“I went from working for multiple other people, to going out on my own. Then I went from a one-man band to now having seven people here at American Sewer in a matter of four years!” Jonathan Pullis (Owner/Operator) and his team at American Sewer are living proof that the American dream is still alive and well in Bloomington, Minnesota.
“I think I had five different company’s magnets in my truck at once” -Jonathan Pullis
10 years ago, Jonathan Pullis was a young man on a mission. His entrepreneurial spirit was starting to burn as he answered yet another craigslist ad for a local drain cleaning company. Little did he know, this was the beginning of what would come to make Jonathon earn the name “Jonathan the Drain Cleaner”.
American Sewer defines the saying “built from the ground up.” In the beginning, American Sewer was a young and hungry company; Jonathan began by purchasing two drain cleaning machines to help get the company on its feet. Because of the difficulties Jonathan was facing on his own due to subpar equipment, he was still working part-time with another drain cleaner, building funds for his own company.
“These Minneapolis sewers are some tough sewers”
The turning point for Jonathan and American Sewer was after a few years of driving around in his blue 1999 Suburban–answering any call he could get his hands on. By this time, American Sewer had earned a reputation for hard-work and dedication to be the best drain cleaning service in the Minneapolis Metro. With the entrepreneurial spirit growing larger inside of Jonathan, he invested in a Spartan 1065 Drain Cleaning Machine for his larger jobs and a Spartan Model 100 Drain Cleaning Machine for the smaller sized pipes. According to Jonathan, this is where he really began to see his hard-work begin to pay off and American Sewer on the rise.
“When I got into Spartan is when I could start handling these longer sewers, it made it easier because I wasn’t having any of the mechanical problems. I quit rolling my cable over.” … “Spartan machines gave us more room for error as far as rollovers and cable feed goes” -Jonathan Pullis
Fast-Forward to present day and “Jonathan the Drain Cleaner” along with his team at American Sewer LLC is taking on sewers no matter how big or small the project may be. “Bottom line is we care about providing good service and can back that up with quality work at a reasonable rate. “
American Sewer operates under the idea they call their Start to Finish:
