Had Jeff come in November and I was so impressed I had him come again last week for a new issue. He let me know how much the job was going to cost and when he was finished he didn't charge me more even though I feel like he would have been justified. I'll call him again in the future. He was fast and obviously knows his business well.

Very disappointed in this one guy operation . unsure this guy should be working with all of his health problems . Everything in pex cheap parts and high labor costs . He charged me 9 hours to install a new toilet and sink faucet . Didn't give an estimate . Just hit me up for a 1000.00 bill. I learned my lesson maybe u can without losing your butt with this guy .

Gallon, Inc.
A HUGE thank you to Gallon Inc in Des Moines for replacing the sewer line from The property to the street in time and under budget! This project had to be done in a very short amount of time due to the fact the house was in escrow for sale. It is very rare anymore for anyone to stick to their word and honor their time commitments, and they did. They fought rain and other scheduling conflicts to get it done. Most of the time I am left disappointed when we have a project like this. I couldn't be more pleased.
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.
