Klog Killa

Unread postAuthor: Hubb » Mon Dec 24, 2007 7:41 am

Last week, I had a sick clog. I tried a plunger, Drano, Liquid Fire, a snake...everything except calling a plumber. I was starting to get discouraged, having to deal with this in my tub for three days. Then, I remembered the thread posted not to long ago about someone using their pneumatic to clear a clog. I figured I had nothing to loose so I went to the shed and a few minutes later, I came up with the Klog Killa.

Stats
Barrel: 6' 1/4" pressure rated hose
Chamber: 1/2" x 12" galv pipe plus fittings
Valve: 1/4" brass ball valve

It didn't work on the inside of the house. I went outside and found the drain line and cut it. I stuck the auger in the pipe and found the clog but it would not break it up. I then placed the Klog Killa in place and secured the back flow stopper. With an 80psi burst, the clog was flushed out!

By request.

This is what came from the pipe. It includes, but is not limited to, hair, grease, grits, fish aquarium rocks, some legos, a dead fish, and anything else that is drained.

This is the only picture I have. I wanted to take one of the sludge coming out of the pipe but I was too disgusted to do so.

May be graphic.

Gift to the community my butt. You're just trying to make the rest of us look bad. So next time I get a nasty clot, I'm going to build a hybrid to clear it, just so I can 1-up this...

He did take a pic of it, it's the second one in his earlier post. Labelled "The former clog."

hubb at first I scrolled too fast and my first thought was, "wait, he found a hand in his drainpipe?"
