      AND ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THE $49.99 S**T

      Give me a break! Can we get back to some professional drain service talk here.

      Instead on taking off the last 2 letters of rooter-mania, How about just adding a C.

      Good morning.. jr.... yes that is real...... when I started out in the biz we were getting $ 50.00 for a Main drain clog.... $ 35.00 for a secondary line.

      By the way do you have any pics of your pretty little drum machines with some smeg on them.....

              Equipment is expensive, sewers are nasty. I charge $136 for a outside cleanout, more if I have to go inside. And as I have posted before that is very reasonable for this area. One company charges $300+ minimum to do any sewer cabling.

                yall are very lucky that way in the Carolina's.....i heard in the north carolina/south carolina and georgia area it is like that...perhaps the highest in the nation....a drainguy i know in georgia say charging $275-$350 is avreage for cableing a sewer there he charges $700 to hydrojet ANY sewer line residentila OR commercial....so i guess it depends on where you are located.....isnt U.S. Jetting Headquarters stationed in Georgia...and Harben ...maybe this is why they are there!!!....Also you dont need any license to unstop drains in Georgia thats why the guy i was mentioning MOVED down there from Pennsylvania i think...he owns Drain-O-Might and was featured in the Cleaner Mag before....cool guy to talk to......

                  EXACTLY what crossed my mind as soon as I saw this thread.
                  I worked for a major retail chain for a month one summer doing carpet cleaning when I was 19.
                  I was paid commisions only, what I got paid for the requested work was pathetic, it actually came to less than min wage while on the job and I got NO drive time.
                  I was paid 4 times more commissions on add-ons...so when I showed up you were informed that additional deoderizers & special cleaning compounds as well as scotchguard were absolutely necessary...thats what I was trained to do.
                  They called it "selling".

                  I got disgusted with lying to make a paycheck and left.

                  There is NO such thing as a free lunch, period.

                              i called them up about 2 months ago, think i spoke with owner or manager. I asked what if you have to go in with a snake to get out a lot of roots is it still 49.99? He told me yep. is 49.99 in each direction of trap, but for as many times that it takes. Have heard of companies that charge their said price for each time they put snake back in to line
