  • Luckiest Sewer Cleaner Of The Week Award.....

    Goes to me

    I'm rodding out a 100' 4" sewer today and I'm coming back out after my second and final finishing run. I pull in 75' and there is the end of the cable, WTF I'm looking at the end in my hand and it looks all good so I'm thinking the pin somehow fell out. Now I'm thinking how the hell did that happen and how the hell to get my 25' section of cable and cutter back out. I take a quick peek down the cleanout and to my absolute amazement the end of my cable is half way up the wye

    I simply reached down, pulled it out and exhaled a big breath of relief

    I'm going to start replacing my pins every 2 or 3 months I was very lucky this time.

          I carry a couple dozen roll pins inmy truck. Mostly for when one goes flying when I try to change out cables or cutters, but also to change them when they get worn. If you did lose the cable forther out the retraiver will grab it easy enough.
