    I did. I did.

    Dried poop. Hard Poop. Bad Poop. Old Grandma Poop.
    Several feet of poop that went from a horizontal to a vertical.
    I didn't think this would stick to ABS vertical but it did.

    Got the camera in for answers.

    Previously I had used a bent 3/8" and 1/2 bulb to clear the upstairs toilet that was pulled.
    No effect as water was still in the line.

    Brought the Dreel up and pounded the poop.

    Problem was a flat to slightly back-pitched line before it hit the vertical causing a dam of sorts.

    The lighter cable wouldn't bust the dried poop off.

    New respect for Grandma Poop.

    It was oatmeal not dry poop that's why I suggested spinning out with a sectional cable.

    Yeah oatmeal, chit and toilet paper mix. Haven't you ever watched it pass through a cleanout opening just barely chugging along?

    That I have seen.

    This had a chance to dry and harden for months as Grandma had passed some time back.

    Dreel use in a upstairs bathroom is fun.

    And I used to like Oatmeal for breakfast.

    J cable comes in handy for things like this. I probably use it 2 or 3 times per year.

    I need a bigger truck!

    Does J cable spin with the same connector to your drill?

    J cable = 7/8"?

    Does Eel have 5/8"?

    You have to get the adapters from Eel to run the J cable and 1.25" bits.

    The Model N runs 5/8" sectional cable.
