They aren't ready to buy a new pump yet if this one continues to work which it won't at this rate.. but it will definitely be in the recommendation..

It's a 220vac service to the box so a 1 or 2 hp pump should be plenty

However I dont even know where all this goes and I noticed that for some reason I could here water coming down the vent when the pump shut off so I'm worried now that there might be a blockage down further in the discharge line where it ties to a sewer.. and possibly getting blown back down a vent or some thing...

Like I said I'm not sure what's going on with that but hopefully the issue with wipes has been figured out

Just an update on my drain cleaning stories...

I've finished my first term of school and another plumber has gone to school for his last term so I've been cleaning up where he left of...

rediculas plumbing jobs that have all been botched but I'm going to start back up again drain cleaning videos..

It's mostly been like running roof drains through stores and all that
Working on booster pumps and a few sewers here and there but I'll get more videos in..

I bought action cam I want to test it out see what it can do I've made some friends on youtube one guy from Korea who has interesting videos and another from Germany

Check em out if you so choose

Two drain service calls

No pics as the house was a multi million dollar mansion gated and everything...

But our company goes here every year... about 65' long last 15' of is 2" and rest 1.5" all abs

No slope always plugged at end.. there are cleanouts on it but they are 8' in ceiling...

3/8 cable to clear it ran cable to end got home owner to listen and tell me when cable is at the 3"..

Line is flat less than 6" of fall from end to end..

Would need 16.25" to be correct pitch by our codes.. I showed home owner that... hes mad that contractor didn't do it right I told.him it would be hard either way as the line to septic leaves at about 14" off ceiling..

... snaked it through ran hot water got cable nice and clean.. no mess perfect 50 dollar tip awesome...

2nd kitchen call... island kitchen drain has about 4 couplings a s trap p- trap.. and below that a y with cheater vent....

Snaked the heck out of it really greasy kept hearing cable going up... kept trying... kept trying no luck.... thinking ugh I might have to snake it from roof tomorrow.. pretty high like 15' off ground..

Went took a breather had a cigarette to calm my nerves... went back for round two tried tried tried... got it... must be a backwards ty never that hard to get it to go right way oh well... it's clear...

Basin was slow too so pull p.o and cleaned out hair adjusted rod so pop up will go up more and drain better...

These drains can be a real pain...

I feel tangos pain.
I hate new "renovations" I like a older house 1960 and previous which has copper or galv drainage because I know it was plumbed in right and cables will go the right way...
