      sometimes it's just a matter of turning on the disposal and holding down the stopper

            Really don't know, whenever I show up, the clog just clears. Clogged drains fear me. I am known as the "Clog Whisperer".

              My fastest time from the truck showing up to the truck with the check is 20 minutes. She's a repeat customer of mine and has a bad spot 10' from the c/o. I come out there once a year. I'm not sure for a secondary line but they usually take longer than a mainline.

                Did a shower drain yesturday with my shop vac took about 5 minute to get to the job about two minutes to look at the drain and unscrew the cover and notice that the 2 inch drain was bushed down to 1 1/2 inch pipe. Knowing that I dont have they proper cable for my K60 yet for 1 1/2 traps spent another 2 minutes walking out to the truck and grabbing my shop vac bringing it back into the hose and pluging it in. About 30 seconds of running the vac in the drain. Then about 2 minutes of running water to make sure it was clear. So in all had about 11 1/2 minute on the job maybe 13 once I carried my tools back to the truck.
                Does this count or just when you are running a drain cleaning machine ?
                Ohh I take that back I whent to a job once where a little old lady had a tub drain that had been blocked for about two days before her landlord call me to take care of the problem me and my brother carried in the K38 to clear the line when we noticed that her trip lever on her overflow was in the up position took less than a second to push it into the down position and the tub drained great.

                  one wasn't actually a blockage. older west indian lady calls and says the new kitchen sink her son just installed won't drain. i show up and both tubs are about 2/3s full of grey soapy water. undo the p trap and get about 6 drops of water in the bucket. odd i think so i button the trap back up and reach into one of the tubs and remove the basket stopper. whoosh the water drains. do the same on he other side and whoosh goes the water.

                  this lady had never had a strainer/stopper in any kitchen sink. she never realized the stoppers had been pushed down and sealed the tub. she was so embarrased. BTW, i didn't charge her but was given 2 Johnny Cakes to take with me

                  total time was about 5 minutes. we chatted for about 15 minutes before i headed off ththe next job.

                  the other one was a shower not draining. by the time i drilled out the wallowed screws, and pried the grouted screen out probabluy 30 minutes had passed. i was greeted with a wad of hair that looked like one of Rick's pix of a root ball from a 3" line. 30 sewconds with the hemostats, 30 seconds plunging, 2 minutes running water, and the name of a mason to fix the bolloxed drain and i was out of there. IDID charge for that one.

                    well technically you didn't clear the drain

                    you cracked the pipe/ board

                    i actually cleared the stoppage

                        An 87 year old woman called me with a tub drain problem yesterday. I walked in the bathroom and flipped the lever on the tub drain
                        Seem`s she must have bumped it getting out of the tub and shut it off

                          I forgot my stopwatch on this one.
                          The time it took to open the plug on a lav trap and watch the half sized toothbrush drop out along with wondrous soap scum and narly hairball.

                          Couple of disposals that went lightening quick too.
