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

          This thread actually reminded me about this company I used to work for back in the day.

          I used to work for this shop that did a ton of commercial drain cleaning and there used to be this one supermarket that had employees that would always flush paper towels down the drain.

          The nice part was that it used to happened so often and the stoppage always would be in the house trap.

          So as tech's we kinda liked paper towels because one a week we would get a easy job and have to drive to the supermarket just to unclog the house trap

          Maybe paper towels are the new Stimulus for Plumbers

            Lately I've seen a lot of wipes, like makeup remover wipes.
            This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

              This was loaded open clean out on wye to access inside main packed to the cap
              Open clean out at foundation 25 feet away packed to the cap.
              Had to be packing up for months. House trap would have been easy but no house trap. Just packed like an 85 foot egg roll
              Most paper towels I have ever removed.

                  Ya, I bet, not only are people getting lazy-er they are also getting careless, like for example flushing all kinds of crazy things.

                  It's all good news for Plumbers

                    Re: So you think it's ok to fush paper towels?

                    Seems every new hygiene product is now "flushable"

                    That doesn't mean it makes it's way to the street main

                    It's all my fault really....

                    For years I asked for a paper towel that didn't turn to shreds after 30 seconds.

                    Now I got what I wanted

                    $$$$$

                      Those so called flush-able wipes are a big money maker for us
                      We had one house that we were there once or twice a week for a month.
                      com stopped up or the sewers backing up...2600$$ later...
                      the Dr cut her off..
                      went there last week because the shower door came off the track
                      i looked over by the com and every thing was cleared out of their and the tp was very thin

                              While not paper towels, I opened up a septic tank with the HO there to find a 3' thick mat of nothing but cigarette butts. This dude must have stood in the can all day and chain smoked. He said "Uh, I guess I won't do that anymore". I said "Thank You" and then proceded to work my *** off to get it all stirred up and into the truck.
