- Anyone got their rod stuck down their drain?
Has the blockage cleared? If so try flushing some water down you may have a bit of debris caught behind the brush. Otherwise a misaligned or broken pipe. In which case time for brute force and agnorance pull with steadily increasing force till the brush comes free or breaks. 50/50 chance you will need the drain checked. Next time use the screw end. I have no qualifications to post on this subject.Posted 5 years agotomkertonMember
No but word of warning, I have snapped a set of rods in the drain, the brass collar failed.
Had to dig to the joint and get a drains man to break the pipe to retrieve the plunger and rods. Expensive, time-consuming and annoying.
Go careful, and if it’s stuck fast get a local independant bloke round (forget dynorod and the rest) to see what he can do and possibly CCTV/jetblast or otherwise sort the problem.
I feel your pain, good luck.Posted 5 years agoaustinburnerSubscriber
Hi all,Posted 5 years ago
Thanks for all your worthy support & suggestions.
Got an expert in & he found a manhole half way down the garden. When he lifted it, there was my rod end with the brush head – Doh!
Anyway, rods removed & blockage now gone thanks to the experts.
Will approach drains with a lot more caution in the future!
