Local Plumbing Company Serving Hilshire Village
A clogged sewer line is a horrible thing to come home to after a long day. Your plumbing system may give you a warning just before it happens, but probably not. Perhaps you notice your shower starts draining a little more slowly, or your toilet doesn’t seem to be flushing quite as…well…completely as you may like.
Before the 1940’s, Missourian Frank Bruess read about a country estate in Hillshire, England. He liked the name so much that when he built a housing community in the suburbs of a growing Houston, he called Hilshire Village (with only one “L”). Formed in the early 1950’s, Hilshire Village today measures out to .3 square miles and is home to roughly 800 residents.
As part of the failed 1954 effort to form a Spring Branch municipality, along with several of the communities now collectively known as the Memorial Villages, Hilshire Village was officially incorporated in April of 1955 and adopted a mayor-council form of government.
The city of Houston did not annex the territory of Hilshire Village within its city limits, but it did add the surrounding unincorporated areas.
During the 1990’s, the smallest of the Memorial Villages, Hilshire Village, reached a population of 665 residents, many of whom decided to demolish their older style homes and replace them with more elaborate, modern structures.
Clogged sewer lines generally have two options for a repair. The old-fashioned method, which involves using a plumber’s auger, and has an effective range of about 100 feet. Hydro-Jetting uses extremely high-powered water jets to cut away at the residue in your drain and sewer lines, with an effective range of up to 300 feet. The Hydro-Jetting process returns your drain and sewer pipes to virtually new condition (in terms of drainage and efficiency).
