Hi, Mike here....

I am a relatively new business owner, and just started my own backflow management business in Illinois.

I am a 3rd generation plumber with over 30 years of trade experience, and know plumbing inside and out.

My primary specialty is backflow inspection, certification, repair and maintenance, and I would love to offer my services to anyone in the Elmhurst area (Illinois).

Feel free to check out my site at: http://addisonbackflow.com

Thanks,
Mike :thumbsup:

It used to be a buck an inch. That was nice, one boiler room could be worth 1500, easy. Now, with about 3000 CCDI's in the state, the price is coming down. I was charging 75 a pop for residential rpz's if they were outside, now I charge 85, but I lose a lot of business to the sprinkler guys, they charge 50.

His test pricing was completely insane. He was charging like 35 or 40 a pop for residential and 75 for commercial.
He was hoping to get massive calls, but sadly even at them rates he can not stay in business. Maybe he was hoping for the rebuilds... or maybe he was the guy that just tagged them with out testing and got busted.
