I keep a couple of Kohler pressure assist In stock. Ada elongated. That usually won’t get installed the same day if sold. And it’s the only toilet I will sell. Anything else they need to get it themselves and no warranty. Having 5 daughters there is no more superior toilet IMO and I sell a sh!t load based on that knowledge alone.


Have they improved them since the $18 million lawsuit settlement?

havent had any issues. Im sure they took care of whatever it was. I know there was a recall.
There were several recalls over several exploding generations. I have customers who have had them explode sending porcelain shards everywhere. One has a scar on their leg.

The newer, thinner, all plastic ones are good....so far.

We are getting off topic.

This thread is strictly for bashing Marks choice of truck with him carrying water heaters AND Repair truck organization.

J/k 🤣

Hey, mark and his box truck did good today..

I had a 55 gallon electric and a water softener with me

Installed a 55 gallon electric and took out a 80...
done by 11.30
Installed a 50 gallon electric (I took it from my stock that I carry along with me) and I was done by 12.45..

Ran a quick errand then I picked up something to eat on the run and
went and installed a clack water softener and was back at the office by 5.pm..
Dumped all my junk off by the dumpster for the addicts and scrappers to fight over

You know I got another heater call at 4.40 and I Could have done another 50 gallon gas
heater tonight that was nearby cause I had a 50 gas in stock that I carry with mee at all times, but
it was getting late and had things to do tonight with the family.....

and I did not want to brag and make you feel bad terrytoto

So you had a 50 electric and a 55 gal electric just riding with you on the truck. 🤣

All unexpected jobs…….I’m sorry for laughing, it’s just funny to me. 🤣✌

No dear...

, the plan yesterday was only a 55 gallon electric and a Clack water softener....
and while I was on the 55 I get a call for a 50 electric very close nearby so I used
the 50 electric I carry in stock.....(remember that I carry 3 heaters with me)

then in the late afternoon around 4.30 I got a call for a 50 gas which I also carry with
me but it was too late in the day to fool with that one but I plan on doing
that 50 today....

I will try to type slower or use smaller words if you cant keep up.....
🤠 🤠

So it was a fairly profitable day ---any questions??

So even though you had the 50 gas with you, you ran out of time.

Exactly one reason why I told you carrying around material you don’t have time to install isn’t efficient.

I would’ve just called the supply house and had them drop me a water heater while I started removing the old one and started the invoice and clean up. But I don’t have time for an emergency water heater replacement usually, I’m busy and I schedule work in advance.

I don’t have spare time. I don’t have anyone else to send. But so what, I’m always busy. The day is always filled if I want it to be.

No questions.

Yes dear, I guess I was too tired and had other things to do that evening to
do that last heater as the sun was going down......

Sure , I guess should have just called the supply house and had them drop me off one
at the customers house hours before hand and I could have saved me having to
carry one around with me......maybe they will take it down the stairs too and haul
away the old one for you... 😆 😆 :unsure::unsure:

What you charge for each install?? How much is your haul-off fee???

Little on the low side to me
it all works out to around 1700-1800 on average.... more or less...

some old man yesterday told me my prices were too low but
I dont like being asked to leave the house in a hurry like BEN F gets
all the time after giving the customer their prices......

I cant stand being rejected....
..:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Its all good as far as I am concerned.... maybe I am not making the top dollar
but I am busy enough and I am blessed.......
