  • Ok drainsters

    We have had very Little rain this winter. Now everything is blooming. Yesterday cleared lateral, shower and bathtub backed up. Did K-375 from roof stack. I could feel breaking through blockage, but no roots came back.

    Now today, 7 houses down the street, SAME THING tub and shower backed up WTF ? Do You think the roots are on search and destroy ? Tanks Tool
    I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

    Not sure your roots can smell the tub drainage but our main root stoppages will quadruple over the next month. Repeats every year about this time. More so in lower rainfall.

            Well I sold a dig, clean out ,install for tomorrow. A Rick's texas twins . I feel as hypocritical as an IRISH Funeral director trying to look sad at a $40,000 Funeral.

              had a contractor come in today to unclog the drain pipe in the conference room small sink for coffee pot and water.
              the drain was an old one from a bathroom that had been torn out so they hooked up to it.
              where it was plugged at was beyond reach of his little drain auger. so he decided to jet it
              what a mess! office downstairs was soaked with dirty water as the hack splice (thin rubber hose just slid onto the drain pipe blew apart)
              i was called to cut the power in the office

                  Not I. I was 2000 miles away finding a gas leak that the gas co. Gave them till the 9th to fix or they were going to shut them off.

                  Used my electronic manometer to verify the small leak and isolate it to within the structure of the house. Front lawn to house was fine.

                  This manometer is calibrated to .01 of an inch of water column. Amazing little tool to verify a leaker.

                    Today I realized How nice a K-60 would be on a roof . At 70 It's not easy to get the K-375 up a ladder. I'll start looking for a used one Me thinks

                      I'm the only one that will touch a root clog around here, the others send them my way if it aint plastic they dont want it I love it. But I have noticed over the years that the drains will clog at the same time in one area. Sometimes it is caused by them working on the road or something that knocks the stuff on top lose.

                        I think if you are not sure about the work go for a local plumber in your area . This might help to sort out the situation

                            Not sure ones sources may aroma the actual container drainage but your principal underlying stoppages may quadruple within the next month.
