Got a call local restaurant is plugged up everythings backing up. Id snaked it a few weeks ago brought back a ton of paper towels, "that was using the k 60 so i said enough loaded the k 750 and went on my way last time i was their i cut out a bunch of back grading castiron and repiped it in abs "no cleanout before" added a c/o and went on my way. Last time i waited till they were. Closed didnt start till 7;30 pm anyways go their today untread c/o half a turn threads on cap rip out cleanout shoots buy my head and sewage and contaminated water begin rushing bye my head. Frantically grabbing 5gallon pails and catching what i can basement fills with toilet paper corn "yesterdays special" and shiet 3" later and 8 buckets it finally stops..... Wtf its 22' to the sewer c onnection and a 4" pipe can not have 60 to 70 gallons of water in it over that distance start asking questions get told theirs a cleanout outside "previously told their was not get taken okut back fto a concreate well ring with a ancient sealed concreate lid remove lid to find the original septic tank "sewer was put in twenty years ago" pull lid and see the ring of sludge of where the water level was when i touched the cleanout..... I know i should have found this out before naking but call it lack of experience or stupidity ... But why when they got connected to the sewer would they have just tied into the outlet on the tank?.... Im so confused it was a tic keted plumber that did the connection what ijs the point of beeing on sewer if u still have a septic tank? .......? Any ideas or advise thanks seanny
