    I just saw it. Looks like he got it figured out. Glue joint failed on the abs flange is what it looked like.

    Abs sucks. Why is it used outside a mobile home?

    What's wrong with abs?
    I prefer pvc for its straightness but an abs glue joint doesn't "fail". It wasn't glued properly to begin with.

    While in college I worked at Home Depot and an older gal came in one day panting like a dog asking where the toilets were. A few minutes later a page went out for a spill. She apparently lost the war and left a shit trail from the carpet dept to the restroom. An hour later a call was being made for a plumber, she flushed her panties down the toilet. The weird part is no one ever saw her leave. The plumber said this is very common and a good way to ruin a Sunday

    Where I work we have rv dumps and have had problem in years past with things like this clogging the box trap screens. Our cure was to install catch bars where the rv hose goes in. Now when something large like that is dumped, the bars usually catch it and the person dumping gets wet feet when it backs up. The concrete slabs are tapered to the inlet so the mess stays contained.

    We've found just about anything you can imagine in the box traps from rocks to silverware to adult diapers to clothes...even the "slinky" hoses they use to transfer their tank contents.
