Broken Drain Auger
Posted by Glenn on December 07, 2003 at 21:03:03:
Any one know of any tricks to remove an auger tip that has broken off in a main sewer line.

I've got the old clay pipes that just welcomes roots through all the joints. I usually have to clean it once maybe every 9-12 months. Worked well for about 16 years. But tonight I hit a spot that apparently broke the spiral tip off the auger. Did not really notice it till I pulled it back in. I thought about just running a regular garden house down and just pushing it on to the sewer. Any suggestions from some of you more experienced guys would greatly be appreciated! Thanks.
