      years ago, drain cleaning was about 10% of my income.

      now drain cleaning and sewer related work is 75% of my income.

        Currently I am about 30% drain work (drain-cleaning, video-inspection and repipes, replace sewers),
        35% emergency plumbing repair (busted pipes, PRVs, broken hose bibbs, leaky water heaters) and 35% faucet, toilet, fixture repair/replacement.

              We don't do any plumbing we give all the plumbing work back to the plumbers that give us their drain cleaning work. Everyone is happy that way.

                    look what i got rick.

                    can i be part of the crew now?

                    i heard it's not the size of your tool but how you use it.

                    i found these at the mall (dump).

                    i can fix the electric one model K-37.

                    the handcrank i'll leave as is and put that in my old tool collection.

                    are you supposed to pre-head these darn things before trying to clear ice from the drain?

                      vince, the k-37 is old school. there is a chuck conversion to adapt the slide chuck to a keyless chuck, like the hand cranker.

                      not even sure if the k-37 has a slide chuck.

                      first thing is to clean the drum and toss the cable. grease the slide chuck and see how it runs. be careful as this drill is actually to strong for the cables.
