Kitchen stoppage from hell today. I almost got the cable stuck. If I didn't have the 3/4" innercore cable. I would have been stuck and in deep doo-doo. I pulled back a WHOLE DRAWER'S WORTH OF STAINLESS STEEL DINING WARE from a commercial kitchen drain. I had to fight to pull the retriever head with all that mangled steel hanging from the end.
I AM IMPRESSED! RAW POWER! The K-7500 with 3/4" innercore cable is the ballsiest, meanest, badazz cablemachine on the planet. It mangled this steelware into twisted up bits and pulled a large pile of it out of the drain in a single pass!:thumbup:

So which do you think it was ... disgruntled employee or lazy dishwasher ... or both?

Probably. Nice grab by the way.

Do you have a jetter? I ask because I've gotten to where I hardly even pull anything but the jetter off of the truck if it's a commercial kitchen or residential ks drain. I could have run the jetter down that line until hell froze over (which actually probably is not that far from happening this week, brrrrrrrr) and never gotten anywhere with it. Was this the dishwasher's floor sink or floor drain that you cabled through?

I passed on a stopped mop sink today. I was there resetting toilets and the manager asked me to look at the mop sink. Brown standing water, but not poo water, WTF?!:blink: Turns out, the amigos been dumping the wood chips from the the new wood fired grill down the mop sink, :furious:WTF. I called the facilities GC who I sub to, and told him to get his drain specialist as I didn't want to try and rod that prick in 15 below.

I wonder what it would take to hook up an electro magnet to your cable for just that scenario. Of course you couldn't use it in c.i. or galvi but I bet it would work great on pvc.

4" kitchen main. I also had to hit individual floor drains. Job took me over two hours, it was the hardest commercial kitchen drain cleaning of my life. A jetter-hose would have probably burst on all that sharp kitchenware.
Or even hung up:eek:
