  • doesn't the hoa dues take care of this?

    had an owner of a condo call me to unplug his toilet. he had attempted to unstop it himself the day earlier and managed to wash the floor and closet below.

    i attempted to offer him help over the phone and save him a call. he insisted that i come over and fix it for him.

    so i head over to his beverly hills 750k. condo and take out my trusty plunger which he already had his 2 in the sink drying.

    so a handful of plunges with my grapefruit style plunger and all was flushing. 1/2 roll of paper and a a few flushes i tell him my bill. $57.50 he's like shocked. "doesn't the hoa dues take care of this"

    only if it was a common stoppage to other units i reply. but this was a local stoppage and i offered to assist you over the phone. he wrote me the check. i guess he feels that it's a building problem and not his own for plugging his own toilet.

    57.50 is not much to pay for me coming there and fixing your plugged toilet.

      Auger toilet, normal hours, $105.
      Pull toilet and get yr daughter's tampon applicator or childs toy out of it, normal hours, $139.
      Off hours add $100.

      I will not twist the key on the van for less than $75.

        Yeah, we'd have started at $70 and worked our way up from there. if he were in any way rude or discourteous it immediately becomes $90
        No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

          Yep. had a neighbor call the other day..Plugged toilet , closet augered and could not relieve stoppage on a Sun. Came back the next day and pulled the toilet ..A diffuser for a blow dryer.I couldn't believe that thing made it's way through but it did..She was wondering where the diffuser went.It was catching paper like nobodys business ..Told her if I had been able to clear the blockage with just an auger it would have been a lot less.She understood.

            I would have gotten a 4 hr minimum, after hours the rate doubles.

                The guy lives in a 3/4 of a million dollar house, and complains about a 57 dollar service charge.

                Classic.
