    lol i have turned on 400 or so new accounts in the past 1.5 years
    and today i turned on the old backflow...but i learned when i went back to the shop it was on a pump start...

    i told the home OWNER that i would get the plumbing all fixed this week..

    when that backflow is null and void..

    Complete sentences are a plus when making a point or telling a story. I may not have been the best in English class, but damn, I just can't understand ya boy.

    ok sorry jackyls..

    I was told to go to a start up today.
    I turned on the backflow and heard water gushing out.
    I thought the system couldnt be turned on due to the backflow damaged.
    I later learned that the backflow was removed as the POC years ago,and the system had a 1 HP well or something...so alas i must head back to the same job tomorrow to turn the system on...I cant wait..only 140 turn ons to go

    Nowwwww I understand a little better. Only 140 more? Heck we're getting 20-30 calls a day, and that's light due to the rain and snow we keep getting.

    Jesus Dana!

    Thats a lot!!!!! How many techs you got out in the field? I assume @ least 3+ trucks/crews out there....Average Zone per accounts? We have some big ones as I am sure you do..I would gladly work 12 hr days trouble shooting/doing startups but my boss feels its better for him to save the OT $$...

    Good luck with the day buddy!!

    take her easy!
