I also have raised my price but provide a better service by running the expandable jaw which allows me to give them a 1yr warranty for roots and before and after camera is so impressive they gladly pay more.


    I go in every house with this in mind minimum words maximum profit i give people three options 1. Ok (no warranty ) and u flow when i leave 2 better (limited warranty) 3 best (1 yr warranty ) and i machine your pipe to full diameter from the house to the street a camera to show them the results. No one has ever said option 3 was a waste they see mind blowing results.

    Thanks Drainguy,

    What you said just made the light bulb go on in my head.

    Your warranty is just on roots? Do repair on main lines? ( I don't)
    I was thinking of getting the Eel expansion cutter for the Dreel.
    Don't own a camera but now I see a way to pay for it.

    Thanks again

    Yes warranty on roots only. As far as repairs i have done a few spot repairs put in a few shallow clean out but not a whole line repair but i got an excavator waiting. the eel is nice but i will soon be using the double expandable jaw with my custom made blades witch are one or two time use only and razor sharp.

    Thanks again Drainguy,

    Any more tips would be great.

    Are we one pass for flow, two passes for short warranty
    and camera/expansion cutter for long term warranty
    or is it cutter size?

    Tips for selling this?

    Thanks again

    If I can pass a full size cutter, 90 days residential 30 days commercial. Wipes, paper towels, etc... void warranty. If I can't pass a full size cutter then warranty is at my discretion.
