That was pretty weak. I wanna see them show how it really goes down. Crawling around under a flooed mobil home at 3 AM. Or running water lines in a 150 degree attic. Than having the HO trying to jew you down on the price after you already quoteded them upfront.

I agree. Since when do you need two plumbers on a plugged toilet call? But it is plumbing related, sort of.

I use to tell my guys we aren't cops you don't need partners.

I can't believe they would make a show out of that guy. Who does a service call like that without a drop cloth or something. Then the whole time he is clearing the water closet, water is still leaking on the floor.

Never heard of a shop vac, I guess.

Geez, I'd have to charge a fortune if I had two guys at every job! Just to auger a toilet? Wow.

And I've seen it - I once watched a Mr. Rooter team of three guys in filthy shirts replace a 4' piece of 4" C.I. with ABS right out in the open, all of them trying to force it into place because it was cut too long. Now that takes three guys!

I've seen guys come out to rod a sewer with two other bums in the truck. I'd wager they weren't even registered apprentices, and I can't imagine having to pay their wages for the $120 it took to rod the sewer.

Toilet install for 400? wut? and with a helper? wut?

Good concept and video all around. New characters, and new story line would be better than that. If Sims and I did a vid like that, the whole thing would be beeped out!!!

I think that was for the toilet AND install. I guess that's how Boston plumbers do it :no:

There's no way I could put a good toilet in for $400. Did they not clean up after. We always try to leave things cleaner than when we arrived.:eek:

And I guess he was talking about a pressure assist for $400 at least that's what it looks like he installed at his house? How is that guy even in business? His complaining wife needs to tell him to start charging a decent rate so he can make it home every now and again, oh ... wait, maybe there is a reason he's so cheap.
