I just got a Saturday Emergency call (oh well there goes my 1 day off) Lady needs a bid to repair or replace the sewer and it is broken under the driveway, sounds like a good pipe burst job so I role out to give a bid. Get there they point to the driveway say the moto scooter camera guy had left and had verified what their snake guy had said "major pipe break under the cement driveway 8 feet down" And they could start right away for 15k. It is a rental owner is going out of the country tomorrow just wanted a couple bids. I say I need to camera the line since no video was made or left. I say it's free I need to know depths and locations to give a proper bid. ( I love my seesnakes!) Anyway long story short I find a few small offsets none under the driveway that section was fine. No roots at all, no bellies, no build up of debris. They watched me camera it and asked questions while I did it. No emergency work was needed, they should budget for a future repair. They asked what my charge was since they just spent $800 on snaking and camera work, "I said nothing, call when you need me" She shoved $20 in my pocket for gas and said "Thanks! In the future I will just call you"
No announcement yet.
Moto Scooter strikes again!
