I didn't expect that machine to be so heavy(If you're referring to the snake apparatus). I rented one from Lowe's(for personal use) and could not get that thing around, up & down by myself. I bet it weighed 300lbs or more(Easy Rooter).Anybody have a roto rooter? I been kickin around the idea of buying one and adding that service. Are they all the same or is there some to stay away from?
Yeah, well I call it Horse Excrement. Drain cleaning is not "plumbing work." Running a sewer jetter does not take a 5 year apprenticeship to learn.You need a plumbing license to do any type of plumbing work that is not in your own house, they call it protecting the health of the nation.
It's a Drain Layers license, sewer installers have to have one to install sewers in the city, it also qualifies them to clean sewers as long as they are not opening a C.O. or breaking a trap seal inside the dwelling.I know when I was in Chicago, they had a drain cleaners license that was a sort of lesser plumbing license. Not sure about the rest of the state, or if it still exists, but might look into it.
Here in kansas city, there are 2 - 3 levels of each trade license.
I don't write the codes, I just follow them.Yeah, well I call it Horse Excrement. Drain cleaning is not "plumbing work." Running a sewer jetter does not take a 5 year apprenticeship to learn.
I have a septic installers license, should the guy running a septic pumper need the same training as I have? No.
