Pipe cleanout

6 posts in this topic

We're in the process of installing duct work for the geo system, and my plumber/ HVAC guy mentioned that we have some waste pipes that do not have much drop to them, and subsequently, are half full of "stuff". He had to move some waste pipes to push some pipe. He mentioned an high pressure attachment that you can put on the end of a garden hose and feed it down the pipe from the kitchen sink trap to clean it out. Is there anything like that out there, and if yes, are they worth buying?

Just forget the hassle! Have em steamed by a pro with the equipment.

Then on occaisons use a bacteria that goes into the septic to produce emzimes,but put it down sinks instead of throne.

Can I do that now or is it too late (bacteria)? They said it was half full (in a 2" pipe). It drains fine right now.

If to much grease goes down a kitchen drain, yes, over time it will totally clog. Cheapest and best fix would be to replace the section of partially clogged pipe, next would be to rent a drain cleaner machine, third would be call roter router.

I'd steam it first,get all that grease out then use the bacteria 2-3 times a year.I use stuff called GreenPig in packets 1/2 down kitchen then the rest split in 2 bath sinks.Rinse it down and let it set overnight or longer without running water down if your leaving for a weekend or longer better.

My kitchen sink drain did that. Finally I just cut the galvanized out and replaced it with plastic. The old pipe was about half full of gunk and had started leaking. I added another inch or two of pitch with the new pipe and haven't trouble for several years. High pressure water attachment thing will just blow water out the vent (path of least resistance, tried it)

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
