    Nice drain line!

    Here is a job I did the other week, the house was built in the 70s, indoor pool and the whole works. The bad part is the rest of the pipe goes right through the finished basement.Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1363210541.226981.jpg

    If you had turned the piping 180 degrees it would have lasted another 40 years

    Was that from acidic condensation?

    In high school I worked delivering and installing concrete burial vaults (family owned company) after this job every other was easy.

    But I digress, on one occasion the 16 foot flatbed truck we used for deliveries developed a flat front tire.

    The driver a wild Irishman called the office, the dispatcher (kind of a jerk of a guy) after being told to dispatch the mechanic with a new tire replied back. "Are you sure the tire is completely flat?" Where the wild Irishman said "Well, I don't know the top of the tire sure looks to be full."

    ive seen that where they use acid to clear stopped up drains. The pipe gets paper thin and you can poke your finger in it!
