I own a day spa in Gurnee and needed a treatment room refitted in a small window of time. Dan and Bill came in after closing (9pm) and worked through the nights to get the job completed ahead of schedule! They whistle while they work, are flexible and did work that was not in their job description to help me meet my deadline. I gave Dan my keys and alarm info knowing he is a man of integrity and I could trust him. I highly recommend Dan "Done Right" and he is our guy for the renovation we are undertaking next week...can't wait!

I have got to say both Dan and Bill are great no mess, straight, honest and just get it done. They came to replace my toilet gave me advice other the type to acquire which i followed, they came on time fitted cleaned and left and all at a very good competitive price. best recommendation I can give them is from this point on they are the only people I will use.

I had Dan replace all of the copper that was stolen out of our 4 unit property. He installed the water heaters and the gas lines to them. He did it on time, did what he promised. I paid him in full even though he was not finished. He didn't disappear. He came back and finished what he said he would finish.

My mother is a customer of Ernie Peterson Plumbing having just needed a few jobs done in her kitchen for two new items. They did good work and gave her a fair price for parts and labor. But most of all she felt safe letting them into her house. I would recommend Ernie Peterson Plumbing.

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.
