John Thurston Plumbing
Found a hot water tank leak on Sunday afternoon. Called John and left a message. He returned my call at 8:00 sharp on Monday. Although he was on his way to another all day job, he stopped by to give me a diagnosis. He was able to quickly find the leak and replace the pipe. He was in and out in 45 minutes! Now that's service! And he is a nice guy. Will call and recommend him in future.

I have found my plumber! We had an issue with the pipe from the house to the septic system on a SUNDAY of all times. I called several plumbers and John not only responded quickly but also charged a very reasonable price for a weekend! He got us back in business and took the time to educate us about the set-up of our system. I won't call anyone else for future plumbing needs.

My experience with Pacetti's Plumbing was quite different than what was posted earlier. The guys arrived at my house in a timely manner. I think they were here for about 15 to 20 minutes and resolved my plumbing problems. I would not have a problem referring this company to friends or family members. The guys were very competent and thorough.

Did a good job replacing a garbage disposal unit/replace a small ring on the piping and replaced the water intake on a toilet for a price that was quite reasonable. Worked steadily til done. Will use his services again.

John arrived 15min after I called. Honest, efficient, and knowledgeable. Even patched the wall and cleaned. It's good to support a local business. Betsy ZylkowskiOwner, OceanVibes Spa

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.
