Engineering Tech A Q & A Forum devoted to Engineering Issues that don't necessarily fall into Aircooled or Watercooled Tech. Got a problem? Or an engineering question? Even a buildings or property engineering question? Then ask in here. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Like Sol suggested, but with a cork screw on the end.

It can be a long tedious job, and best carried out by someone with dainty, dexterous digits

some strong fishing wire and a multi headed fisishing hook down the centre of the bendy spring that was touching the blockage?

Drainage guy came on Tuesday afternoon. He had an extra posh electric bendy spring thing. That went down the pipe and flushed out a few cotton pads out downstream. Nothing major came out though. Not really sure what's gone on with it now. We've been using it since then and it all seems back to normal. Don't know if it was just a bog roll blockage that sorted itself out, or whether the acid stuff I put down managed to do the trick? Anyways, all seems good at the minute. Will keep an eye on it. Drainage fella charged me 20, the robbin' git Mind you he talked the arse off me for about 30 mins after seeing the LT camper van and beetle.

Did he put a camera in? You may have tree roots in the pipe causing the pads to snag.
