    Re: Kitchen & Laundry Lines

    Question , Adam. I'm guessing New Const. is down in Your area, as is in most places , and this drain work is taking It's place, to some degree. Are You enjoying this service work? Are You doing an advertising campaign? Myself , I enjoy learning!

      the customer typically just wants a running/ draining sink. not a brand new line.

      working from inside through a 1.5'' trap arm, i typically run the 5/8 with either the bulb auger or the 4 blade cutter. if these make it, i'm happy and the line is draining fine. the customer is back up and running and good to go.

      outside 2'' c/o i will use 7/8'' with either my 4 blade or my reverse 7/8'' auger.

      remember that the 7/8'' with a cutter, female coupling, male coupling, and cable, is not as flexible in a tight 2'' 90 as you think.

      the reverse 7/8'' auger has a good 13' of pure cable with open hook doing the cutting before you have to worry about a couple of couplings.

      I remember an old article in P.+M. Mag. years ago. It's quick ,and serves the customer well ,to just cut out the SLIMMEY OLD Galve sink run,than play with it. I agree, and do this on a remodel.

        Draino anyone?
        Pipe was flat so over the years draino was the remedy.
        Still need to figure out a way to get under the kitchen.
        Anyone know about 2" liners?
        I'm confused. How did you get this horizontal piece out? Looks large enough and intact like you have the floor open.

        I have never pipe lined or patched. Just watched some videos. Every one I've seen done there had to be some pipe intact with a reasonably clear bore there. This looks past that and the pipe removed anyway.

        Am I missing something?

              You've been working hard.

              Would the Fernco patch work? Gene B. has some experience if I recall.

                  Work is slow.Calls for work too far apart.I'm a TOXIC HOG.Bathroom is in stagnant air.Sweat feels good.Scares the owners wife though.
                  So many things in service I'm not used to.I like physical stuff.
                  Now I know why 9to5 professional talkers go to the gym.No real work.

                    I have to say Adam is one of the hardest working guy I have ever seen and he is not afraid of shovels. It's not to often you see the contractor scatter the laborers (105 degree day) so he can dig it himself but I saw it happen.

                              One can only imagine how much harder I would have had to work had it not been for your Seesnake and Navitrac.

                              Thank You Mark
