  • Triple wound coated cable

    We have been cleaning a lot of drains this week ,I was proud Monday when my son got his first squirrel , no pic it was bad
    Today we went to a body shop drain backing up.
    My son went in with our retriever head and got hung less than 2ft in we dug up the 2nd cl out that was broke and poked down in it
    I kept running forward and backward with the machine and it finally let me pull it back out with 12 ft of extra cable on it.
    So I go back in and to clear it and I'm hanging right away so we stir the dug up clean out up and it starts to flow and find more cable down in the pipe going past both cl outs .. with the water running we were able to use the needle nose to work the cable down the drain far enough to grab the end.. Another 12 ft of triple wound comes out

    I'm pretty sure you weren't supposed to find that. Must be some sort of prototype cable. Better put it back where you found it.

                Bet I know why there is tape on that cable!
                Who ever was snaking the line got hung up and could not get out
                Cut the cable then folded it up and taped it shoved it back in the drain and ran
                Said nothing to the customer about being stuck maybe the line drained for a bit and they still collected on this evil hack deed

                    If they could cut it why not pull out the part of the cable that's not stuck instead of shoving it back into the drain? I have to be missing something.

                              Maybe cable snapped in the reel ?? Then they taped it up and shoved it in
                              and said i'm out of here
