I would not recommend anyone try this idea. It sounds like a good way to make a huge mess.

I for one have never used compressed air to clear a waste line. I can't see how it would work as the compressed air would just go up through the vent before having any effect on the stoppage.

I have seen the mess it can make. 3 story building. Dumbass on the 3rd floor used a shop vacuum( big heavy duty one) to blow out his clogged kitchen drain. Blew it out the vent. Wasn't a pretty site. Kind of like using a blow bag that connects to a water hose. Than can even make a bigger mess
