with mine, when I think I'll have a problem I don't and when I think I'll be fine I have a problem.

I was jetting a 4" area drain in a sunken drive couple weeks ago. I was jetting from the outlet about 200' feet behind the house. Jetter was sitting in the sunken part of the drive in front of the house.

If I stood on the left side of the outlet it worked. If I stood on the right side it lost signal.

Another time I had over 300' of hose out to reach the back of a house. Remote worked flawlessly. Another time I had the machine sitting 50' away from a pool drain in a 12' deep pool. I had to leave the remote in the shallow end.

we do not use house traps unless there is a hazardous, explosive chemical in the sewer system, the house vent system helps vent the sewer system. the manhole lids are sealed now to reduce rain water and theft or vandalism so the sewers in our area are vented thru the building vents. we are currently considering a relief vent at the connection of building drain to building sewer at main clean out.

You also have a laundry tub or slop sink in the rear of the basement. That sink is the only drain line in the basement. Tell me, where is the sewer going to back up? I don't care if the manhole is twenty feet deeper than that sink.

Under that same theory lets also pretend there is a sock in the standpipe.
