  • Drain call with a twist

    Had a good one today,
    Toilet bubbles when the whirlpool drains .
    But when she turns on the whirlpool ! Snakes come out of the kitchen cabinet

    Ok this sounds interesting better than the leaking water line in a ditch call with a 20 deg temp
    we got their cleaned the drain got it working no problem

    We Question the girl about the snakes
    She killed 5 last summer and 4 in the last month
    The tub had 2 side panels that we took off and a end panel can see two snakes right away
    We got lights shinning on them I got all 3 pairs of my long needle nose out,
    I grab one snake by the tail using the needle nose and drag him out, my son gets the water key and pins down his head and I get a second bite with the second pair
    We take him out side and took the water key to him

    Go back in for the next one , my son stirs him up with the probe and he heads down to my end
    I had the drain in my way but a got hold of his tail, but he was holding on to the drain and slid through the round end needle nose , and got away

    The lady of the house is standing on her bed Lol

    We brought screen and metal flashing with us , we stuffed screen all around the tub drain
    old house but a slab floor

    Went into the kit and put folded flashing along the walls and the floor of the cabinets and screwed it down to close the gap

    Was one for the books for sure

    Don't anybody make him mad when he has the water key in his hand.

    Do you charge extra for snake service?

    Unplug drains and plug up hole. Well done.
    Roots beware of the C snake with shark teeth.

            Just think of them as a large worm.

            Would a large shop vac suck them in?

                Uncovering a separated drain pipe a yr or 2 ago at the edge of a house exposed 6-8 baby rattlesnakes. This was late in the fall and the weather was fairly cold. I got photos somewhere, need to find them.

                      It was a fun job really ,
                      If you look around the snakes tail you can see part of a snakes skeleton
                      Their were a few of them, along with a bunch of snake skins

                      Now if I were under the house a would have felt a lot differently
