The lady called the plumbing company to clear the stoppage {3} times. Finally they came out with a camera. They say that they saw an obstruction in the line. I asked the lady if SHE saw it too. She said that she did. As she described it, I asked her, "So it is like a speedbump in the line?" And she answered "yes."

I have used cameras before, and sometimes even with the light in the camera head, it is difficult to see what's going on. With muck, toilet tissue, etc. hung up on the pliers, I can fully understand how the pliers were not seen clearly in a murky environment.

Those pliers were black. My guess would be acid. I know some acids turn steel black.

Yeah, I could have cleaned them up. But, I wasn't interested in doing that.
