I appreciate all the comments but I don't know how a hand snake will help. I've used a heavy duty snake that I had to wheel in the house the last time around and don't believe it helped much. I believe the 3 feet of pipe in the wall from the sink tie into what I would call a stack and like the idea of snaking it from the roof.
Would my snake attachment for the drill be ok? I want to say it's either 15' or 30' in length. My main concern is if I could do any damage running the snake down the stack from the roof.
When I use the snake attached to the drill I just hit a spot where the snake goes no further regardless of how fast I have the drill going. It's either horribly blocked where the sink pipe in the wall connects with the stack or something is going on in the stack.
