Get Ready for Maximum Productivity
We're at the starting line of the busiest part of the season. It's time to set yourself up for maximum success in the weeks ahead!
Here are some tips to help you prepare:
Set Boundaries. Avoid burnout by scheduling all your time effectively.   That means scheduled work time and family time without distractions. And never, ever wasted time. Eliminate bad habits so you can focus on what's important.
Sell at Full Price.   Never discount during peak sales times. Rising costs mean rising prices. Customers will accept this because they want the work done.   Don't forget add-ons and upgrades either!
Play to Your Strengths. Don't say "yes" to everything.   Avoid projects that overwhelm with details and distractions. Drive your business towards what you like and what you're good at.
Work Hard & Work Smart.   Be intentional in the customers and jobs you take. This is the easiest time of year to score the best profits.   Bank some money while the economy is strong, pay down debt and restock your winter fund.
Let us know what we can do to help you crush it!

How Much Solvent Cement Should You Order?

The two factors that determine the amount of cement you need for a PVC project are pipe diameter and the number of joints in the project.  

As a general rule of thumb, the amount of primer you need is approximately half the amount of solvent cement.
Estimate the easy way using The Cement Quantity Calculator on the Weld-On Toolbox mobile app or try the desktop version, both available for download in the technical section of the Weld-On website.
