I miss not viewing and posting on the forum; I've not been a good member. I'll attempt to share some pics from the field although they're not as good as I thought when I took them. Had a customer call me with a mainline backup. Fairly new development(I worked in there years ago), house recently purchased by Canadian, friend staying in the house with his family down from Canada. Called me out of the phone book. Opened the CO cap, line was holding towards the sewer. Jetted the line a few times. Line wasn't really built up, something was wrong, couldn't tell what. No, I don't yet own a camera, yes I need to get one. I give a 6 month 1 return trip guarantee. Meanwhile, the owner came into town a month later and paid me to hook a new meter to his irrigation system. Nice guy. Sure enough, he called me a few weeks later; house backed up again. Cleared it for free and told him if it happens again, we will definitely need to camera the line. Last week, it blocked up on a Friday afternoon. Cleared it and told him I would get it camera'd 1st thing next week. Let the city know there might be a problem with the tap. They camera'd the line, said "object going through the line 28' from the house.(Close to the tap) They did a terrible locate, but I finally found the line by spinning my 7/8" innercore with the K60. Can't complain, I didn't pay. Surveyor or engineer drove a property marker w/rebar straight through the line! They used 3" foamcore, not the 4" schedule 40 I would have used, but.. Lots of crap like this here, but what are the odds... Dead friggin center..
No announcement yet.
Poor excuse for a member!
