Slowly, but surely the drains in your home are slowing down, then they are backing up and you’ve got a real problem on your hands.  Sometimes a DIY will clear up the problem without having to call a professional.  Specialized plumbing tools used to combat clogs are available at any hardware store or home center in Central Illinois.

It all begins with the good old reliable plunger.  If the plug is further down the drain line the next tool to try is a cable auger or plumber’s snake.  Cable augers are available in lengths up to 100 feet, though a 25-foot model will suffice for most household drain clogs.  You may have to rent an electronic power auger for the really deep dives.

Here is the important point to remember.  If you have made repeated attempts to clear a clogged drain call a professional!  The right man for the job is Dave Bailey of Dave Bailey plumbing.  Dave and his team provide fast, efficient, guaranteed drain cleaning to homes and businesses around Morton, East Peoria, and Pekin.  Call him today at (309) 265-6788.

The Advantages of a Water Filtration System.

Of all the different types of water filtering systems and upgrades available for your Central Illinois home, the most convenient is probably a whole house system.  A POE (Point of Entry) is installed at a single point where the main water supply line enters your home.

Obviously, the biggest advantage of a filtering system is to your family’s health. These filtration systems filter out unsafe levels of chlorine, sediments, and other chemicals that can be found in the water that flows to your house.  An effective chlorine filter reduces the amount of chlorine inhaled and consumed while drinking, washing, and bathing.

When you have made the decision to have a whole house water filtration system please give us a call.  We are Dave Bailey Plumbing proudly serving the plumbing needs of East Peoria, Morton, Pekin and the surrounding area.  Check out our website at davebaileyplumbing.com.  Call us anytime at (309) 265-6788.
