    leak detection job last week, a few tests determined the path to follow. a little diving, a little digging and one happy future leak detector.

    it's a matter of eating right, getting plenty of rest and living an overall safe and clean lifestyle.:laugh::laugh:

    Junior goes in the hole first, like a canary in a coal mine :)

    Absolutely Matt, he is a one year veteran with more than 8 dives.
    All of the boys that live close learned at 6/7yo, started this one a little earlier (5yrs.5mos.).
    I use a hooka / snuba system in a controlled enviornment and single atmosphere which allows me to provide the kids with an experience few others get at their age. they make some bank in the process. you have similar opportunities with your kids Matt, take advantage of the time you have with them.

    neighbor that i found the leak for rolled in on his quad last night with referrals to 2 more leak jobs.

    its 100 degrees and climbing, smoke so thick it makes your eye burn and i get to go dive for an hour or so, sometimes i can have something nice :laugh:

    Just got in from a 40 min dive. Third this week, found 2 pinholes and one tear about half the size of a dime (not a nickle, a dime).

    One more this weekend unless the guy with the torn liner wants me to do the repair which will make 2 more.

    It is nice to make really good money doing something you like to do and cool off at the same time.
