When the drain clogs…


If you have a clogged drain, sink, or toilet, that cannot be worked free with a plunger, then call one of the guys at Justin Dorsey Plumbing.


At JDP, we have a bevy of tools that can help fix your problem. Our techs can run a mechanical snake through your drain to unclog it. It’s best if you have a cleanout, or alternative access point, to your main drain line. We can install those too.


We can also send a jet-pressured stream of warm water down the drain line to loosen a clog.


If that doesn’t work, we can run a camera down the line to see the nature of the clog. During the drought a few years ago, trees and other shrubbery were literally dying of thirst. Clay tile is no match for the roots of a thirsty tree. If roots are you problem, we have a treatment that can clear your line that is much cheaper than digging it up and replacing pipe.


Drains get clogged from time to time. However, it is not recommended to pour drain cleaner down your drain. This could damage your pipes and make it dangerous for our techs to work with mechanical solutions. The caustic liquid just lies in front of the clog while our snake is trying to get to the clog. Often times this can lead to a real mess.


Next time you have a drain clog, call the professionals at Justin Dorsey Plumbing. Call Today, Fixed Today, is our motto. Call (888)242-2937 and discover the pride of professionals.
