Offering sewer scopes is a great way to make an extra $150-300 in 20 minutes. Get a camera designed for home inspectors, by home inspectors.
At $150 per inspection how many inspections will pay for the unit?
Yep we’ve been down this road before.
At $150 per you would have it paid off after 35-40 scopes.
I had a plumber once tell me “it might be shit to you but it’s their bread and butter”. No it’s shit, I don’t touch it.
Walter, are you the only one that has not had their finger break through the TP? LOL!
Some of our customers have added over $60,000 of revenue from scopes alone! I would say wearing gloves and dealing with a little shit here and there is worth it lol
I use one roll per episode.
I hope you do not live with a septic system…
I pass inspections to the septic companies in my area. 95% septic and they can do it all in one sweep. No need for my clients to pay me to tell them they need a septic company to do the same the thing and charge them again.
Walter, I’ve had many “episodes” where, when finished, I look down and there is nothing there…know what I mean?..syphon.
In all honestly, I clothe diapered all my children. I’m not afraid of fecal matter. But I make enough money where shit will never be in my forte.
That said I have never been asked for a sewer scope. Inspectors don’t do that around here.
I have two outhouses on the property, it’s all good!
Except at 30 degrees below in the middle of the winter night with food poisoning…
$6,000. That’s a lot of beans and not a great business margin. My current camera paid for itself after 4 inspections. That’s money in my pocket not yours. I’m the one doing the work so I prefer to be the one getting paid. Best of luck with your endeavor.
Lol Larry! That’s what the honey bucket is for. Learned that in AK. ‘Honey can you please empty the bucket!”
Yeah, Walter, my grandma had one…thank God for the cover!
This is why I don’t do mold testing. Mold abatement companies do their own tests anyways. It’s a waste of my clients money.
