  • Whole house trap and roots

    Customer has a whole house trap in driveway. Blockage I'll deal with sat. A.M. suspect a row of Juniper trees near By. What root cutter can I pass through this trap? Thank You
    General maxi rooter,3/4" cable good assortment of cutters. Also K 375 with 1/2" cable.
    Only about 30' to street main
    I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

    Stick with the maxi rooter! I had the same machine and i would use the 3" spiral root saw and i never had much trouble passing a 4" c/i trap!

      Don't have any experience with 3/4". I'm guessing a C cutter if your lucky.

      Sounds strange "whole house trap in driveway". All of ours are in the basement. Easy to get to. I usually use a C cutter on 1 1/4 4 foot section and stand on it to force it to "screw" itself in.

        Also, most (not all) have a trap bypass here.

            Gene's right ,I was wrong ! No house trap, regular clean out. Ran spear head 1 st , then 4' root cutter in and out 3 times. The sewer district will camera this for free. They raised their rates and every one HOWLED,hence the new service, IF You have a clean out. Never brought back any roots. The Spiral cutter grabbed hard Just pass the Y one section of clay pipe ,I guess. Do You guess a break? I'm just a cub scout trying to learn from You Guys.
            Charged $125.00 Iguess that's fair Thank's Tool
