A property management company called ASAP Drain Guys & Plumbing because of a tenant’s clogged kitchen sink in Carlsbad, CA.
The technician noted that the back-to-back kitchen sink drain line was clogged. He cut into the 1 1/4″ copper drain pipe near the wall to get direct access to make the drop in the back-to-back figure 5 fitting. He ran the 3/8″ cable snake out 60 feet in an attempt to clear the line. The technician was also informed that the overhead drain pipe in garage #7 had a broken under strain of the cable causing several pinhole leaks to appear.
The technician removed the broken section of 2″ copper drain piping in garage #7 and cabled remaining segment of the line using a 1/2″ cable. He hit a hard blockage and cleared it. He found that the pipe was badly back pitched, likely the cause of build up of food debris and the clog.
The drain was tested and is properly functioning at this time. There are no leaks.
