I Earn my money preforming a service.... a closely guarded secret of the industry of potable water..
not everyone is cut out for this job/career, but for a small investment in your own life
it could free you up to LIVE..
god i sound "scammy"
ok here is the dirt
every state in
USA needs BACKFLOW ASSEMBLY TESTERS
do a google search and see HOW many are in your zip code
call anyone at random and ask" how much do you charge"?
depending on Where you live, it will be from 50 bucks to 150.00 just for the testing service
repairs are EXTRA....
i bought a DIFFERENTIAL TEST GAUGE for about 900.00
went to a short class-- all said and done -- for another grand $$
your local laws and schools will guide you,,, I am NOT selling you anything..
just telling you what works for me..
i go into a restaurant, there is a backflow assembly on every "pop" machine, dishwasher , barsink,
fire system, and outside irrigation
i charge 50 bucks a test
4 tests say,, 200.00
the test takes around 10-15 mins if i'm slow and careful
i can do 5 or so in a day like this,,, bigger places take more time, but i charge by the test,,
not by the hour..
springtime i can do 25 tests on Irrigation systems a day, without missing dinner
---remember repairs i charge EXTRA for,, so if ONE slows me down,,,,,it$ ok..lol
any real questions should be answered by your STATE department of health, for state laws/codes
good luck and remember this
ultimately,, and i do take THIS seriously ,,
I SAVE lives,, potentially,,, every day..
I make sure the backflow devices set in place by a wise water company,
are tested according to local laws of my state ,,
and i give a damn,,, and by gum, the people pay ME for my care..
let your neighbors pay you .......
