He Uses A Tire To Store Roto Rooter

"It makes Roto Rooter lines much easier to handle and store," says Tom Hicswa, Hammonton, N.J., who stores Roto Rooter lines for cleaning sewer lines in an old 15-in. tire, with drain holes drilled into it.
  He simply drilled a series of 1 1/4-in. dia. holes about 12 in. apart all the way around the circumference of the tire. When he's done cleaning out a sewer pipe, he disconnects the 10-ft. sections of line and coils them one after another inside the tire. Then he uses a hose to wash it off. The water drains out through the holes in the tire.  
  "It keeps all the lines neatly stored in one place and off the ground, out of the dirt and water. And it's always ready for the next time I need it," says Hicswa. "I use the Roto Rooter on a sewer line that runs from my house to my septic tank, and also occasionally to help neighbors. Once I've coiled the Roto Rooter inside the tire I roll it into my barn or pickup until the next time I need it. The tire doesn't take up much space."
