  • More water ram talk

    I always keep my water ram around but almost never use it, takes up valuable space on the truck but when you need it...you need it. I went to a laundry drain call and what do I see.... a lead y with s trap going into the cement floor no cleanout and cross strainers so small not even my sink snake cable with no end will go thru. Busted out the water ram, a raincoat, and a prayer...bam flows great! I didn't even charge as it is for a good customer that builds a lot of homes and rough in's are kinda rare now days around here.
    I did explain it can back up again anytime and it should be updated in the future.

    I used mine today on a bar sink. Cleared the drain perfectly. I have also used it on kitchen sinks, bathtubs, and lav sinks many of times, and the drains stayed open at least 2 years. I still will say its one of the best tools on my truck along with my Ro-Pump Super.

        Generally you just hold down tight with pressure but like one I had today it was a double sink and no plugs I had would seal the drain in the other sink so I had 1 hand on a plunger pushing down and the other pushing down on the water ram. I did not get wet but it's those weird jobs where you are in akward positions that get you covered.

              Mine sits on the shelf in the garage!! It has worked on some occasions when nothing else would. I'll admit that. If I have to use it I know where it is. However, I've had pipes blow apart, taken a urine shower on more than one occasion... So on the shelf it sits.

              Ah... the sweet smell of urine.

                If you all noticed I never said I use this on a urinal... I am to smart to take a yellow shower. I rather pull it and power rod the line. The water ram is great on sinks, floor drains laundry tubs, and floor drains. One tip is to carry a street 45ยบ to help change the angle for where a lav faucet gets in the way.

                  Couldn't you make a guard to go around it to block blowback? Like when a Vet puts a cone on a dogs neck....

                      While I HAVE used it in urinal I didn't get sprayed there. (By then I had learned so I used towels and plastic bags to shield me.)

                      I got sprayed out of the toilet. Pretty much every time. If they make an extension I think I might get that.

                      Hey I bought a jetter last night on eBay. I think I got carried away and overpaid a bit. It turns out I could have gotten the same thing new for $400 more. Oh well.

                        They do make an toilet extension.
