This is a picture of a clogged drain line in Tampa. This piece of pipe was removed from a stack in a high rise building on Bayshore Blvd. It is common for cast iron pipe to accumulate grease over years of use, especially if the drains are never cleaned. In this particular situation, the clogged drain line was on the kitchen stack from the 23rd floor to the bottom floor. We had to cut out a section of pipe and install a clean out. Once we got the clean out installed, we could begin cleaning the pipe with a cable machine. After we cable the clogged drain line we use high pressure water to jet out all the remaining debris. Of course, Tampa Bay Plumbers always video inspects every drain line it works on, so once the line is clear we will perform a TV inspection to make sure their is no problems with the pipe.
