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)

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
