  • New style root cutter.

    I was on a job and could not get the warthog to go into the clean out. I put on some taller gloves and stuck my arm in. I pulled out a foot chunk 4 inches round. The home owner was watching. She was told it was broke by RR and needed to be replaced. See snake showed one bad spot that was cleaned with alittle jetting. I always worry that if I dont call it right and someone else get it open, we look like hacks. Going to be my first RootX job in a month.

    Dane nobody is perfect in this trade, and you're going to make mistakes. You just don't want those "costly" mistakes to happen.

    A few years ago, I made the most elementary mistake a Plumber could make in this trade, and I've been doing this for a long time now. I ran hot water to a toilet in a new addition!! I know exactly how it happened, and that's what you get when you're talking to other contractors on the job and not paying attention. Let's just say I was embarrassed and got a STERN talking to from my father.
