Plumber Notes: Pulled toilet in men's room on 15th floor in attempt to clear stoppage. Stoppage was located between men and women's Bathroom, and inside of a 4" Cast Iron Twin Ell fitting. We were able to determine this by using the sewer camera and locator, then cutting an access whole above the toilet to look into the wall at the plumbing. It was also found that the upper right bolt on the Cast Iron Closet Saddle has become loos, which caused potentially lead to the toilet falling off the wall in the future. It is recommended to update the Saddle ASAP to prevent any possible injury or damage. We were finally able to clear stoppage with 7/8 K 60 Cable, however please note that the interior of the cast Iron pipe is full of Rust and Scale flaking. This is indicative that the pipe has reached the end of its lifespan, and needs to be updated ASAP. We cannot warranty the stoppage due to the Age of the pipe, as well as the Cast Iron Twin Ell used to connect the two bathrooms. Both these factors place a server limit on how effective any future drain cleaning methods will be.
