Service for toilet leak: Artois customers home. Customer led me to their bathroom. Customer says that the toilet was hit and shifted from the floor, also snapping 2 bolts from inside the tank. Gave the customer an estimate to repair the toilet or to install a new one. Customer agreed to replace it instead. Customer wanted a kholer toilet so I adjusted the price by increasing it. Customer approved this and I ordered a toilet from security. Removed old toilet. Installed new wax ring and bolts. When new toilet was dropped off I put in place. I installed a new angle valve shutoff. Filled the toilet and checked for leaks. Toilet flushes properly and no leaks. Performed a water quality test. pH 6.5 Iron .5ppm Hardness 7 grains Checked to see where a new softener could be installed. Wrote 4 estimates for water conditioning. Sent to customers email. Customer also wanted a quote to extend condensation drain pipe outside. Gave an estimate for that as well. Customer was very happy and paid with

Found furnace not firing on call for heat. Looked thru sight glass and no error codes illuminated. Removed covers and watched unit cycle. Igniter lit and gas valve clicks but flame doesn’t light. Checked incoming gas pressure. 12.33inWg. When valve tries to open incoming pressure drops to 11.66inWg. Outgoing pressure is 0.199inWg. Turned unit off and bled system to free possible air in line. Rebooted system and same current readings. Tested voltage to gas valve. 25 volts to gas valve are current. Spoke with Greg, Danny, and Noah and they advised replacement of the gas valve.

Original ticket was to camera the underground drain line for the softener and the gutter. Camera inspected the line and found a lot of debris built up in the pipe and about 13 feet out there a big dirt blockage. It is corrugated pipe and with the amount of debris that’s built up, the drain will have to be hydro jetted using the mini jetter to remove all the debris and then the line can be camera inspected the rest of the way. 9-9-21 return trip to hydro jet the underground drain line for the gutter and softener. We were out two days ago and could only get out about 8 feet with the camera and the snake. As a courtesy we came back to try and hydro jet the line to remove more of the blockage. With the jetting machine we were able to remove about 8 more feet of the blockage which is solid dirt and debris from the roof and gutter system. We got to a point where the jetter and camera could not go any further. Hand dug the area where the camera was getting hung up and found that the broke

Tested the system and everything is working fine however the drain under the ground is now backing up because the correct amount of water is being discharged from the softener with the bigger drain tube and the drain is backing up. The corrugated pipe may be collapsed, plugged with dirt or broken under the ground. Advised the customer that we will have to schedule a return trip to camera inspect the line and try to get it flowing again. There may be additional charges if the line has to be dug up or replaced but we won’t know the condition until we get the camera down the drain. 9-7-21 Original ticket was to camera the underground drain line for the softener and the gutter.

Service to run a new discharge line from the treatment to the drain out back. Will have to jack hammer a larger whole through the wall. Also will have to service the units once the new discharge line is installed. Will have to vacuum out the excess water from the brine tank as well. Pulled out the old discharge line which was way undersized and installed the new vinyl discharging tubing to the outdoor drain. Had to bore out the wholes through the wall to account for the bigger pipe. Once we had the new drain in we vacuumed out the brine tank and adjusted/service the treatment system.
