The Magic Snake

We have all encountered a slow drain at some point in our lives. At first it’s annoying and you live with it. Then, it becomes even slower and you try an off- the-shelf drain opener. It helps . . . for a while. Then it becomes slow once again. You get caught up in the wash-rinse-repeat approach until you’re resigned to call in the professional to have the drain snaked. And in most cases that solves the problem. But for some of us who own older homes with drain pipes ranging in 75-100 years-old, there is no “Magic Snake” to solve what  you see pictured here.  For a pipe that becomes 100% clogged there is only one true solution and that is to cut the pipe out and replace it. You’ll stop pouring money down the drain with ineffective drain cleaners. You’ll  stop being annoyed with slow drains. And you’ll be good for the next 100 years.

What People Are Saying

  • Excellent and prompt service.  The workmen were professional and helpful in their explanation of care and service of the equipment.

  • I want you to know how pleased I was with the entire experience.  From the initial meeting with Chris through the installation of my new A/C unit.

    - Sondra S.( Shaker Heights, Air Conditioning Installation July 2017 )
  • Installers were spot on time at 8 am, took care not to track dirt into house, and were both courteous and friendly.  Excellent quality work to boot!

  • I have had several projects from Verne & Ellsworth, across boiler replacements, heating system installation, and air conditioning system set up and install.  Each of these times, Bill Hann takes a ton of his time to talk to my wife and I to learn about the issues we’re having, explain the root causes of those issues, and suggest fixes that we know will prevent the issues from coming back – not just paper over the issue temporarily.  Lastly, he always delivers on time – onsite when he says he will be, fishing when he says he will – and always makes sure every aspect of the job is completed, from material removal and set up, to equipment install, to clean up after the project.  A++ and highly recommended!

  • The unit is working very well.  The installers were very professional, showed me how everything worked, and cleaned the basement beautifully.  I would never have even known they were there.  Thank you again.
