  • Rock In Sewer....

    What would be the best way to get these rocks (and Hot Wheel Car, lol !!!) out of this sewer. It's about a 250' run to the city sewer with directional cleanouts every 100'.

    There is a section stretching 25' with the rocks lined up in the bottom.

    Sewer runs in the back of a row of two 8 unit apartment buildings.








    The vertical outside cleanout had a few inch separation about 4' down. Must have happened from the frost over the years. I stomped the 4' section somewhat back into the boot.

        reverse jetting will blast the rocks and hot wheel car into the city main. of course getting the jetter from the city to the lateral is the fun part.

        a forward jetting nozzle will probably not have enough push to wash what you have down at that distance. a heavy fiberglass push rod attached to a jet hose and front facing nozzle might do it, but it will need a camera in there too.

          Use an Eel round blade to push it out to the city sewer.

            I've done that on shorter runs but I don't have 250' of Eel cable

            That's a looooong way to be pushing rocks and there is a 25' stretch that is totally lined up with rocks at the bottom.

              It will work, to bad you are not closer, I have 600' of Eel cable. But with a clean out every 100' Just start at the first one when you pass it then go to the next one. Also the Pipe Patch system will fix that separation you have pictured.

                Really............ ?

                How is this possible when the lateral doesn't directly tie in to the manhole ???
