      $120.00 is nuts. Especially because you can make your own with a simple heavy duty rubber glove hose clamped onto the end of a 4" x2" wye. Add a 2" ball valve and loosen the plug to the point where you can then reach into the glove through the wye and do the same thing for peanuts.

      Try it and you'll see you can grip almost any tool to finish the loosening.

            I'd buy one in a heartbeat if I ever needed it. I saw the tv show Ed the plumber where Ed opened a clean out in a basement and remember the look on the homeowner.

                Sure would be nice to see all my clean-out caps come off that easily.

                  Re: Safety Sewer Drain

                  good concept. I like ricks idea also with pvc over head cleanouts it sound promising. dang what a mess. I wish code made us install big ball valves on all over head cleanouts. I still have a bunch of cast with brass c/o that have to be cut or chiseled out. oh I dislike overhead cleanouts.

                  don't ever open an over head c/o without checking to see if the septic is improperly full.

                  1 time in the small town of Fennville I chose to pull a toilet because the business had way to much stuff in front of the cleanout. it seemed odd I couldn't clear it and the water level never rose higher in the toilet flange even when I ran water. Both manholes on each side of the block were full. man what a mess that could have been

                      That is a good reminder.
