Kelley's Septic Tank & Sewer Service
We had a main line clog which was backing up into the basement. The first plumber I called came out with a rooter and "worked" on the clog for about and hour and half. Came up with a pile of roots and said he was unable to go any further. He said- The line was too clogged at the street. Then they told my landlord it would be $20,000 to fix! And charged him $500 and left a pile of sludge roots on the floor. So we called Kelley's for a second opinion. They knew immediately after hearing our situation they would be able to fix the problem. The receptionist knew right away that the first guys did not use the right size rooter. The Kelly's service guy, I can't remember his name I'm so sorry, came 10 minutes early and quickly got to work. He was very courteous and honest, offering advice that will save use future high costs. He brought a huge machine down and said the other guy was probably using a SINK rooter! He was finished with the job in an hour and a half and even cleaned up the mess the other guy left. Kelley's Sewer Service is AWESOME! Thank you so much for the AMAZING service! In today's world of scammers it is so nice to find a business that actually shows honesty, integrity and hard work! THANK YOU!!!!!!

A-1 Sewer Service
A-1 service from this business! My call was returned promptly and he came to my house same day. He was very honest about whether or not work needed to be completed. He advised no further action was necessary based on our discussion other than a recommendation to change out our stool. To top off his honesty he refused to charge for the service call! Great person! I highly recommend calling Perry!
Tips & Advices
The following tools and common household objects can be used to clean drains at home:
  • A plunger
  • A drain snake
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Grease-fighting dish soap
Homeowners can mix boiling water with any of the last three products to break up grease and grime.
The main ingredients in clog removal liquid products are sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, both break down into relatively harmless components when it comes into contact with water or soil. However, both substances cause mild irritation to skin and internal tissues.
Also known as a drain auger, a drain snake is a coiled device around ΒΌ-inch thick. To use a drain snake, put the end into the entrance of the drain. Turn the handle to force the snake deeper, using extra pressure to force it through the bend in the pipe. Keep turning until the snake hits the clog, then either pull the snake and remove the obstruction or force it through. Once the snake is out of the drain, run the water on full blast for a few minutes to ensure the obstruction is completely removed.
Plungers don't damage residential pipes, but the force created by the act of plunging weakens the seal between the toilet and the floor.
Many plumbers, both local businesses and nationwide chains, offer emergency or same-day services.
