    Talking good clean fun

    that is probably the hardest that fellow has
    worked in his whole life...'


    Over time , I have gotten spoiled and only will do the little
    kitchen lines anymore....

    working on the big lines are not for me..


    I would rather carry a water heater down in a basement
    and haul the old one back out ...3 times a day

    over grinding on tree roots all day long...


    Me thinks that the roto rooter guy had fun giving that fellow a bath...........

    At least he did not call himself a "plumber". Wow, a 75' 5/16" cable with a small end on it. That must have really cleaned the pipe. He must have figured it will be stopping up again soon because he did not glue that "vent" back in. I'll bet he went back to the shop and told everyone what he did to that reporter.

    These are the kind of guys that give plumbers a bad name.

    Here is a couple pics of my daughter trying to be a drain cleaner with a jetter Its the inspection manhole to a restaurant I do work at all the time. The drain is about 140' from that manhole to the grease trap. She really enjoyed helping me out on this one.

    She is when she wants to be. Here she got to play with a drain cleaning machine where it is pretty much safe. I started it in the line for her, she just had to feed it in till it reached the grease trap, then slowly pull it out till she seen the starter hose, then feed it back in again. After sending and retrieving the line about 6 times her arms where getting very tired and sore.

    SewerRatz has a transit van!

    I hardly see any of those here. But at home they're the backbone of Britain.

    Every contractor has one.

    Well done SewerRatz!
