This was today's job. A clogged roof drain. It froze and clogged. It was letting rain water into the tripper room. It's a loooong room with coal conveyors running thru it. If the coal gets wet and sits, it starts heating up and can spontaneously combust. It was a 6" female hub, with a 6x5 soil X NPT bushing into a 5" galvanised line. I replaced it with a 4" no-hub drain. I had a short piece of no-hub from the drain into a 4" c.i. by clay tile fernco. The 4" clay tile o.d. is the same as 5" galvanised o.d.

This roof was probably 150' off the ground. There is a waist high parapet all the way around. I am going back Tuesday to rod that same drain.
Does it have a clean out at the base? If so I can come and help. If you are rodding from the roof itself, good luck buddy.
