It just doesnt feel natural to shove anything in the line.
Don't use the crust, or multi grain type bread, and it will all be fine, eventually. You may get some hang up to begin with if it's a big ol' lump of white bread that makes its way down to the valve. But it should dissolve soon enough.

I meant the bread trick.

BTW, I *had* to use 12-grain bread once and it worked. I pulled out the sunflower seeds. The rest held fine.

To others: after using the bread trick, flush it out by opening the closest hose bib, or closest faucet COLD WATER ONLY with the strainer removed.

Oh, then in that case, yes I have tried it and retract my no statement.

This unit that I linked to is designed to stop the flow for PRESSURIZED lines. The bread trick ain't going to work on that.

A co worker that I worked with in plumbing has used it on 4" pipe. He said it worked really good.

I think he said it take to long. He said he was changing out a butterfly valve in a hospital. He said he just had to look in the pipe to see that.
