    Default Greetings and Salutations

    Although I have been plumbing for 17 years, I chose the Homeowner and Consumer Introductions subforum to introduce myself in.

    After reading through this forum for awhile, I have realized that just because I am a plumber does not mean that I know how to clean drains. I had the idea of starting to clean drains as a sideline until I got my own plumbing business up and running, since in my state you don't need a plumbing license to clean drains, but now I think that the plumbing business might precede the drain cleaning business. At any rate, I think that in rural area such as mine, the ability to unclog drains would be a valuable addition to the ability to install them, so I intend to push forward in that direction, just not as quickly as I had thought.

    Sorry, I forgot to fill out my profile yesterday evening.

    I am from Central Florida, sorta near Orlando and Daytona Beach.

    I have a wife, 2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats, I brew my own beer, I like to scuba dive (though I am currently on hiatus). My day job is project foreman for a plumbing company that mainly specializes in new construction apartments.

    When we have had clogged drains on our projects, I have used the drum machines that you can buy at Lowe's, with 3/8 cable. In the past when working for a company that did houses and a little bit of service work, I used a K-60 several times. I have also used a camera several times. So I THOUGHT that I knew a little bit about drain cleaning. However, reading accounts on here of you guys being able to tell what kind of pipe you are working with just by sound and feel, pulling out root blockages in multiple pieces, makes me realize that there is a lot more to cleaning drains that just shoving some cable down a pipe. Already, I have learned a lot from this forum.

    Cheers,

    David
