Went to a job tonight that I had done before, I look the job over and see it is stopped the same as it was a year ago. He put the line in him self it starts out from the house as 4" and 15' from the tank he hooked it up to a 3" he had for a trailer so we got 4" to 3" not good! but he wont replace it. The line is 150' from the house CO. to the tank but from the 3" CO. it is maybe 15'. The last time we had to go in the 3" CO to get it open as the connection he put in wont let the cable go to the stoppage, so this time I try to go through the 3" CO first. The customer tells me there never was a clean out there and we never did it that way the last time he said he was there all the time we were working. I asked my son didn't we go through the 3" clean out the last time ? he said that was the way he remembers it. HO says no there is no place to get in to the pipe there I say well lets open the tank lid and check it and run it from there HO says no you didn't do it that way You went from the house clean out . Well we will run that line too but we want to get the water going first so it will wash out, again no You didn't do it that way the last time. So we drill down to the 3" and it is a dead stop no water moving we pull cable out put in blow bag and turn on water. HO comes running up saying water is coming up out of the ground went down with shovel and dug down and find the 3" CO. I run the 15' while my son is putting up the extra cable I get it open in 10 minutes HO asks why I didn't use that 3" CO first I just wrapped up, thanked him for the job, and after we got down the road I give my son a lesson on cussing and charging extra. Boy's do it your way your not doing you or your customers a good service if you don't.
