Plumbers Drain Cleaning FAQS

As Moncks Corner's top choice for plumbing services since 1978, we've learned a thing or two about drain cleaning over the years. To keep yourself educated and up-to-date, here are answers to some of the most common questions we're asked:

Q:How many times per year should I have my drains cleared?

A:That all depends on what's going down your drains and how often they're used. If you have a large family, leftover grease from food and hair from showers will cause clogs quickly. In this scenario, you should clear your drains often. If you live alone and don't use your kitchen or laundry drains often, you shouldn't have to clear them as frequently as a large family.

Q:More than one of my drains is moving slowly. What's happening?

A:When two or more drains are moving slowly, you may have a main sewer line problem. These clogs are often caused by wet wipes, tree roots, and kitchen grease.

Q:How do you clean clogged drains?

A:That depends on the type of drain that's clogged. You can clean sink drains with simple household items like vinegar and baking soda. Other drains, like bathtub drains, are best cleaned with a zip stick to remove hairballs. If you're unsure how to clean a clogged drain, it's always best to rely on professional plumbers like Delk Plumbing. Don't make the situation worse than it already is!

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCSC) - For the first time in seven years, homeowners and landowners in Moncks Corner will see a 15 percent property tax increase starting on October 1.

At the Moncks Corner Town Council meeting Thursday evening, the vote for a new budget was passed unanimously with only one member of the public providing input.

The economy, fuel prices and labor costs are all contributing factors according to Mayor Michael Lockliear, but the main reason for the increase is to afford and pay public employees.

“Retention has been very tough over the last year keeping employees,” Lockliear said. “Since other people are paying more around us, we had to step up and do the same thing.”

The tax hike means a homeowner with a property valued at $250,000 will have to pay $100 more per year on property taxes. Statistically, it is normal to increase taxes by about two-percent each year.

Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office Special Prosecutor Tyler Jenkins was the only one who asked a question during the public input portion of the meeting.

“My real question as far as the millage rate, 15 percent in one year seems like a pretty high number,” Jenkins said. “Was there any discussion about why that wasn’t incrementally put into place?”

In response, Lockliear said this is the first time in seven years that the city has had to increase property tax, which he is very proud of.

“We did it so we wouldn’t have to come back in two years and do it again,” Lockliear said. “As a resident of Moncks Corner, I’d much rather be taxed one time now and then another time in 10 years or so, but not every two years.”

Every year, the city government meets for a budget workshop where they go through the department by department and cut what is needed for a balanced budget. This year, Lockliear said they were short about $325,000 with the more expensive costs coming from health care and retirement benefits to public employees

“With that being done, it put a big dent in our budget,” Lockliear said. “That’s why the millage increase came and hopefully it will take us through the next six to seven-eight years.”

The new budget takes place from Oct. 1, 2022, until Sept. 30, 2023. Operating revenues will increase from $12,417,159 to $15,622,744 and operating expenditures will increase from $14,151,802 to $15,363,175.

What is holding up the new Publix shopping center in Moncks Corner?

UPDATE: After our report on Wednesday, DHEC reached out to News 2 letting us know they have approved the water permit, so the store can begin the process of opening. DETAILS HERE.

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCBD) – People living in Moncks Corner have been long awaiting the opening of a new Publix shopping center. While the grocery store appears to be ready to open, many are now wondering “what is the holdup?”

“If you live in the area, you are excited about the store coming in. What we’re not excited about is how long it’s taking for it to open,” said Robert Esclavon, who stops by the center occasionally to see its progress.

The 75,000 square-foot Publix at the new Moncks Corner Marketplace was announced about two years ago. Today, things basically look finished – there are grocery carts inside, fixtures in place, and shelves waiting to be stocked. But still, the store sits unopened.

Based on a January 2021 press release, the shopping center was slated for completion in June 2022, with Publix expected to open in fall 2022.

“The few people I run into say it looks like it could be mid-September before it opens. I don’t know if they know what they’re talking about, but for a store that’s complete – except for product on the shelves – it makes you wonder what’s holding it up,” said Esclavon.

Esclavon reached out to News 2 to find out what is going on. Leaders with the Town of Moncks Corner said they are waiting on final approval from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.

“Right now, we are just waiting on DHEC to approve the water supply system over there. All the engineering has been done- the water is clear, it’s just a matter of getting everything signed off on the state DHEC office and they’ll be able to start moving in people and supplies,” explained Douglas Polen, Moncks Corner Community Development Director.

One person, who was familiar with the construction project, said they had to wait a few weeks for Berkeley Water and Sanitation to get their water meters installed. That process is now complete, and they have been waiting on DHEC for the past week and a half.

Officials with DHEC tell News 2 they are going to see what they can do to expedite the rest of the approval process so the store can finally open for business.

