  • Ever see hard water deposits clog a sump line?

    I have. I rodded this sucker three times, with two different heads. Kept pushing the clog, then binding the cable. The camera showed just about nothing, due in part to the iron content of the water/muck...red, red, red. So I just cut it out.

    Most of the junk is under the dirt, as I cleaned the line out with the cats-paw. It was scale that came loose from inside the pie, then eventually clogged up.

    I have seen lumps and bumps of build up but never the whole pipe. I am not sure how it would get that bad.

        The line is 3 inch. My guess is it started clogging, then it froze, thawed and dislodged material.
