    Re: Are sectionals really all they're cracked up to be?

    Houses are 90% plastic of some sort throughout, a few are iron underslab/clay services, some copper waste, some galvanized, but again, the vast majority plastic from fixture to main.

    Commercial/multi-unit residential typically cinh to the footer, pvc to the main.

    Main reason roofs are silly here is that the single story ranch with two baths on one wet wall, a 4" vent, and a roof pitched so you can walk on it even w/o snow just does not exist here, at least in any meaningful numbers. vents here just are, for the most part, not good accesses even leaving aside the hassles of getting to them.

    I agree, plastic is just better, other than noise and toxic fumes in a fire. A case in point is two codo complexes. Same era, essentially the same buildings, one has ci dwv, one abs. Manged by same person in same company. I do all their drain work so it's not like there are problems there I don't know about. I'm doing something, maintenence jetting on services, a sink stack, something on the ci buildings monthly. I'm in the abs ones maybe once/yr.

    That said, I still use a camera at least weekly, usually 3 or more times/week.

        we have a sectional in the family room and it has worked out nicely. i don't know why anyone would not want one.

          Let me know if you do!

            Here you go a picture of drill set up. You can get an adaptor to run 5/8 from electric eel I used to run the 5/8 also years ago no problems it's called J cable. Now I only run the eel 1.25 cable with it.

                How hard is that thing on the wrists ? What's top RPM ? If you have this why the need for a K-60 ?

                    Not much on the rists just let go of the trigger.
                    Why a need for the k60? Try running the drill and eel set up on your knee's
                    with not much room to move and low over head tuff on the back.
                    K60 would make that job easier.
                    Clearing roots would be as easy as 1,2,3
                    1 being my DM-55 long runs and over head sewers 2 being drill & eel raw root & hard blockage power were space allows 3 K60 Tight spots good mid range machine low over head and crawl spaces. Each machine has an advantage over each other why not have all the advantage you can get? Oh no 3rd picture I don't have a k60 Yet soon have to find the right deal

                      I just dont know, I rather use my K-7500 on roots as it will rip em right out.
                      The K-60 takes all day as it dosen`t have any power.

                      I too own a sectional but it`s in my livingroom
