I read about this site on the plumbingzone forums where I use the same name, I am also on the drain cleaning forums. I have been doing drain cleaning for a large plumbing/hvac company for about 14 months now. Before that I did ductwork for 5 months with them. I am actually going for a heating licsense but hey you have to start somewhere and this is the position they needed filled. I actually kind of like it so after my heating license I will be going for a plumbing license then hopefully starting my own drain cleaning business. It's not that bad when you figure I am an apprentice with his own van and a lot of autonomy, I am pretty much treated the same as the licensed guys granted the scope of what I can reliably work on is much smaller.

Drain cleaning itself only ends up being about half of my time, the other half is helping do anything else, new install, service, furnace/boiler/water heater change outs, you know all the fun back breaking apprentice stuff. Originally I wanted to be an electrician but these guys hired me first, boy am I glad. After only being on a couple job sites I realized the next worse thing after ductwork was running wire, then insulating, I think I would blow my brains out or peel off my itchy skin if that was all I did.

It's been a wild time, I get lots of calls for all sorts of issues, been into a ton of houses, cool old buildings, many places I wouldn't have otherwise seen.

What nationality?

Before anyone looks at me funny Skoro means "soon" if translated from russian.

So Skoronesa would be something like (and this is a rough and horrible translation but...) "A female who does things quickly"

If it was male it would be "Skoronik" "A male who does things quickly"

Might have nothing to do with the username. Please correct me if i am wrong.
