  • Ficus, baby wipes and a k-60

    here's another k-60 job from today

    a 15 unit condo project with the garage level filling with waste.

    according to the original plumber this hasn't been snaked since 12-06

    removed a 4'' c/o on a test tee in the garage.

    i knew it was going to be in the 6'' sewer lateral in the street.

    so i just wanted to punch a hole and get the garage to drain

    cars were already in 3'' deep waste.

    i grab my mighty k-60 with special reverse auger cutter.

    72' out and i work it like a skilled fisherman.

    with the reverse auger you actually run the machine in reverse to grab and forward to release the catch.

    well the big fish was no match for me and the impressionator

    this is what ficus roots and baby wipes look like after they've met the impressionator

    i then went in with my 3.5'' root saw to clean it up.

    Wow that's a lot of babies in that building.
    "Flushable" doesn't always mean "flushable".

      that looks about like the mess I pulled out yesterday except for it is missing the aluminum foil, but I had to use my lowly K750

            Rick,
            I'm beginning to think that the impressionator title has very little to do with the machine itself, rather, it's the man running it.
