Call the General Now to Prevent Damage from Clogged Drains

Posted on October 16, 2017

Is your favorite college or pro football team (or maybe both) already going down the drain? We sure hope not, but General Air Conditioning and Plumbing can make sure everything that’s supposed to go down the drain really does. A clogged drain is not only annoying, but left unchecked, it can cause a lot of damage. Even worse is a sewer system that plugs up and causes a smelly and unhealthy backup.

The General’s licensed plumbers have all the tools to deal with things like blocked drains and toilets. One solution is something called hydro jetting. We use a stream of high pressure water to clean the pipes. The General also has high tech cameras to locate blockages in the sewer pipes outside your home.

The key is to recognize the signs of a blocked drain or a sewer system that needs cleaning so you can call in the General before any damage is done. Here are some symptoms to be aware of:

  • A plumbing fixture with a slow drain
  • A toilet making a gurgling sound
  • Signs of wetness around a floor drain after washing clothes
  • Water (sewage) coming up through the tub and shower drains

 
The General’s plumbers will not only fix the immediate problem, but can treat your pipes to prevent future clogs. We use BioSmart™, an enzyme drain cleaner. It uses beneficial bacteria that “eat” fats, oil, and grease. Because it’s not a caustic chemical, BioSmart is the safe choice for pipes, septic systems, and the environment.

The General would also like to thank everyone who just helped us flush out breast cancer by taking part in the Paint El Paseo Pink Breast Cancer Walk. The 11th annual event was a great success, but just remember, the General is still “Cooling for a Cure.” Until the end of October, we will donate a portion of our proceeds to the Desert Cancer Foundation. So, make the phone call now and schedule your HVAC or plumbing service.

This is the 10th year of “Cooling for a Cure,” and just one example of how the team at General Air Conditioning & Plumbing is dedicated to helping the communities we serve. It’s part of the “General Gives Back” program, and one more reason they call us “The Best Little Air Conditioning and Plumbing Company in the Desert.”
