Ah hem, gulp; well someone didn't tape over his 3" 90 UG service pvc and I'd bet I'll find it full of water tomorrow. Looking for tips on getting it out. I may have to fire myself . Thanks

There is few tricks you can try get most of the water out of the conduct

1} use shop vaccum to suck much water as possible

2} use the compressed air to blow the water out [ make sure no one is standing on the oppstite end other wise will get soaked from " fontaion " or shower ]

but dont expect to get all of the water out of the conduct 100 percent of it espcally if run in UG set up

Merci , Marc

Pas de problme,il marche n'est-ce pas?"(No problem, it works doesn't it?)

Use shop vac and a conduit mouse, should do a reasonable job.
