I might be too cheap, but I charged them $4900 for the whole job which included about 30' of sewer outside the house. That did not include the original inspection.

Hopefully Cuda chimes in and tells me if I'm in the ballpark or not. Basically we did it on parts of 3 days due to scheduling issues but it was really a day's job for 2 guys.

Pretty cool. I worry about how long the repair will last. That is what has kept me from getting into the pipe lining scene. Have you found much of a market for piping lining/patching?

The thing with pipe patch don't worry about how long it will last, it is a special epoxy that cures even with water present. It hardens to a rock! And best of all compared to pipe lining pipe patch adheres to the the host pipe, pipe lining may stick to the host but may not. Pipe patch is really cheap to get started with compared to lining.

You made good money Bro! Most jobs are 2nd base hits, it may be 12k but your labor and materials can eat it up so you make a modest profit, then the home runs come along and you make bank, the 2nd basers keep my guys working and the home runs buy me more tools lol. Good Job Rat lol
