        as long as you keep it below $500. per customer, per year, you don't.

        stay away from plumbing repairs and make sure you get liability insurance.

        you never know when $hit happens

          I have a Sewer Contractor License but my state doesn't require one.

            If I'm not mistaken your State does not require a Contractor's license for plumbing either.

              Okay now that your class is over we are all awaiting a report of how it went and what was covered? Who ended up attending and will you be posting photos/videos of the group in action? What format did you use and were you able to actually do it in the field or did you stage the jobs ahead of times? As there are at least two classes planned after yours it might be interesting to hear the good and the bad of your class.

              I am not planning a class, but I am planning on laying a bunch of pipe in my yard when I replace the driveway so I can test different cleaning and locating/inspection equipment.

                I've been thinking of doing that to. A kind of drain cleaners play ground.
                Good way to test heads,techniques, ideas etc.. in a controlled environment, which is hard to do in the field since each job is different.

                  My original plan was just to install some copper, plastic and galvanize pipe under the driveway for locating. Then I thought if I installed a couple of dry wells I could pressurized the pipes and do leak locating as well. However, once I saw the drain lines Ridgid set up under the lawn at the factory I decided to add drain lines to it as well. Now the question is how to simulate a stoppage? I'm thinking I may install some Clean Checks then tie the line into my yard drains for draining. It should be a lot of fun if it works out right.

                    It went well and it was "Real World" calls as they came in. You name it we did it We didn`t have any 2 of the same calls in the 2 days we schooled.
                    I`m sure you`ll hear something from Greg soon The other guy worked for my plumber and some times works for me. He wanted to learn so he joined in as well. I may set him up in Wichita with another K-7500 and a truck here real soon.
                    We even did a free job for a woman that use to be homeless that now has a house and is supporting her daughter and 4 grandkids. her brother did all the plumbing and you all know how that went...lol... Anyway we cut the sewer out and reset it to grade and cleared the allenwrench that was causing the blockage
                    Tis the season to be giving
