    I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

    what about by the hour

    years ago there were lots of companies that charged by the foot.

    what a scam. they always seemed to run a full drum. sometimes 2

    i get a kick when i go to a new home and they tell me that the last guy ran 150' from the c/o. funny as the city main is only at 60'

    my main line cleaning is based on the first hour. 90% of my residential lines are 1 hour or less.

    phoebe it is

          flatrate by the job...depending on access.
          A kitchen drain is one price.
          A mainline from outside cleanout up to 100' is another price.
          Beyond 100' is extra.
          Difficult access (roof, etc.) is extra.
          Pulling a toilet for access adds on to the price, which of course includes a reset with warranty.
          Video Inspection is antoher price.

          Altogether I have about a dozen different drain cleaning prices depending on the job.
          An easy tub stoppage or toilet auger is the cheapest,
          and the most expensive would be a 200' sewer run from a toilet access with video-inspection.
