I started this job yesterday and finished up today, 5+ hours total. The previous plumber wanted to bust up the floor in his completely finished off lower level. Home owner says he had his outside sewer dug up to remove a cable section & cutter 8 years ago. I think they forgot some, lol !
All of these 3/4" cable pieces were under the basement floor. I had to pull half of them back through a wye and two 45's, PITA.
Looks like the cable was laying in the sewer for YEARS some pieces were very brittle. Weird how there were so many pieces. 2 smaller 1" - 2" pieces I had to leave in they should flush out.
Good thing I had my choice of several different retrievers as only the one would snag them.
