Attempted to use a small cleanout to clear a partual blockage with a "drain bladder" the drain bladder became seperated from the hose it was connected to and is now stuck in the pipe. Anyone ever deal with this?

How far was it in the drain when it came apart ? What size drain ?

Where were you accessing the drain ? Roof vent, cleanout, etc ?

I accessed from a small cleanout that is probably 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. It probably went 6-8 inches in where it seperated from the hose.

You might could pull it out with a wire coat hanger with a sharp hook bent into it.

Or maybe a shop vac with a 3/4 diameter hose duct taped to the big hose.

I have a set of these, but the longest one is only about 12 inches, it might work. If I had to I would cut off the T handle and weld something longer on. They are called packing pullers, and are flexible to work in tight spaces.Packing puller.jpgPacking puller.jpg
