    I thought those were grooves but the more I look I think those are threads.It's the inside of a ABS threaded cap. Difficult to see without a reference point but I'd say 1-1/2" or 2".
    I concur

      I would rather sit home than work for a General Contractor . Never happen

        Here's the inside of a coffee lid....not the one in the sewer.
        How about Rickey's Reverse Auger ?

          This is in 6" pipe. I wasn't sure on the backwater because I snaked 120' without any issue coming back. I was using the 7/8 cable with the general 3" spiral sawtooth.

          So what happened was the guy started coming late paying me...."oh can i pay you tomorrow" kinda thing, plus he'd be $10-20 short a couple times. Then he gave me a job the other day and he asked for a 50 kickback. My reply to that was "I don't make money on your digs....should we rethink that policy"? He declined the kickback at that point. So yesterday we get to this job and he sells the drain job(he pays me, customer pays him) and he makes a little on top. Did the camera and saw this. So he sells a jetting job on the line for tomorrow with the same deal....he pays me, customer pays him, he makes a little on the top. But then he calls me this morning and says the job is canceled and he's putting in a cleanout. Here's the issue....there's already a cleanout there and the black lid thing is on the upstream of the wye. I asked him about the clay pipe left in there and he says he's gonna leave it. So basically he's having the customer spend alot on money to put something in that's already there that won't fix the problem. He doesn't know yet but my schedule is about to get real packed.

            I thought back water valve until you said the coffee cup lid. I think I've seen that printing on the coffee cup lids.
            Dang now we will never know

              I agree with the coffee cup lid, for what it's worth.
              This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
