        That was you dumping that stuff! I thought it was my mother-in-law sticking it out the window of the 5th wheel!

        Here we've got 50% septic tanks. The county sewers run 100' and the city is about 75'. Our sewers are really deep, too. The average sewer is 8' deep.

        Mine is on a county sewer 150' away from the outside wall. Luckily, I live on a big rock, so its a downhill run....elevation is about 40' above street level. In 17 years, I never had a stoppage...

          I rarely run more then 75'residential. Commercial is a different story, unless I'm in Manhatten. Then it's just the tiolet auger in the house trap 90% of the time. Some homes the sewer wraps around the house because they used to be on septic then I have over 100' or we get a lot of private sewers run how ever the contractor chose to do it back in the day.

              so do you have cleanouts every 100 feet? what are sending down those 200+ ft runs. cleanouts here are far and few between unless it is a newer house.

                Newer homes do have cleanouts every 100 feet, older ones, not so much.

                We have 400 feet of 1/4 inch jetter hose though, so if the k7500 won't reach I just power wash it.
