Visalia Plumbing Inc.
I live near Exeter. I called Visalia Plumbing at about 11PM on a 4th of July weekend Saturday night regarding a lengthy sewer line between the house and the street that had a complete stoppage. We had several guests staying at our residence. "Mike" was there in about twenty minutes. "MIke" unloaded his machinery and began immediately fixing the problem. He made the task look very easy and resolved it quickly. I have done same thing myself before and knew what it would require. Bottom line: I have never had a repair service that late on a holiday weekend night exercise that kind of discipline fixing the problem, that level of professional behavior and a pleasant courteous respectful attitude from a technician/owner ever. The costs for repair; absolutely more than fair. Thank you.

Had an excellent experience dealing with this company, from the first call to the final cleanup. Everything was done quickly and thoroughly with clear communication through the entire process and at a price that even the other companies I received quotes from said was very good.
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.
