      I am trying to stay in my normal routine, but I am failing at a lot of things today.
      Bless Her ,She will be in My prayers today.

        Doesn't code require a C.O. every 100 ft. on private property? Common sense does.

          We *know* things will be fine for mom!
          Our prayers from Minneapolis,Alaska,Nunya
          and points elsewhere will insure this!

          The southwest 'burbs here have many properties
          where the sewer heads out the back of the house
          to where the septic once was and wraps around
          the house and ties in the street...with no cleanout
          for the whole 225'.
          Cleanouts.Bwaaaa ha ha ha haaaaaaa.

              Yes but years of repaving and moving from septic to municipal sewers has it's way of losing things.

                Does the length count if the machine is on the ground and your on the roof or are we talking just pipe distance?

                  Dan,

                  having the machine 50 feet from the pipe opening just so you can say "i used a k-60 and went 215 feet" doesn't count
                  the only dumb question is the one that is not asked!

                    ok, I had to try I think I got beat out by 600' all ready. I guess I would have to say my longest is 145'. I will post what I used later I am drawing a blank.

                              I ant pulling anything, it was the longest run ever manhole to manhole. The rod was straining from 525' on, used reverse to let the cable self feed. The rolled it up on forward holding the cable on the edge of the pipe so it can feed itself out. Once the system was drained down, we got our K-1000 out there and ran a 6" cutter through the line. Came back a week later to finish the line off with a jetter.

                              Later on that month we installed 3 manholes every 200 feet.

                                ~300' out about 7-10 times a year, sometimes up'n'over roof vents. Using machine that is designed for this kind of jobs is a Gorlitz GO 68HD w/ autofeed and 11/16-3/4" no-core cables that makes it easy to get in and out that far. Longest Ive seen this machine done about 440' of 4to6" pass the manhole that was not accessible due it was under the trailler.
