Drain Clearing

Drain Clearing

A clogged drain seems like such an easy fix! But what do you do when your snake doesn’t fix it, and neither does that handy bottle of Drano? It may be time to call a plumber!

If you’ve tried multiple times to unclog the drain and it’s still not working, it’s time to turn the job over to a plumber. Exerting too much force can permanently damage a pipe or fixture, turning a simple fix into a costly one.

Sometimes that simple clog is a sign of something more serious, like a main sewer line clog. If you hear your toilets gurgling after washing your clothes, or notice water around the floor drain in your basement, that could be a sign of a serious problem to come. This all ties in with small clogs throughout your home. Calling a plumber may be your best decision, as the problem source can be found and addressed quickly, saving you time and headaches later!

If you are having issues with slow or stopped up drains, get a hold of John’s Electric Service at (205) 426-0583 or use or online service request form to reach out to us.

Amazing new technology powers wearable devices with our own sweat.

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

A team of engineers from the University of California, San Diego has developed remarkable stretchable power cells that take energy from your own sweat and power electronics, like LEDs and even Bluetooth radios!
For a field that has been struggling to come up with devices that are powerful enough and stretchable enough, these epidermal biofuel cells are a major breakthrough. The breakthrough was achieved thanks to a combination of extremely clever chemistry, highly advanced materials and electronic interfaces. This combination let them build a highly stretchable, electronic foundation using lithography and screen-printing to manufacture 3D carbon nanotube-based cathode and anode arrays.
The biofuel cells are equipped with an enzyme that oxidizes the lactic acid present in human sweat to generate current. This turns the sweat into a source of power. Because the concentration of lactic acid in a person's sweat gets diluted over time, the team is exploring a way to store the energy produced while the concentration of lactate is high enough and then release it gradually.So future work is needed before this technology can be considered a full success.

Service was above and beyond excellent. Stuck with us and the power company until the true root of the problem was found. Worked around our schedule and budget restraints. Left things clean and was very respectful. Would definitely recommend him and use him again.

Very dependable, professional, friendly and just good at what he does. John wired an addition for us and repaired my breaker box. He is friendly and trust worthy. I had no problem leaving full access to our home while we were away. I highly recommend him and his phone number will remain in my contacts. Job well done! Thanks again.
