Scotch Plains Plumbing – Unclogged!

If you are searching for Scotch Plains plumbing, you are probably in need of some plumbing tips.  Ok, let’s be honest, you may be in need of some unclogging tips!  Here are some of the top tricks to unclog that toilet before calling a professional.

Scotch Plains Plumbing – Unclogged!

Well, we said it.  Clogged toilets.  No one likes them, but everyone has to deal with it at one point or another.  Even though your trusty local plumbing company will be there for you no matter what, sometimes the situation is dire and more imminent efforts are required.  Here are a few tricks to try first before calling your favorite plumber to come to your rescue!

First, plunge it out!  A plunger is a must-have home appliance, and if you don’t have one, you should probably be sure to invest in one as soon as possible.  A plunger is great to have around if your toilet starts to overflow and is also a great tool to have at hand if a guest is in need. Be sure to choose a study and durable plunger that has a flange, something that will make it more effective for clearing that clog and plunging that sucker out!

Another handy tool is good ol’ petroleum jelly.  Putting a little PJ around the rim of your plunger can help you get a really good seal around the tip of your pipes, giving you a much needed seal.  This tight fit at the bottom of the bowl will keep the top of the plunger submerged in water enough to suck out the clog the way it was made to.  If you need to, don’t be afraid to add more water to really do the trick.

Next, you may not believe it, but vinegar and baking soda can really free a clogged toilet!  This blend is not only more gentle on a toilet system than chemical cleaners, but you probably already have them on hand in your pantry!  To work this little bit of toilet unclogging magic, bring a large pot of water to a boil, well a simmer should do it.  Then allow the water to cool for a few minutes, about five or so.  Add one full cup of baking soda to the toilet bowl.  Then follow with two cups of vinegar.  Afterwards, pour in your hot water, beings sure not to over flow the bowl, which may happen if you pour in too much too fast. The clog may take several hours to work its way out, but it really should do the trick!  Slow and steady wins the race!

If that does work, consider trying liquid dish soap to slip things down the tubes.  Heat water the same way you did for the baking soda and vinegar mixture, but get the soap in there nice and good, allowing it to settle a bit before pouring the water in.

Finally, a plumbing snake can be used to clear a clog, especially if it’s stubborn.  Though this is a little more hands on, and there for a little more gross, it is something that can be done by yourself at home for a significantly smaller cost than that of a plumber.

But, when all else fails, or if you just don’t want to deal with it yourself, go ahead and invest in calling a professional.  You know they will get the job done fast, and correctly – the first time.

Good Tidings is one of the most professional companies I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Always prompt, clean and have done outstanding work on multiple AC installs, as well as, general plumbing. My most recent experience was with Matt and Joel who installed a new AC unit in our home. Excellent techs and great product. In addition Brian performed work on our furnace with great results. We called for service and they were there the same day. Outstanding company that I would recommend to anyone!

Brian was great with assessing the problem, fixing it and then cleaning up. I had 2 separate clogs (main in basement and 2nd floor bathtub) that he was able to fix. Overall, services were priced on the higher side, but money well spent for the A+ service provided. Recommended.

We had excellent service from Good Tidings! Our air conditioner broke during the hottest week of the year. We had another company come in, charge us, and tell us nothing was wrong but it was still broken. Thankfully, Good Tidings came in and within an hour was able to tell us exactly what was wrong and fix our air conditioner! They did an excellent job explaining everything and talking us through reasonable pricing options. We'll definitely be using them again!

Excellent same day air conditioner service in the middle of a heat wave! They found an electrician to help with the problem who was also reasonably priced and had the air on by the end of the night! Steven stayed till 8 pm to b sure the air was fixed and running correctly
