Default Painting Sewer Cleanouts

Look what I ran across on Craigslist. Have any of you guys thought about offering such a service? Seems very simple and probably quick. What do you guys think?

What do you feel the selling point of that would be? Maybe that the sewer clean out points don't get mowed over? Or would it just be for a beautification of the clean out pipe?

I would thin that bright colors are great for protecting the pipe leaving it to be unsightly while darker may help detract from it and leave it more prone to damage.

I really think that Sprinkler Buddy should consider working on a
"Clean Out Buddyİ"!

There is no way I would do this. No telling what liability could be involved. But I do like this guy thinking outside the box. You can put your team color and so many other things. If someone comes up with a great idea to hide (not hide to where it can't get run over though) these things they could make serious money.

It does make you wonder, what other things you could paint while at a customer's home. This is very creative thinking.

How about those electrical and telephone boxes out in the front yards of some homes?

Or maybe instead of painting, could some kind of fake rocks be placed over these sewer access points?
