Christi Allen project in Oklahoma City, OK
I was contacted by Ms Allen and she stated she has been having serious drainage issues with one of her two bathroom groups , as well as not being able to wash clothes without sewage filling her garage floor and sewage filling the bath-tub . Only a few days had passed since she had another plumbing company supposedly clear her main trunk line under the slab . After throughly testing the system , I determined the "plumber" didn't have a true grasp of the situation at Ms Allens home . He attempted to clear the main trunk line through the roof vent , through a very small 2" vent with an undersized machine . Rarely can a trunk line be cleared properly from the roof . Many plumbers do attempt to clean a 3-4" line from the roof and succeed only in poking a temporary hole in the obstruction , and guaranteeing they will have on-going work to keep having to return to the home keep poking a hole through the compromised area . When an individual calls A Perfect Fit plumbing and gas , we want to clear the lines properly , we don't want our customer having the constant anxiety of wondering when the next time sewage will be on their floors and on their homes . I determined the roof was not the proper way to handle this stoppage, a larger machine was necessary and consequently a larger opening was needed to accommodate the large cable that is typically used for a 3-4" sewer line . Since there was no cleanout at the 60 yr old home , I told Ms Allen the best thing to do was to pull the toilet , giving us a full 4" opening to run the cable through . As I said , 3/4 of the home was completely blocked from draining . I pulled the toilet, brought in the heavy artillery, and began working the problem . It takes added time to clear a line this way due to the bulky and heavy machinery , but when we are done her stoppages will be every few years instead of every few months . As you can see , I pulled out heavy roots , signifying a compromised/broken section of pipe under the slab . Now she knows exactly what the issue is , exactly where the problem lies , and exactly what needs to be done in order to make a permanent repair to the system . When you need the work done properly , and piece of mind , and are prepared not to be penny wise and dollar foolish , call A Perfect Fit plumbing and gas , we'll be honest from the start.
