    Lately its been kind of a bore with the service work...No crazy problems turned on like 13 and then stumble across this with my partner..

    the pipe is Endot we believe, there about 10 different company stickers on the el-6. Its tuff when the guy on the walkie talkie goes, "problem on zone 1 next, problem on zone 2 next."

    well thats how this started... pulled up a 600 from 1986 off this puppy..
    This turn on is how my boss makes cake...crappy systems installed...

    What's with the gloves! Is he washing dishes or something? I can't stand wearing gloves. Lost enough feeling in my fingers over the years, that gloves make it even worse. Too bulky and cumbersome.

    Bingo! Every year for the past 3 this turn on is a PITA!!!!!!!!

    H/O takes a porkin on the bill every time...I personally hate going there...

    Grampy- my partner, is the guy who has 30 years exp and sold my company 300 accounts... He taught us how to bill better and to be more organized.. He was born on the CAPE and is running 12 Generations strong.. And Ronnie is just a worker like me..a Tech.. i listen to his suggestions and he listens to mine...I trouble shoot controllers better and he is the valve/backflow repair wizzard... Needless to say we teach eachother, As a matter of fact I showed him how to 521 a wire for the first time in his life just a few weeks ago!

    That pipe is horrible..I hate endot....it's more like ENDON't!!!!!!!!!

    Its sad when you go to a job and the funny pipe is 4 times deeper than the zone feeders..... What a waste.. after we go back today and fix that stuck valve the H/O is looking @ a 6-800$ bill easy for just 4 hrs tops.

    nice backflow [​IMG]

    me and grampy
