Re: Clean Field Drainage Tile

A few questions here Jim,  When was the tile installed?  Any thoughts on what caused the plug, collapsed , silted in, small water varmint?  I wouldn't have thought you would have problems yet with plastic field tile ( 45 years old at the oldest?)  A year ago I had my tiler hook on to a 10 year old plastic tile and we noticed it was collapsed a little (top down).  I'm a little concerned just how long this plastic tile will work.  I often thought the tile rigs should squeeze the tile  a little with wheels to make it a little elliptical  just before it scrapes dirt on top.

There was an out fit around here a few years back that would use a water jet with high pressure water to un-plug tiles.  Not really sure how well it worked?
