  • Waiver of liability

    Any one make the customer sign a waiver of liability before you cable or jet a sewer line? If so what does it say?

    When jetting, how much psi would it take to blow about a clay sewer?

    Re: Waiver of liability

    no i don't.

    clay will not blow apart. if anything it will spall if a jet is left in the same spot too long. but fortunately the jets we use are too steep an angle. now if you're jetting with a 90 degree jet to the pipe, this can cause damage especially at 4000#.

    clay and plastic clean up real nice with a jetter.

    orangeburg pipe is an issue clay and plastic is a dream. cast is fine but will never be as nice as clay or plastic.

    what are the specs of your jetter?

      I seen clay pipe come apart when a home owner waves down a city guy with a truck jet running 2000 PSI @ 80 GPM. Its the GPM that can start doing some damage.

        Do to the age, condition or inaccessability of the drain line routine cleaning may cause damage to pipe...... not responsible for any water damage that may occur as a result of routine cleaning.

          Re: Waiver of liability

          this is the waiver i use:
          Waver:: xxxxxxxxxx shall be liable for any labor and material cost that is incurred to retrieve any equipment from sewer line that may become lost or un-removable from unforeseen problems in sewer line.
          i was once rodding a sewer with my 1065 and it went through a broken sewer line on a 5yr old house sewer.i asked the homeowner how long it was blocked and if he knew it was broken. he told me it was blocked for about two weeks and the last 5!!!! guys that came out to clean the line told him it was broke. 4 of them had cables broken off in the sewer and this P.O.S. didnt tell anyone it was broke after #1 told him so. thats why i use a waver....ray

            I have never had a issue with this. Couple a time a year we get stuck. We dig it up and bill it out.

              same with us, but sometimes the homeowner thinks that you should dig it up for free because its not their problem....ray

                Always seems that a day or two with no sewer changes their tune.

                    There are 2 forms we use. The Waiver of Right to Cancel. That gets signed before ANY job gets done. The 2nd we call a Hold Harmless Agreement. Dont really get them signed to much on main drains, mostly on old lead lines like bath tubs, lav sinks....specially on 2nd floor main and secondary lines.

                        Have you made sure that the waivers are legit and can stand up in court? I have another business that requires a waiver and most of the time it means nothing.

                          I understand everyone needs to cover your a** but I am thinking that sort of waiver would scare alot of customers off..Just my.02
