This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Plumbing.
In this Badge Bit, you will unclog a drain with a zip tool. (Note that this BB is part of a 6-part choose your own adventure list BB called the Tiny List. You must complete six Badge Bits in the Tiny List.)
To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are you must unclog a clogged drain, using a zip tool.
To document this BB, post pictures or a 2-minute video depicting the following:
- Before: A Clogged Drain
- Action: You in progress of using the zip tool on the clogged drain
- After: Your previously clogged drain, now draining properly
I realized that I already did this for the nest badge, but since it applies here too, here are the visuals of what was done. The shallow clog of water is hard to see since it wasn't a full clog so much as a slow drainage at the time though.
The kitchen sinks were backing up and draining really slowly thus becoming a badge bit opportunity! I wasn't sure if it was the P trap or a line clog farther on. I started with getting out my long zip tool to run it down the line. To get into the pipes I needed to open up a section you can see in the back of the second photo to get access to the pipe after all front pipe squiggling stuff.
