This went from OK to very bad. A month or so ago I paid him to fix my drain and I he did was make a bigger mess than the what was there before. The drain was fine for a few days, then backing up again. He ask for even more money just to come back out and he was rude. So never again will I use NGU. I can't even get my money back to fix what's wrong with drain.

While it is important to regularly keep an eye on your pipes, it's even more critical to do so if you're living in an older home. As a plumbing system ages, pipes will ...

Ngu plumbing came out to one of my rental property because u needed a better price on replacing my main drain from the basement to the city tap plus i needed my house repiped. I had five other est. And finally ngu plumbing not only saved my almost $2000.00. But they got the job done in one day and i was very pleased with there work performance, and i would keep them in my phone book in case of another plumbing job in the near future, once again thank you Mr. Brown and your team for resolving my issue's.

At first I thought this company was a God send but I was so wrong. My mom is 73 years old and they did not finish the job by. They left a big whole in her back yard where she likes to garden. They stopped answering the phone and text message until I said I will get someone else to fill the whole just come give us our drain treatment. Now they tell us we have to pay for the treatment which was never told to us at the beginning. For $2,800 dollars and we are not satisfied. I offered the company some of my deceased finance tools to help my mom pay for the cost. They took the tools and never told me what they would give me for them. When I asked them to bring them back they said I would have to pay another $900 to get them back to go towards the total coast of the job. Im getting a lawyer for my mom and take them to court before my mom falls in her backyard and hurts herself?

I was referred to NGU by on-line referral service for repair of leaking pipes and valves in my basement, and dripping bathtub and kitchen sink faucet. I was serviced by Mr. Brown. Upon referral I was told that I could use a credit card for payment but upon completion of the work Mr. Brown requested cash in the amount of $165.00. I reminded him that the referral source had agreed that I could pay with a credit card and that I wanted the additional warranty offered by my card. Mr. Brown left without payment. This morning my kitchen sink and bathtub faucets continue to leak and one of the pipes in my basement (that Mr. Brown said he repaired) has a puddle of water under it. Though I signed that Mr. Brown completed the work I think it was unsatisfactory and warrants only pay for the one valve that has stopped leaking, which would be $40.00.
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.
