I rod with a K1500A. Works great, has power etc. The other day I rodded a 4 inch CI line 80', broke the clog, pulled the cable out and C cutter had nothing on it. So begin flush tests with paper and running water. Cloggs back up. This time rod 110' and the clog will not break, cable hardly moves, binds up etc. I only had 115' with me. Manually pull back the cable...nothing! This run would have about another 60' to the street, in order to maybe push the clog into the main. Well, going to get a locator, and go from there. Spent 2.5 hours on the job, I feel anymore time spent rodding would be a waste. Especially not getting anything on the cutter. And the customer is paying...There are two huge trees over the run. The line is about 4-5' deep, maybe.
No announcement yet.
