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.

Latest Tips

Spring is the perfect time for an electrical safety inspection

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Electrical circuitry and panels tend to get ignored throughout the year and only get addressed when you experience a short circuit or electrical trips. As a homeowner, you may not know everything involved in the electrical circuitry of your home but there are still some questions you should ask your electrical inspector and Spring is the perfect time to do it!

No matter the size of the job, from changing out old electrical paneling to major renovations to your home or property, you should always ask your electrical inspector whether or not your home’s electrical fittings are up to date and in compliance with current regulations and building codes.

Secondly, be sure your electrical inspector pays attention to the safety of your electrical panel and makes sure that they are properly insulated to avoid electrical shock. Panels must also never be placed near damp or wet areas.

Understanding your electrical consumption is also important. Washing machines, televisions and air conditioners consume significant amounts of electricity, and it is your responsibility as the homeowner to be sure they are connected to the right circuitry to avoid electrical shorts or fluctuations in voltage.

Lastly, once the inspection is completed and any necessary repairs made, have your inspector run a double check to be sure all of your electrical circuitry is working properly. Ask your inspector to provide you with a complete report of all inspections and repairs done.

Why is my main breaker on the breaker panel tripping all the time

Monday, April 17, 2017

Any of these issues can cause significant injury or death by electrocution or fire. If that consistent breaker tripping occurs in your home, try turning the breaker off and then on again. If it stays on, the issue may be resolved. If not, and the breaker still trips, try to determine which part of the electrical system is causing the problem. Your safety is of utmost importance. With any electrical issue, calling your electrician (and hey we know a awesome one...you can find that awesome electrician here) first can keep you out of serious danger.

Aubrey did an excellent job with moving our electrical main service. He coordinated with Alabama Power and the Hoover inspectors and everyone was there when they should be. He knew that we needed a special disconnect and ordered the right one. We gave him a key and trusted him to be in and out of the house and yard when he needed to. He kept us informed, did a quality job and went over and above to come out to check on things for us after hours one evening and teach us a few things. Reasonable price as well. A true professional and I will recommend him again.
