For that Mark, you would need the 4 bladed cutter. But you could just get a 3/8 cable and you would be covered for a situation like this. A 5/16 cable w/ bulb auger will cover you for most 2" and under lines. The same gun will run both cables.
I don't have much experience in drain cleaning mainly simple kitchen santee when replumbing kitchen sinks, shower trap and easy access main. Just picked up a K-39 and a Marco with 5/8" Both have been great for what I've run into so far, so my question, if I run into 20' of 2" that looked like Okies picture would a 4 blade clear the line? How does it get flushed down if lets say you're accessing a cleanout outside a kitchen run? Seems like the blade would just act as mixer and not move the gunk, If I was able to get some head pressure would it move the gunk down? Job for a jetter?
I should have titled this thread Hospital Nightmare part 3.
This is the same hospital I have been working on....
I have been replacing these line sections 20 feet at a time w/ sch 40 PVC, this hospital has a good sized crawl space but there are some really long crawls...lol
Wookie: I went for replacement due to the length of these runs (2"x50') and how flat they currently are, as I'm repiping I'm adjusting slope. The consistency of this muck is harder than normal but with normal muck cutting w/ a 4 blade and lots of hot water flushing makes a big difference. If I was not replacing and fixing other problems this would be a perfect job for a jetter...
