I work in a smaller community just took over business from my mentor I'm no longer the grasshopper " but far from the master.... my retired boss is one help of a plumber is layout and ability to do " the whole" job in his head before the footing are dug or plans even approved is a inspiration but he never did any drain cleaning in his 40 something years of plumbing and pipe fitting lots of foreman and shop Stewart positions moved from British Columbia to Washington late 90s first time he'd done residential any way long story short I'm now the boss and the only guy within 60 km started getting a lot of calls for plugged drains had no choice bit to refer other guys I wasn't equipped keeping in mind I'm 24 25 in august got. 2 kids and a wife plus 2 mortgages don't have any spare money kicking around. When a customer called me back after my competition had "helped him" short lived by the way. He told me what their initial bill was I was outraged it was quite sick. Any how went and ordered a k49 drill selffeed and a k 750 with 100' of 5/8 and tool kit. I used a old general once not sure of model I used the k49 a few time now seems pretty logical.. invested on a bunch of painters drop sheets a couple rubbermaids.. pick the 750 up on Monday any advise would be extremely helpful and appreciated iv only been plumbing 6 years I'm logical I'm the first to admit I know very little about most things but I like to atleast be well informed. Last but not least I did get an autofeed "asked a previous boss about it he replied what Sean afraid to get your hands dirty that's not like you Haha" are they worthwhile or is it just another part to go wrong and a few more pounds to lug up and down stairs? Last but not least how do you guys charge for drain cleaning , flat rate hourly charge the machine then it labour. Thanks again the rookie
