    Re: Pro Plumbing Discussion

    Pipestone... all is well again. Made the change and it was reacted to negatively. We are back to square one except for Ask the Plumbing Experts being at the top of the list.

    Sorry for the scare.

Personally, if some want their own forum, let them start one of their own. I think there might be quite a howl at Ridgid if this forum starts getting split up. Besides, how are you going to determine who is a real PRO? In my area, if you own a pipewrench, a saw, and a can of glue you can paint a sign on your truck and you are a plumber. I will venture a guess that I am not alone.

      Rick I`m with ya I hate to charge for a 5 minute repair or a simple toilet stoppage.
      I tell em how I do it and call me back if it dont work.

      When I show up, I push the plunger 1,2,3 times and I`m done. They never ***** about paying me $70.00 to do it because I tried to help em save money before I showed up. Seem`s to make em happy knowing that I tried to save em a buck or 2 before I charged em

        That's some great attitude you got. You almost sound like a Doctor! Maybe it's hard for some of the Pro's to remember when they didn't know what they were doing and how desperate that clogged toilet can make you feel? I hope there's always enough business to allow you to give folks a break like you described before you charge them for a job well done. God Bless You.

          I run my business the same way as you guys, let the home owner do the easy stuff by coaching them a bit.
          They will eventually call me for the hard stuff, along with their extended family, friends, and co-workers.
          Heck, I even gained a few great General Contractors this way.
          The way I look at it is: 5-10 minutes of my time = to thousands in profits.

            I've always enjoyed helping the ones who want to try it on their own. As a matter of fact I had a radio show named "Home Improvement" before Tim Allen was even around. People would call to ask questions regarding repairs and I did my best to talk them through it. Many of them called me later to do the tougher project they did not want to handle on their own. The show got me a lot more work than it ever lost me.
