    same thing here. a few weeks back i had my 2nd best $$ week followed by my 2 worst. right now it's relatively steady but i'm about 20% - 25% off from last year.

    In the never ending struggle to keep the water flowing.... The Poo Poo Cowboy rides again!!!

      It has been up and down for us as well. Couple weeks ago had a great week, then it slowed right on down. Just keeping semi-busy enough.

        Had a crummy June here. July so far has been great "knock on wood"

        Over all yearly sales are up. I just need more volume of calls to start profiting and buying a new camera. I seem to just pay bills and stay open.
        Average ticket is about $225.00.
        Sucks when you do three and then nothing all week. I'm used to working in the Boston area I would do 8-11 calls per day. not 10-17 per month. But Population in my area is small. Compared to the 2+ million I served in Boston
        MT. Washington Sewer & Drain Cleaning
        Serving Berlin, NH and North Conway, NH areas

        Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.

          The same thing happened to me last year. The entire month of July, not one call. August came and I was turning people away because I was so busy. It's for this very reason I decided to stay in the military until I can retire. If this was my only source of income, I would've gone crazy.

          I just moved to CA and I'm trying to get my foot in the door but it's hard. I just can't be in a rush to do everything at once.
          Buy cheap, buy twice.
