  • Shots for Drain guys

    Out of curiosity... what is the typical set of vaccinations someone should have before getting into drain cleaning and inspection?

    Hepatitis is all I can think of off the top of my head.

            And make sure you thoroughly clean your hands with an antibacterial hand wash after every job and before you get into your truck.

              honestly i think the reason why some of us are immune from the common cold is the fact that we are exposed to all the stuff and never truly clean it off or hands and body

              except make sure you don't smile when jetting overhead drains

                And know what your jetting.
                I read a case study that involved a large amount (500gal ???) of disease tainted blood being discharged from a lab at the same time city workers were jetting the main. The workers became quite alarmed when they realized the over spray they were breathing in was full of tainted human blood.

                I often wonder if we should be wearing respirators when jetting giving all that we are exposed to being turned into a fine mist, and what better port of entry then our respiratory system???

                    Hmm...shots for drain guys...

                    I pretty much stick to whisky, generally bourbon, sometimes singlemalt scotch if I'm in a slow sipping mood.

                              Shots? I never thought about that. I used to get bumps under my tongue after doing main sewers. No matter how many precautions I took. I suspect I was inhaling germs and bacteria. These days that doesn't happen anymore.

                              After reading the response posts, I think I should go get some shots. Hepatitus and Tetanus, and whatever else they think.
