situation is a 4" driveway drain, clogged w/ leaves, gravel, etc. from rainfall over the entire driveway.
I used a half-inch electric auger. But i cannot get it to advance very far, maybe 10 ft or so, and even that's a struggle, advancing it a couple of inches at a time. i tried both a small spade tip, about 1 inch diam, and a little bit larger about 1.5 inch auger type tip. Is there any particular technique to get it to advance?.
i am pretty sure i remember renting a 1 inch auger years ago, which went in pretty far. Does a fatter cable hold its position better to advance forward?
can i be sure it won't be too stiff to get it past the p-trap?
