I had a call to night the customer had a toilet stopped up. I got there found the toilet clogged and went to the basement to find the clean out. I found it inside a very nice looking cabinet half way up the wall just big enough to hide the clean out, There was no room to reach in with a wrench to take it off and even if I did there was no way to get a bucket under there to catch the backed up water.Need less to say I had to abandon that nice clean out and dig down out side and cut in to the pipe to clean it out.More time and more money, last night I saw one behind a wall so it was hid. I keep running in to this more and more,On some I have to take down part of the wall some times the cost of getting to the clean out is more then the cleaning.What do they think the clean out is for?. I have had calls from old customers that have good clean outs but they have so much stuff piled up that it takes longer to clear a spot then to clean the drain. I am thinking that I will start going to clubs and speaking about how to save money when you call a repair man I think it would be good advertisement and help the home owners save some money,
No announcement yet.
clean outs that you cant get to
