    Re: Pricing scenario

    the template was a cleaver idea.

    but caulking a toilet properly would glue it to the floor and even a hammer would not get it to move.

    this being a tile floor, the caulking would bite very well to the grout and tile.

    there are plenty of toilets that i have to use a putty knife and a hammer to to get them to come undone.

    i do like your idea

    i just find it difficult to justify all the work over a tube of caulking and 24 hours to let it properly dry.

      also, also at the top right corner of this post is my job title--i run the service dept-- we also have an install dept--install does large projects and any project that would consume more than 1 -1/2 days---i have a very swamped service dept--right now and usually all year im booked for about the next 10 days--now i do leave 1 slot open in each servicemans schedule for emergencies--i cant be tied down for that long--id rather bill 7 jobs in a day at 96.50 an hour than be on a quoted project at 75 an hour-----see my point??? call me greedy, but i run a service dept with heavy traffic--my guys are always on the move--we make a real good living

      for a plumber that works by himself and does everything himself,i understand that you dont have a choice , but to do it all--our system works well and we do have over 20,000 customers--we must be doin it right
      I never said what you do is wrong. If it works for you that is great. But the win some lose some mentality is way, way off base. I think you dont fully understand up-front or f.r. pricing. Im sure the company you work for does great, and I think it's awesome that your boss' company has 20,000 customers. I do pretty well for myself too
