    Default stuck drain tape

    I have a sewer tape stuck in my c/o. I don't think it's stuck very far down but it goes into the slab. Is there anyway I can free it up without having to break open the floor? It is is in there pretty tight and doesn't budge at all. It is the rounded head end that is stuck and it is a 4" iron pipe. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    It is probably the attachment that is caught on a sharp edge. You may have to attach a chain hoist or truck to it and force it out.

    My guess is that you used to small a snake in to large of a pipe and the snake turned onto itself and is rapped-up on it's self.
