched up and had to clear with spade bit. This took 3 hours but worked out really good. I then got a company to come in and clear the main with a jetter/vac truck. All stone is out and there was a lot. Anyway, I found in this situation that the auger worked very well, no stones were left in the pipe by augering. Look forward to discussing more problems.

    Thanks for the rest of the story.

    How did the gravel get in there in the first place?
    This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

      The stone got in during construction, I do not know if it was the plumbers or the builder, but the stone had to have went down the 4" clean out. No one has jumped up and taken responsibility so the homeowner will have to try and re coup expenses through the home warranty program.

        Maybe neighborhood kids during construction.
        "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
        John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
