  • I love Orangeburg pipe!

    It was somewhat slow today. This evening I get two emergency sewer calls...both cable and camera work...both orangeburg. I left at 5:30 pm, got home at 9:00 pm with good money (no materials except a single wax ring) and a high chance of replacing one of the lines soon.

    Video-inspections + Orangeburg pipe = $$$

    Heck yeah that stuff has job security written all over. Although I did learn my lesson a few years back about not sending a warthog on a jetter down the line to cut out some roots lmao

      Do you do camera inspections on all your main line cleanings?

          So do you offer a camera inspection as an additional cost or is just included in your main line cleaning?

            Its a small extra charge, but I have gotten to where I quote a price with inspection included on every sewer stoppage. IF they complain and are cheap, then I may offer to cable without camera. (and therefore without warranty)

                Gotcha. From what I've seen on some videos from YouTube and knowing how old pipes can fall apart, I can see a snake getting caught so easily. It looks like a camera is a must for almost all main lines, unless the customer can't afford it.

                  The interesting thing about cameras and warranties is that, at least the way I do it, putting a camera in a line after I've cleared it mostly just warranties that if there is a comeback, the customer will get charged. If I find something to worry about, I will fix it. If I don't, I know the line was clear and clean and well sloped when I left it, so no uncertainty about I might have left something if they plug it up again.
                  This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

                    If you have a camera give it away as often as you can ,if you are geared to perform and excavation. If you are able to dig than this is your ability to be really profitable. More cameras Means more clean outs more jet work.
                    Period.
