  • Today's 200 foot run Good day to own a drum

    This is why it's still good to carry a drum machine

    Well, they called this morning about that 200 foot sewer run I posted on another thread yesterday. Line runs threw a small forest of trees 200 feet to a manhole on the street below. Pull up to look up the hill to see the grade and the lay of the land and there is raw sewage coming up out of the ground about 170 feet down. Picture 1 shows the awesome "Sludge Slide" Last picture is the nice view I had while running this 200 foot sewer also 60 degree's out today. Loaded with roots at every section of clay took 6 hours to remove the roots. Only took one photo of roots they were all about the same size coming out.
    Nice view's but then 4 family home was a DUMP!

    Customer turned down using the camera Had the city come out open thier manhole and we dye tested from building to test flow.

    Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

        Just the average size clumps of roots I was pulling out per section of clay pipe. They were not too tuff just a lot of them.

          No, I mean the white thing. I've never seen an accessible cleanout here.

              You probably had your shorts on compared to what your used too!

              Good to have several machines & equipment. It would have sucked to run a K-60 there.

                              Best part it was 8 minutes from my house I like these type of jobs beats 6 hours of windshied time. If it was freezing out It would have sucked.
