Hey man don't worry it'll pay off... maybe offer yosur services to other plumbing companies that dont have that equipment... sometimes it pays to work with others.. camera is a must if you plan on roughing in a bathroom in basement....

I know you dont like being involved with other companies but sometimes it can pay off.. my motto is never burn a bridge and respect all around..

It's not friendly territory around here. I haven't met any decent plumbers or honest companies in my area. They all seem to offer camera services too. I don't refer to any other company and no one refers to me. I'm stuck in service work and a little lateral drain lines but I get mostly people who'll pay for 2-3 hours of work.


I'm called for estimates all the time for rough ins and its a waste of time. No one pays for my time, and if I do it for free all the others charge half and hack it big time. I've been to many renos where they call me to fix some issues from the last plumber. Not too long ago a full kitchen gut and I was called 2 weeks after the job was done!

It'll happen Tango if you provide a better service than those other guys...

eventually people realize you get what you pay for.. were middle of the road I think but were not all that cheap...

However, we find that other people that have had sewer problems enough eventually find us and we take care of them.. most of our guys do a good job and if it plugs up again I usually get sent back and do a through job..

Your camera one day will pay for itself just keep positive your business is still in its infantcy and when word of mouth starts rolling you will be busy... those companies that hack it usually dont last too long...

Your right mainlines can be a tough thing to deal with when your by yourself... but in drain work thata where you can charge the most... when there is turds on the floor people freak out and they need someone now! But if you like installing fixtures and finishing and stuff or doing a rough in here or there that's good to..

Do what you like doing it's too hard to do everything.. unless you got 15 employees to do it for you then that's a different story... Our company tries to do everything but still there is something were just not setup to do...

We dont do any new construction because my boss says I'm not letting a builder build their houses with my money and it's TRUE...

So we strictly do service mostly high-rise plumbing , residential plumbing and not much but a bit of commercial stuff... once and a blue moon some industrial but we dont really like doing that stuff..

Drain cleaning wise we have everything pretty much just dont do lining and we dont have a crawler.. so basically 12" and below we clean and max 10" we can video up to let's say 200'
