Stopped Up Kitchen Sink in Iverness, Alabama
Written by: Robert Polk, Master Plumber
A customer from the Inverness Country Club area called Superior Plumbing & Drain. His kitchen sink was backing up. The pipe was only 2" therefore too small to run a camera. Our master Plumber, Robert, ran a snake through the pipe but could not clear it. The house was built in 1975 & we knew the pipes were cast iron. After all those years the pipes were probably rotten. We used the snake cable to find the part that needed replacing. Using a jackhammer on the floor in the garage, we found 8 feet of rotten pipe. and found rotten pipe 8 feet. We replaced the disintegrating cast iron with 8' PVC pipes.
