My sister and I had gotten ourselves into a difficult situation trying to replace our 92 year old father's toilet seat with one with a riser and handles. It should have been simple, and we were trying to get it done without telling him, but the bolts and brackets were so corroded and the plastic washer so stripped that it was an impossible mess. We had created a problem by trying to remove it ourselves and were stuck with a nonfunctional nearby toilet ���� which, if you have an elderly parent with mobility issues, you know is an emergency. Tex came to save the day, arrived within the hour and tiptoed quietly so as not to awaken our dad... on a Sunday afternoon, no less, and used a blowtorch to get the evil ���� bolts off. He installed the new seat quietly all while our dad snoozed. He was charming, kind and generous. He's definitely our new plumber for life. We're extremely grateful because now life is a little bit easier for our beloved dad. Highly recommended ��������������������

My boyfriend and I were having issues with our water pressure so we looked up Buddy and chose him based on his great reviews. We had no idea what was wrong and asked if he could come by, but Buddy troubleshooted the problem over the phone with us! It ended up being a simple fix that he walked us through when he easily could have come over and charged for a service call. He was so polite and friendly and I can't believe he was able to figure out the problem without even being there to see it! We feel bad that we didn't get to pay him for his help but now we know we have a plumber that we trust to do our repairs. He really cares about helping his customers!

We had Dan and Alvin come to our rental property because we had some guests complain of not enough hot water. These guys came out the same day I called, gave me a couple options, and eventually replaced my old water heater. They didn't force me to get a new one, or over sell me. Price was reasonable and they were very easy to work with considering we don't live in the area.

We have used D&G twice. the first time was last winter on a Sunday morning in an ice storm. We REALLY needed a plumber and they came quickly figured out what was wrong and fixed it quickly at a good price. The next time we used them they came the same day we called and again were fast and reasonably priced. If you use them you will not be sorry.Jim

Took me almost 30 yrs to find a "go to" plumber! He's now on my frig and I wouldn't call anyone else. For the past 3 yrs Buddy has saved the day in crisis as well as fixed annoying problems that just needed his expertise. He is so fair and trustworthy I am grateful to have found him.

Spoke with Doug and he guided me through a quick fix vs. paying for a service a call. Could have easily charged me $90 for just coming out but did the right thing. Should tell you all you need to know about who you are doing business with!

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 ¼-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.
