any input would be greatly appreciated. Went to a job today. The water heater was leaking, that's when the home owner discovered the floor drain was backing up. Also the house has been sitting empty for the past 3 years. There is a mop sink (1 1/2") first then the floor drain (also 1 1/2" with no clean out plug). So I went through the clean out under the sink. got the cable in about 7 foot and it just stopped. black dusty looking water started coming out of the floor drain while i'm trying to cable through. I couldn't make any progress on the blockage. pull the cable out and it's clean but really hot. I was using 1/2" cable. I'm thinking maybe its sediment build up from not being used. My question is should I cut out the concrete and replace the pipe? thanks for your time.
