    Default Finally kinked a cable!

    Bound up in a 2" CI wash machine drain line under the slab. Originally I tried three different cable heads that came with my K50. Finally I got the head past a stiff point and went in 15'. Upon pulling the cable out, it bound up.
    Tried back and fourth a couple times then jammed on it and kinked the cable.
    I got everything out, nothing on the end. I then stuck my Seesnake compact down the line went 15' no problems noted in the line! Hit a spot/divot could go no further. Got to find the c/o outside so I can camera back into the house to see from the other end.

    ... and the question is? Are you asking us where the clog is? ( CI, you mean CO)

    Might have gone in through a CO, while snaking a CI, (cast iron) drain line.

    Probably none, just venting her frustration. I once had a plumber kind a brand new 100' cable before he even got it installed in the drum.
