Re: Stuffing Box
It's doable yourself. Often a drywall screw or similar with pliars can be used in lieu of the special tool to remove the old. All in all it depends on what the yard wants to do it, and what it's worth to you. You have to remove the old, determine size of packing, get packing, cut rings (45 degree cuts), force them in, adjust packing nut.
If they have a yard worker with long arms let him do it!
