I had a call the other day for a clogged sewer line. I get there and there is about an 8 ft radius of 6in deep sewage around the shared clean out (no cap). Its a tri plex and none of the tenants called it in until the third day of not having a usable toilet. It took me about 2-2.5 hours with the snake ($600 ridgid snake from HD) and I ended up pulling some mardi gras beads, a piece of a metal coat hanger, and a sock out of it. All is well now, and everything is flowing fine. Due to the fac that I am not a plumber and plumbing is just one of the many things I do, I dont charge as much as a plumber might, however, I know they are going to complain about what I charge and say its too much. I charged 80 for the clean out and 40 to bag and remove the 6 ft radius of logs and paper. Too little?
No announcement yet.
How much is too little....
