  • my microdrain toilet-oscopy

    so now that i have a microdrain, with a microexplorer i thought it a good idea to do a toilet-oscopy

    i have a pressure assist toilet 1.6gpf. it's connected to 17 year old 3'' no hub pipe.

    so the hardest part was navigating through the kohler 2 pc. 1.6 pressure assist ada toilet. had the best luck with a single ball guide.

    from there i was home free all the way down 30' with multiple bends.
    4x3 no hub closet bend, 3x3x2 heel outlet, 3'' comby, and a couple more 45's all no hub. could have gone farther but i ran out of push rod

    this is the newer red push rod that is slick and comes back dry. it glides effortlessly through the toilet and past all the no hub fittings.

    believe it or not, i was more impressed than i though i would. i was skeptical at first thinking i'll never need or use 30'.

    i was wrong

    enjoy as you see the inner workings of my 17 year old waste system. by the way, it's never been snaked under the house.

    a clean toilet-oscopy is a happy toilet

    Why an ADA toilet?

    You finally installed the bidet toilet seat?

    Nice pics but no vid?

        He calls it "comfort height" for when he is sitting and reading.

        You finally installed the bidet toilet seat? Nope! Just the sticker.

          I love it when "Buddy Steve" comments towards the event of having to fast forward through a half hour of dialogue just to get to the problem location on the taped sewer inspection one particular plumber provides.

            and that's why he would use me. i provide a video with information that a homeowner or contractor can understand.

            not a silent movie with no sub-titles. nothing like watching a silent video with no voice over, no footage and no locations.

            all they did was give me an opportunity to impress them with mine



            watching hundreds of other videos over the years, very few were actually useful. 95% of them were a waste of money and time.

            lets see your oscar nominated video

              So how do you like the bidet... I thought Joey would never let you install it.

              BTW... great pics.

                i'm easing her onto it

                it's just the decal and not the seat, yet

                maybe next time she goes out of town, i swap it and hide the remote. but it has to be late night so she doesn't see it coming

                maybe the roundup hotel has bidet seats by now

                  I knew it was just the decals. You would never use one for a week or 2 and not comment about it. They are that great!!!

                      I know, I know. from people that are aloud to install them we get 2 responses . If they are a healthy person we are told that thing is awesome. If the person has any issues with toileting we are told it's a miracle.
