  • i need to pick up the kids from school

    1:49 pm. new customer with main line stoppage and no cleanout.

    needs to leave to pick up the kids from school, by 2:30.

    that's 41 minutes to clear a main line with no cleanout.

    roof top 4'' vent pipe and k-60 and little giant.

    2:17 pm. you can lock up the house after you flush the toilets and test the showers and tubs

    stoppage at 58' and ran 90' total. pulled back roots.

    cleaned up and put away the tools. 2:30pm

      no pictures this time. i figured the owner had too many pressing issues for me to ask her to snap my photo

      maybe i will start to bring a mini tripod next time

        you could always have Adam or Ben be your PR man. give them both a camera and they could be your paparazzi
        the only dumb question is the one that is not asked!

          problem is they both have k-60's and love them

          adam is camera shy in front and behind the camera and ben and i would just end up arm wrestling. the drains would never get cleaned

          plus unlike a drum machine on a roof, i do it by myself and the customer is more than happy to take my picture

            I think he should call Bear Grylls and find out what kind of tripods he uses to film Man v. Wild.

              Instead of Bear Grylls he should call Les Aspin from Survivorman. Man vs. Wild has a camera crew; Survivorman does not.

                Some of the PTZ video cameras have a feature that will allow the camera to follow a subject, if you set the camera up to do that. It is called "Auto Motion Tracking".

                May be Rick could look into that and he could set up a tripod and a PTZ video camera and he could film the entire operation by him self, and then post them, on you tube.

                If interested do a search on ( PTZ camera auto tracking )

                one more Idea would be to use a "helmet cam" or similar and we could get the view of what he is seeing in the process. (they make some that just use a head band), I am not sure if they head bands say "Ridgid" or not on them tho.

                        the short version main line stoppage, no cleanout, roof vent and only 41 minutes before the owner had to leave to go pick up the kids from school.

                        k-60 to the rescue with time to spare

                        you sure you didn't understand

                          No offense intended, I just couldn't see a reason for posting it.

                          I'm sure I have a few too.

                            that's because you don't own a k-60

                              Doubt I ever will.

                              I have been looking at drums lately.
