The acid does not corrode the cable, it gets into the pours of the steal and changes the temper of the cable. Oiled tempered cable is very porous, where music wire cable is a lot less porous, so it can resist the damage of acid.

    Oh note our name "A - Archer Sewer and Plumbing" Notice Sewer comes before plumbing? We been cleaning sewers for 50+ years, I have been cleaning sewers official just over 20 years, unofficially 30+ years. The unofficial part was when I worked summers and spring breaks with my father, he has taught me a whole lot. I also learned a lot from Marvin at Allan J Coleman.

    All Clear, I was wondering what brand cable is that, along with do you know if its music wire or not?
