    Hi,

    What do you do to prevent from getting clogged or repair a clogged sewer line when kids put rocks approximately 1.5" in diameter in the sewer hookup pipe which get stuck at the p-trap?

    Thank you

    Well, the very first thing you do to solve the problem is tie them kids to a tree that has an ant bed at the bottom of it! After they high step a bunch of ants for an hour or two, they'll become model citizens! :clown:

    You could use a plumber's snake to dislodge or loosen them, but it would take a lot of water to force the rocks to move down the line.

    You might be looking at disassembling the whole sewer system.

    The only "prevention" is to NOT put rocks where they don't belong.

    Ken, if you are serious, you will need to disassemble the P traps and clean them out. Then somehow prevent the kids from putting them there.
