i have an interesting area drain job that is a 78' run between the catch basin and the sump ejector pit.
the problem is the 4'' thin wall abs pipe was falling apart and the line was full of sand and roots. pieces of pipe were also destroyed.
after attempting to get a jetter to clear the line, i determined that the line was history. so in a final attempt to get the 78' from basin to basin i managed to get through and then strung a nylon rope back as i pulled the jetter hose out.
this line will be used to fish in a steel cable that will then be used to pull back the pipe bursting chain and head.
all this is an attempt to save 78' of concrete and access to 7 parking garages.
the pipe bursting will follow once the job gets priced out by the original contractor.
