Thought for the Day

It is never a good sign to be running a drain snake down a pipe and come back with tree roots.

That about sums up my day.

    Ohhh… NOT good!

  2. My dad got away with a semi-annual snaking for about 5 years before finally calling for an excavator. You have time to save up for septic work, until that moment when you don’t, of course.

    Two words: copper sulfate.
    Works like a charm.

    • Going to snake it out then put some of that down the drain.

        Wait till night, after everyone is in bed and has used the head for the last time for the evening, or use it when everyone is out of the house for a good part of the day. That way it’ll lay in the pipe and give its full effect.
        Good luck…
