PLUMBING CAST IRON MAIN SEWER DRAIN REPAIRED IN CRAWL SPACE

Good morning plumbers, as you know we do everyday plumbing the good the bad and the ugly All what training my kids the trade This next vid, it’s continuation from an ugly crawlspace We repaired to water main while we were looking for a sewer break Couldn’t find the sewer break until we really dug deep and found another lateral that we didn’t know was there under the dirt It’s a doozy and we appreciate you guys tuning in See ‘ya inside How’s she lookin’? “Ok” “So far this pipe looks all good” I’m a little concerned with this back toilet man I’m not sure Ok we have a little twist to what’s going on, we found an additional line in the back So we’re trying to figure out where this problem is To me, we still have a sewer leak You alright? Alright folks, we determined that the sewer’s good We cannot find a broken sewer. We found an additional bathroom back and we’re just gonna make sure Yeah, let it rip Oh, George Now I know what you’re talking about I just found the Y you found Wow Alright, I thought the Y went straight off of the stack I’ll tell you what, we would never get a sewer machine up this line. We would have to clean the sewer from the back “Yeah, I think you have to pull the toilet from the back, right? Yup “For that line, that would just be that one” I didn’t even see that dude uh Tell you what, I gotta do a recon. I’m not liking what I see back there I got some plant life growing back there folks I really need to get back there and see what’s going on with the sewer I’m not out of woods yet on this one We’re gonna fix this water leak next. Can you run the washing machine with the hose in it? “Ok, it’s running now” Alright He denied the replacement, so he got the repair Now on the other hand over here, we got some plant life “You know what that’s a sign of” Silent sewer leak Georgie “What” It’s definitely broken over there. I can hear it “Right back there by- it looked like a 45 or something?” Yup Yeah, there was a broken pipe here, uh Chuck? “You know what you might have to do?” What? “What might be better, if we can cut a hole in the back” No no, we’re doing it right here. I’m telling ‘ya it’s broken right where that paper towel is. See the paper towel hanging? “I see, right up top” Yup So that’s gonna be the problem Set up the Sawzall and I’m gonna dig this up. It should be two sections between the 45, this should be it “I’m gonna need the Sawzall with the Diablo blade” The good thing is I still love plumbing! Alright *George laughs* Oh here’s our hub, alright “Is that the hub?” I got the hub, right here Oh look at that crack! Oh Georgie, we got it! “Alright”

Geez, alright, good Nah, I’m good dude. I’ll be honest with ‘ya- Chuck CB2: “Yeah?” Give me that white tarp right by the door, the entrance and go grab another blue tarp for the doorway CB2: “Got it” What’s that? “Do we have everything?” Dude, alls we need is two Fernco clamps and a Sawzall “Ok” There it is folks. We found the culprit Listen, two Ferncos, oh a tape measure, and uh- we’re gonna get the measurement here. I’m gonna make two cuts I might use the 45, I might not, I’ll let you know in a second. And I’m gonna need the other tarps I’m gonna lay that up here on the side, I’m not gonna lay in this crap That’s a big crack boys and girls Hey George, I will take that little shovel man. The little army one We’re making a cut here After the hub, this is where the crack is right here. This thing’s been cracked for a long time, Georgie First of all I wanna thank Milwaukee for all the battery operated tools under here I’m afraid we’re gonna get some back up here, dude You ready bro? “I can’t, I can’t-” Here, give it here “You get it, it’s got the nuts all the way in the back, I can’t” Oh here it is George, it’s a slot, right here That’s it This slot goes up. Alright, we’re having a learning curve down here folks with the f***ing Milwaukee saw *both laugh* Alright now it’s in, now we can lock it I think. Boy that was luck “Is it in?” It’s in. Alright, here we go Lemme get my gloves back on “Want me to go on the other side?” No, not yet dude It’s f***ing gnarly over there I need that other tarp. Hey Chuck, where’s the white tarp? The one you’re sitting on by the entrance I want that down here, ok? Here we go boys and girls Diablo baby! Ah dude This just snapped There’s so much pressure on this, that it snapped, on the good piece Snapped so I gotta dig back further, but that’s okay for now. Just got to get the other side Alright so here’s what we’re gonna do folks. We’re gonna cut on this 45, cause here’s the end of the crack Here’s the crack into this hub Ain’t got time for all the pretty pictures today boys and girls, I could tell ‘ya that right now, cause this is… What do ‘ya call this George?
