  • Mystery Sewer Damage (video)

    OK so it is not a mystery that the line is damaged but exactly what the item is is the mystery Any guesses.... I'm going to Jackhammer this line up tomorrow and will post pics and results....

    A bit of background: Medical clinic lateral line servicing 1 bathroom and a mop sink. The previous owners (dental clinic) also had problems with this line. My first thought is that it is a piece of rebar driven through the line to support the mat at the time of construction. I can't get the camera any further down the line to see if there is more damage until this obstruction is repaired... The video was taken with a Ridgid Micro Reel.

      Hmmmm. Not sure. Looks disgusting; not sure how it broke through there. Appreciate the post, Bill, and look forward to seeing the result.

        driven in fence post with slime buildup all over it?
        No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

                I don't think it is a fence post, I think it would be rebar or forming stakes.

                  A set of dentures?
                  But seriously it looks like a piece of rebar, used as a grade stake?

                    too late, already said, but I agree; rebar, maybe form stake or grade stake (though those usually get pulled out after the pour).
                    This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

                        Nice update Bill. Looks like Plumbducky was dead on the money. I see the Hilti in the background. So many toys.... (Envious)

                        Don't let anyone give you any s#@! about Fernco's either.

                            I'm amazed you got it done in such a small hole. I may have gotten frustrated and destroyed the room.

                            Kept it clean too.
