Jim Dorsey & Son, Inc.
I believe Dorsey plumbing provide inferior work, inability to diagnose and resolve issues. The customer service is poor and unfortunately results in animated, angry conversations where a lack of respect is shown to the consumer. They sent out a gas contractor to repair in oil fired heating system. A simple diagnosis was missed, people were left in the cold.Their workmanship did not last four hours before failing. Upon a second return additional monies were billed. If you are looking to be overcharged via inability to diagnose issues this company will provide you the best of experiences.On a positive note they are readily accessible, Quick to Bill, and try their best.Unfortunately this review comes from multiple experiences with this company.
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 ┬╝-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.
