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

          Now that's a good point ..They have fuc* ed more shi* up over the years and gotten away with it more than most utilities and that's ok...Bull shi*..sorry I have to rant

            Another reason to adapt different drain cleaning practices, instead of starting with a root saw or a big c-cutter, a smaller 4 blade is ran thru the line as a probe and to get the line flowing, then a camera is sent down to see what the problem is, if no gas or hi speed cable is found the operater may use a larger blade for the final clean. This of course makes the tech have to charge a little more to the customer but safety has been maintained and the procedure will stand up in court. A jetter would be another option. This all means not just any hack can clean drains because of the extra equipment needed.
            Sure, the single Mom should pick up Your camera fee because the Gas Co. Might have swissed cheesed Her line !
            NICE !!!!!

              STOP THE PRESSES.

              got a call today from a 3rd party conducting a survey concerning the letter the gas company sent out. they even recorded our conversation.

              i went on the attack. even gave them my direct number to have the big wigs call me from the gas company.

              told them it's not our responsibility to start looking for their mistakes. they should be able to pull up a data base of every gas line they pulled in by trenchless methods. at that point they notify the customers and arrange a free video inspection of their line to rule out any problems.

              lets see if they bother calling me. i also gave them this link to the forum and told them about all the other plumbers here and overseas that are chiming in.

              put it back into their laps and not mine.
