31:38 – Each of the guests explain what got them into plumbing, starting the business, and how they grew to now having 45 employees. They share the amount of hours the state requires before someone can be a plumber, how they try to keep a tight niche with only providing services to 30 miles away from their office, and the worst un-professional “self-fixes” they have seen over the years.
42:30 – The guests discuss the different pictures and videos their team share throughout the day, how the issues occur, and the preventative steps people can take to avoid smaller issues from becoming bigger problems. They share how people with basements need to make sure they have a backwater check valve, how people can go about finding if they have one and checking it, and how the sub pump works.
