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..

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!
