Long afternoon followed by takeout dinner and a beer. The drain rooter device was harder to use this time, the block seemed to be bigger, and it kept getting snagged. I finally rocked it enough to get through, but the cable had a twist in it in the mechanism from whoever used it last and I couldn't get it to clear out any further than the initial blockage. The blade came out broken, half had broken off somewhere in the process, so who knows how good that cleanout was.

And I couldn't get the machine up into the SUV by myself so my friend came over and we ended up pulling an old door from the garage (stacked to the side, it used to be an outside door on the house but was dented during the 2005 burglary). We made it into a ramp and pushed the machine into the back of the SUV. Whew!

Time to go wash the tub and have a good hot soak.
