    Re: 4" blow bag for main line soft blockages

    I'm on call 24 hours all week every week. I get every other weekend off though <.<

    I'm hoping we start getting more consistent really busy days so I can add another service truck full time. And by hoping I mean talking to realtors/property managers and trying to make things even busier. I'm tired but my boss thinks it's great.

Then throw in a couple dig ups or re-pipes during the week and you were whooped, I mean aching. We worked long and hard. 12 day schedule with every 3rd night on call 24 hr. Pretty horrendous actually. Thankfully I was younger and could take it but barely. Boy did I feel sorry for some the guys that came from new construction. They often had no clue about the service business. Some of em couldn't even make it 6 months. Bottom line was there's no way a guy could do that for kind of schedule for 20-30 years without completely wrecking his body IMO.

    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

      but it's always more work to have to come back...

      I shove a warthog through a line, if it backs up again anytime soon there is either something wrong with it or something got flushed that shouldn't have been.

      I get a line open with a blow bag and get a call-back, I'm never going to be sure it wasn't from something I missed on the first trip.
      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
