I had a very quet spell in the new year, so i went back to my routes, and took on a very big ducting job. Im now fitting stupidly heavy ductwork between 11 and 14 hours per day. Seven days per week. And also throwing in the odd split aswell.

I have calculated that if i carry on at this rate i will have earned 1,000,000 by the year 2016,
if i.m still alive.

This is my reason for not being to vocal at the moment, roll on winter, please.

cheers

The commissioning thread has never been very busy.
And repairing water leaks?? Now? On cooling machines? :confused:
Ohhh.... now I finally got it....that's the reason why I'm burned my arms and hands on the copper lines some times the last weeks, it's the hot water inside it.
Jeez ..learning every day a bit more. :D

Just like Eggs said, it are long days these days.

As a "one man band" I just cannot cope with the amount of work I am getting, I am trying to do service calls and fit in installations as well, I have even started leaving a message on my answer machine stating that we are taking no more calls apart from regular customers, I dont use my divert anymore, if the customer wants me they can call me on my mobile.........far too busy! Incidentally the refrigeration industry just gets busier each and every year for us self employed blokes as the bigger firms have given up the smaller shops, restraunts and licensed establishments, in a period of 8 years I have built up a cracking little business with plenty of scope for expansion if I wanted it, you would be amazed at the amount of work I have turned down this year, In january I turned down one contract for 120k last week I actually walked off site of a 7k job because I just could not cope with the amount of work I have and the amount of parts awaiting fitting and maintenance backing up......where have all the refrigeration engineers gone?

Hot spell :D :D
Think of the guys in India, Africa and also here, 35C to 45C untill the end of september..................

The only diference, is the size of the condensers,

Have a cold pint and relax, it will be freezing cold soon and you will have something new to complain about..........

Chemi :D :)

That why after a fridge job you should doe a waterleak job so you can cool down the burns on your hands and arms.
