    Not to put down Black Bear Dinners, but you would think someone with a $70,000 ring could pick a better place to eat.

      $5200.00

      8 hours billed work.

      $650.00/hr.

      $800.00 tip.

      Not bad. I think I need to increase my prices.

        "Roberts spotted the ring three hours later, after pushing the camera down 125 feet.
        He decided the only way to safely retrieve the ring would be to dig up the bathroom floor."



        He pulled the commode to run the camera?


        How did they get to the ring from the bathroom floor if the ring was 125 feet away?

          Why did it take 3 hours to push the camera 125 feet?

              That was a nice get & video Rick. Not under a slab though.

              Looks like you might have to go flat rate soon.

                Re: Mr. Rooter...the hero

                I went to a home years ago while working for a "Rooter Co." to see about retrieving a $1500.00 necklace that the lady had accidentally knocked off of the counter into the commode as it flushed.

                I told her it would be $300 for the first hour, $150 for each additional hour , to possibly snag it with a pigtail attachment on cable while watching on camera with no guarantee that we would be able to retrieve it. Even if we could retrieve it, it may come out damaged. Or we could locate with video and dig it up.

                She said "That's O.K., I'll just get my boyfriend to buy me another one"

                    This is what I really think happened...

                    They had a fight.

                    I will show him!

                    Flushhhhhhhh...

                    I am sorry dear, you can keep the ring.

                    Oh by the way,

                      Rick, do you think those customers would have allowed you to call the local media? Talk about great free advertising.

                      I guarantee Mr. Rooter were the ones who called the media.

                      You could still have called them and let the homeowner remain anonymous.

                      Next time maybe.

                      How would you like to be sitting at the table eating dinner and see a plumber on the local news pulling a ring out of a bucket of $h:t water?

                        Re: Mr. Rooter...the hero

                        If Mr Rooter had to dig down125 ft in the bathroom, he is real fast..

                        At least Rick does have a video.

                        I found a few rings over the years, my last ring job the lady new it went in the toilet,, i ended up going in the man hole in the alley with my cable up to the clout by the house and tied a rag onto my cable head [dont got no fancy camera] and pulled it back into the manhole
                        No ring I felt if it was their i would have got it.
                        Went back in the bathroom and found it behind the vanity toekick
                        dont remember the cost less than 200$ and did get 100$ tip

                            that sounds like one big ring,

                            but we have our own ring hero on board,

                              Shame on Mr. Rooter. I could've figured out an easier way to remove a ring from 8' of pipe than jackhammering and cutting out the pipe. They could've gotten that with a micro and a couple extensions, and done it a whole heck of a lot cheaper than $5200
