    Oh that was exactly the situation...

    8 PM... 45 minutes from home...
    And this clogged toilet call would only add 45 minutes to my getting home if I did a drive-by....

    Yep... Funny how those lying dispatchers at those companies we used to work for turn long drives for a toilet auger into mainlines all day...

    Then at night well past the end of your shift can turn a crap in the tubs and shower nightmarish main line in a huge home into a toilet auger job....

    I wonder why they just have a high employee turnover rate and someone hasn't gone postal on them yet....

    Maybe not "postal", but I'm willing to bet more than a few wound up with a shitty attitude.

    Had to pull a cleanout with standing water in the pipe. Used my shop vac to suck out the water as I was unscrewing the plug. Worked great.

    LMAO, just another gimmick(albeit a good one) to separate us from our mo0ney.
    Take a look at Plugpuller.com let me know your thoughts.

    It looks a little beefier but I see it just fitting PVC & ABS Plugs...
    It doesn't fit the brass ones with a hex...
    Not that they would come out without a hammer & chisel anyway...
