clogged soil pipe

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
I have a restricted soil pipe. All I have to open it is an electricians fish which isn't enough. I also have a chain, but it's only 12 feet long.

Is it going out to the street where it's clogged?
Maybe rent a soil pipe auger if it is. It may be roots that are restricting the flow.
Or if the restriction or clog is above ground rent one of those pressure cleaners that go on the end of a garden hose. You would lower down from the roof into te stack pipe vent. It has outlets that actually shoot backwards and pull the hose down the pipe with jet action!
