    Default what the duce?

    2 days 2 sewers I could not get opened. I have only had 1 in the last 5 years that. I couldn't get to pop. Both of these lines have a history of trouble. I tried like there was no tomorrow. Still couldn't get them to pop. Now I am second guessing my self and equipment

    cast going to clay. 3 inch pipe. than 4 inch. started off with the spartan 1065 with 3/4 cable. used an assortment of blades. All blades were sharp and good.
    The first one was only able to run out 55 feet and come to a dead stop. ground the spot for ever. still not flowing.

    I had one like that last month...ended up putting a spear head, then single 3" blade and up to 4" double blade, was a major, major root wad I was hitting....the spear head was the key to get it flowing for me...general wire SHD...

    I am thinking it is a city issue. both of the lines are in the same neighboorhood. just a block a part.
