I downloaded the PDF manual for the machine and read through it once I had the "Electric Eel" set in the yard (a friend came over to help me unload it). I sussed out the most important parts of the operation, positioned it properly, and was finished within 30 to 45 minutes. I wasn't timing myself, but it wasn't long. I cleaned up a bit (hosed off the snake in the cage it rolls up in) and rolled the machine to the side of my driveway. After Antonio finished the next job he was working on he came by again with his truck and trailer and rolled it easily up onto the trailer bed. I met him at Home Depot and had it turned in with more than an hour to spare. I gave the man at the rental desk two of my homemade cloth 3D face masks. He is big and has a beard and the disposable masks just don't fit well. Mine are kind of bright, that may take a little getting used to!
Now I need to soak and scrub the bathtubs. The plumber is $250 to $300 for the most bare bones running the snake job. This cost me $85 (I paid $10 for the "just in case you break something" insurance).
Now I'll work in the yard a bit before all of my clothes go into the laundry. It was generally pretty clean but as the snake retracted there was some slight splashing.
