Try and wrap your head around this. He’s trying to find leaks using equipment designed for a medical office. He’s stuffing rags into the end of pipes to try and seal them. He’s literally trying to get the results professionals get but he’s using band-aid measures, hopes and dreams that he’ll find a leak.
I asked Stephen why he was doing this and his answer was, “My boss won’t spend the money to get the right equipment.”
Assorted Rags: $10
3 Days on the job not finding the leak: $750
$880 later, still hasn’t found the leak. On the other hand:
Leak found in ten minutes, job done, payment for services received.
I said to Stephen, “It sounds to me like he spent more than he had to and you still aren’t getting paid by the customer because you have no idea where the leak is in the pipe.”
Frustrated, Stephen asked if there was anything he could do to get through the job and we helped him out the best we could before the end of the call.
The next day, Stephen called, placed an order for a Pro Complete Swimming Pool Leak Detection Kit, enrolled in the online training and today, he works for himself finding the leaks his former company couldn’t. lt was simply the frustration of trying to do jobs the wrong way that made him a rock star who does the job right. It was his former boss’ failure to do things right that made him the rock star leak detector he is today.
