WE DONT NEED ANY MORE TOOLS FOR OUR MACHINES
Nothing at all, I dont have a clue, I`m new to drain cleaning.
Sorry I said anything
Hand bags at ten paces, at the next round-up
My point is, don't tell me I'm crazy for sharing something that works for me. Your situation is clearly different. I WOULD be crazy to try to do 200' services full of roots with a 1/2" cable. I don't. I said a 1/2" is good to around 90' on anything but roots (or grease of course...I'll jet that as well) and will do roots to around 60'. It will. At lest around here. I've done it many times. Do you disagree with that? Or is 60' just useless to you? And it is lighter and it does go around bends easier, and I don't have to go on roofs or set up pipe to get to vents as snaking from a closet flange is easy with a 1/2" cable.
In a multi-unit building, with only one or two baths backed up, it will be close, within 20'-40', and it won't be frozen, and it won't be roots. A 1/2" cable will be fine, and I'm not lugging a 3/4" machine up to a unit to snake a toilet line if I don't have to.
In winter anyway, something close to your 90% of the 4" services I do in single family homes are frozen, not roots. I'd be surprised to see anyone cut ice with any cable. In winter I almost automatically set up the jetter as it will be frozen the same as you just break out the 7500 as it will be roots.
I think that many of the arguments about equipment and technique here are situational. I use a small electric jetter on sinks and love it. Others have tried and find it useless. Why? I suspect mainly that maybe 1 in 50 or fewer sinks I do here are galvanized lines, on which I have found the little jetter to be difficult bordering on useless. I suspect our diffences in commonly used cable sizes are also situational.... you do more single family homes with roots in the main lines that are fairly straight shots from cleanouts or vents, I do more multi-unit buildings with paper towels and tampons and a lot of bends working from toilet flanges.
I don`t disagree about anything, your not gonna get an argument out of me. I`m new to the bizzz remember? No argument here
