Looking for an Independence Plumber? Here’s My Advice

plumbing-services-independence-moI have mentioned in my last post about my mad carpentry skills and how coincidentally my last name is Carpenter. Excuse me if this sounds like I am blowing my own horn here, but it’s like I was born for the job. Additionally, if there’s one thing aside from carpentry that I am really good at, that would be plumbing. I guess I might have said that a few times already in my previous posts, but that doesn’t make it any less true. I am actually a great DIY plumber; I am almost as good as a licensed one.

But that’s where the problem lies.

I may be skilled and experienced in this industry as I claimed to be, but I can’t sell my services for a living. I can pretend to be a licensed technician, but I don’t want to, and I won’t ever. This is why I don’t understand why some contractors would pretend to be experts when they are not. Totally not cool.

I think this is worth repeating several times so I won’t be misunderstood: I am no expert (just awesomely good at it), but if you need someone properly trained and equipped to do repairs, I know some certified plumbers who are steadfast at their job.

I remember getting a call from a family friend just a few months ago. They have a problematic toilet that seems to always clog and Aunt wants me to come over and help them. As much as I want to, I don’t have proper certifications and insurance and helping them can make things complicated. What I did was refer to them to Plumbers 911 in Independence. I knew this plumbing company from before and I have heard good reviews about them so I didn’t think twice recommending them. Turned out I wasn’t wrong about them. Up to this day, Aunt is grateful to have hired these contractors.

If you need Independence plumber to do toilet repairs or other plumbing services in your residence in Missouri, dial this number right away: (816) 656-2524. Also here is a video from which you can learn more about them:

Four Easy Ways to Unclog the Tub Drain in Your Miami Home

unclog-tub-drain-in-Miami-FLReady to soak in a warm, relaxing bath after a long day?  Right after you’ve melted all the stress away and scrubbed up, you then realize that the water in your tub is NOT draining well. What could possibly be wrong? What should you do to unclog your tub drain?

Try to minimize the stagnant water in your tub – Get a pail and a bucket and pour some water there.  You need to do this to have a better view of your drain cover. Then, you can begin.

Here are four simple ways:

1 .Remove the drain cover – Unscrew it if necessary. Then, remove the tub stopper (some tubs have this) Try to get as much hair as you can stuck on the stopper.


2. You can also use an old wire hanger – Straighten it, then bend it at the end to make it look like a hook.  Insert it in the drainage and use it to get hair, scum and other obstructions.

3. Use a drain claw – Give it a twist by working your way around the opening, allowing it to grab as much as hair as it can with its almost one hundred interlocking hooks.

Make a DIY drain hair remover – Get some plastic strapping tape (the ones used for boxes/ crates), cut it around thirty inches, then cut the sides with a pair of scissors. This creates snags for the hair and scum. This works by pushing it down the drain, then run some water once you are done to wash away any remaining particles.

If you’re encountering a really stubborn clog and if these steps don’t solve the problem, give your local licensed Miami plumber a call. They are trained professionals who can provide you efficient service and emergency plumbing repairs.

So What Should I Write About?

Forgive my lame blog title. Seriously, I have spent the last three weeks building this blog site and now that I finally got everything set up, it seems as though I am lost for words — or topics to write about. I have planned about this site for such a long time that I totally forgot to make my own editorial calendar. LOL How awkward is that?!

Anyway, I’m Jonathan Carpenter and I know you’d be amazed by this — I love carpentry. It’s true. My parents definitely didn’t plan for our last name. So I must say it is a big coincidence to have Carpenter as my last name after all. But aside from carpentry, I am also a skilled plumber. Yes, you got that right!

I love installing appliances like washing machines, garbage disposal machines and water heaters. I am also into performing repairs and fixing pipe connections. But if there’s one thing that I hate about plumbing, that would be unclogging toilets! Don’t we all? It’s a man’s job, they say. But I beg to disagree. Even if you’re a man, once you smell that stinky septic gas and you haven’t even eaten yet, that’s going to be dooms day for you! Haha

So anyway, let me welcome you to my blog! Bear with my poor humor and corny jokes. I’ll try to make your reading experience as fun and as worthwhile as I can!
