      It all depends on what you already have and do not have, as well as what you might need another of.

      For me I would there are two things I am looking to get when things pick up for us.

      First is a ProPress rig. I do not do any new construction but for service this thing is a gem. No more waiting to freeze a line or worrying the frozen line will defrost while you are running a torch. Also no more having to drain down a large building. The time and aggravation this tool can save me makes it worth its weight in gold.

      Second thing is either some upgrades to my old trailer jetter, or a new trailer jetter. I am not one of these guys that believe in super high psi with OK flows. I like average psi with real strong flows.

      Now if the funds was large enough I would get into a relining system.

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

            I'd likely buy a camera.

                      Maybe it would be easier for you to tell us what you don't have/or want and we could help from there?

                          I'm getting lazy. I'd buy a helper. But they're so expensive, and you usually spend more time fixing them than using them.

                          This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
