  • Over head drum trap cleaning

    Hi, A recent tub blockage was between drum trap and 4". Very short run but drum trap was in the basement with cover on the bottom. 1 1/2" pipe with 3 90's. I tried K-26, K-38 & K-50 with every tool and cable size made and could not get past 2nd 90. I got the hair ball out first time with K-26 but I should be able to go all the way to the 4". If trap was mounted with cover on top, the exit pipe would be near the cover and no problem. Make a guide pipe? Also sealing the cover is a problem for me. Thanks, Dennis......
