Problem: A homeowner from Manistee, MI called in about a sewer line backup, which resulted in water and sewage in the basement. Chuck of Salmon Sewer & Plumbing responded and found an enormous amount of roots in the line causing the blockage. The roots were so large and the clog was so bad that Chuck knew this would be a tough job.
Solution: Chuck knew the Spartan Model 1065 drain cleaning machine was tough enough to conquer these roots. The Model 1065 has heavy-duty power for 3”-10” lines up to 250’. The outer drum keeps dirt contained for customer’s peace of mind while the independently rotating inner drum prevents cable kinking and buckling yet allows quick torque build-up. The patented Dial-A-Cable power feed allows for quick cable changes and feeds cable in and out automatically.
Result: The technician pulled roots from the line both in the basement and the outside clean-out. Once the root mass was removed using the Model 1065, the water receded and the line ran clean. Chuck said “I’ve used many other machines in the past that never would have gotten this out of there but the Spartan 1065 pulled it right out. The right cable and machine really do make that much of a difference.”
