    Re: I can't think of a title for this one. Picture*Graphic-ish*

    All Clear, why did you choose not to pull the toilet and flip it over after about the first five or ten minutes? Is it because you don't have things like wax rings on the truck?

        Dunbar-a 5/8 sectional cable is what I was referring too. A cable that size has the same flexibility of a 5/16" IC cable. Another company made a system to snake toilets using these cables. Rick keeps thinking he came up with the idea first. I don't have the heart anymore to tell him otherwise.



        Short of back to back toilets, if i knew that was safe for the toilet without taking the risk of hairline cracks, I'd do that over pulling a toilet but that would almost feel like cheating,

        and how much work it would take to keep from damaging the porcelain surface in the bowl opening?

        I like all clear's invention, I could see that as a wrist saver instantly.

        I know what I'm getting into when I ask the customer key questions like:

        Is the lav making the toilet talk
        Is the tub making noises when you run the sink
        Will running any other faucets in the home cause the toilet to back up

        These questions will signify how far you are from toilet to clog. If it's a 5 by 9 bathroom you might get it with a 6' telescoping auger but that is wishful thinking most times.

        It's usually in a turn of direction going downward is what I've found it to be.

        I work in mostly new homes, PVC so the blame goes towards the plumbers who roughed that plastic in with a hacksaw, cut uneven and left the inner edgings inside the pipe. Cussing them as soon as I can't get it with a 6' auger.

          Why own the responsibility of 3 to 5 connections of leakage at that point if you can avoid it, clear the obstruction?


          (wax ring, tank to bowl, supply line, valve, busted closet flange discovery)


          The more you touch the more you own if something goes wrong. Path of least resistance.

            I dont think that is a problem on my truck


            I`ll bet you I have stuff in my truck you dont

            I didn't want to pull it because it was full of crap as they kept using it till it stopped up completely. Would you have played in crap that was to the rim????well neither will I but I cleared the W/C at the same price as pulling it and every one was happy

            Oh yea..... it was last "NIGHT" get it "NIGHT"

                good point, I should have said more time, money and effort.

                  Sorry Ridgid, but your auger is junk.

                  I use General augers, never had a problem, if anything the bulbs break first. On the ridgid ones, the plastic junk always breaks.

                        The last statement was only for entertainment value and in no way reflect the opinions of Emerson Electric, it's companies, to include The Ridge Tool Company and it's staff and employees. I do not condone the mistreatment of animals for fun. This statement is a joke.

                        ben, a year or so back i pulled a rat from a lav/ shower, tub stoppage with my new k-39pf with 5/16'' cable. i took it home to show joey and my buddy steve. it wasn't even allowed to go in the car in a ziplock. i had to strap it under the wiper arm to bring it to his house and then kept it outside.

                        as far as the k-50 with a 5/8'' cable and cutter. i could have chopped up a possum. doubt that you would pull it back through a 2.25''-2.5'' toilet trap. but you defiantly would push it back or chop it up. an auger would grab it and could pose a problem as it might not let go and get you stuck. a cutter would grind it up and get you through.

                        i guess the rats must run from me or we don't have them here. in all the years i've done drain cleaning and camering, this was the only time i've ever seen a rat. plenty of roaches, but no furry critters

                              Josh set up an alarm for his computer anytime someone posts with keywords like "Rick, K-60, drain, stoppage, pro-press" etc.
