        Hey Rick,

        I am in the valley, but work often in the South bay, Hollywood, and Glendale/La Crescenta areas. Yes I agree apartment work can suck when you have to shut down a whole building to change an angle stop among other things that can happen

              Along with "don't flush"

              Fun times working on any portion of the sewer with a tenant upstream. I have literally had a toilet flushed in my face.

                But did you swallow

                All it takes is 1 drop of the good stuff to get you sick and have the $hits.

                How do I know

                  Yes but Rick can make and drink milkshakes with drain cleaning equipment - how cool is that.

                  I don't clean drains but I got sick once by accidentally ingesting wash water while cleaning my concrete mixer after a project. Not sure what the mix consisted of but I was sick for a few hours.

                      Gargling waste water is optional. Don't let these guys talk you into it.

                        Funny thing, I had to work on something similar Friday and remembered what you said, so I got a 4" jim cap and put it on the upstream side. I kept clean, but when I let the jim cap off, better believe there was stuff ready to come out