Esclavon said that is why he called us for help.

“Just having you guys, like you guys research it a little bit and maybe you push them along to have this project move up … they’re ready to go, I think,” he said.

Moncks Corner officials said once DHEC gives its final approval, Publix could open in as little as three to four weeks.

Pedestrian safety concerns on Old Moncks Corner Rd. lead to more sidewalks

People who ride their bikes and walk in Goose Creek say they want to feel safer.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - People who ride their bikes and walk in Goose Creek say they want to feel safer. With the new construction of a large park and amphitheater near Old Moncks Corner Road, they say they wish they didn’t have to take a car and clog the roads.

John Polito, who lives in the area, says he wants his safety as a pedestrian to be just as prioritized as new construction.

“We have a lot of really great assets, but they’re not connected,” Polito said.

Polito has been riding his bike down Old Moncks Corner Rd. in Goose Creek for the last ten years. He frequently visits the Berkeley County Public Library in Goose Creek and South Berkeley Seniors Center located off this road. This is the same area that has the soon-to-be $9 million Center Creek Park and $4 million Joseph S. Daning Amphitheater. He says there are currently no sidewalks in this area to bring him to all these places.

“[One-percent] of the money that went into that park down there is all we need to build sidewalks, about 1,900 ft. of sidewalks from the park to the library, so everybody can safely get to the library and use it,” Polito said.

According to the #CreekRising Community Survey that the city released in May 2021, one of the top concerns amongst residents was accessibility and condition of transportation options, such as roadways, sidewalks, etc.

Crystal Reed, recreation director for the city, says they are in the engineering phase of building a 10 ft. trail on the opposite side of the street from the library and the park with crosswalks connecting to it.

“So, the goal for the rec department and the city is to provide entertainment, high-quality recreation in the area, so we can reduce car traffic and people can get to these places via these trails,” Reed said.

There is currently a trail across from the park, but not one that goes all the way to the library or senior center. The city says they cannot put a sidewalk on the same side of the road as these amenities because of gas lines, drainage and a cemetery.

Polito says he wants to see the plan and wishes they had it in the city’s comprehensive plan.

“We need council to get serious about safety and as serious about safety as they are about growth,” Polito said.

The city says there is currently no timeline on this project, and they don’t know how much it’s going to cost. They say it is not a recurring budget item, but this would be under a special project. It would be paid for by ARP funds and donations.

The ‘happy place’ for used books: Dreamalot Books emerging as a go-to hot spot in Moncks Corner

After an 18-year run in Goose Creek and unforeseen challenges presented by COVID-19, Dreamalot Books has gradually – but decidedly – gained a steady foothold in the Moncks Corner community as a welcoming haven of second-hand books for both area bibliophiles and those traveling in from Myrtle Beach and beyond to peruse the shop’s vast inventory at 1013 Old Highway 52.The woman behind the retail shop’s success and inevitable twists and turns over the past 23 years is Cherry Collins, a self-described “book a...

After an 18-year run in Goose Creek and unforeseen challenges presented by COVID-19, Dreamalot Books has gradually – but decidedly – gained a steady foothold in the Moncks Corner community as a welcoming haven of second-hand books for both area bibliophiles and those traveling in from Myrtle Beach and beyond to peruse the shop’s vast inventory at 1013 Old Highway 52.

The woman behind the retail shop’s success and inevitable twists and turns over the past 23 years is Cherry Collins, a self-described “book addict,” who would often resort to reading the backs of cereal boxes as a child in the absence of a paperback she could lose herself in.

“I skipped kindergarten, back then it wasn’t required because by the time I went to the first grade, I was reading on a fourth-grade level,” began the Lenoir, North Carolina native. “My dad said that I picked up a book and I never put one down. Needless to say, he was not surprised I opened a bookstore.”

What sets Dreamalot Books apart from other major book shops in the Lowcountry is the sense of familiarity regular clientele shares with Collins — commonly referred to as Miss Cherry — whose large indoor reservoir of more than 100,000 publications has maintained a quaintness that’s usually only found in much smaller shopping venues.

Dreamalot’s maze-like layout allows patrons to set off on their own personal journeys during which they may spend upwards of an hour combing through assorted categories of children’s books, romance novels, biographies and collector’s items that most adults haven’t read since they were carrying a lunchbox to elementary school.

Those who run out of time while scouring the seemingly boundless inventory will usually rush back the next day or later that same week to complete their quest for published treasures that typically go for anywhere from one to five dollars.

Miss Cherry’s ample hodgepodge of books are the result of numerous donations and trade-ins that keeps the in-store supply constantly circulating.

But while Miss Cherry has her hands full with paying the bills (rent, general overhead, etc.) and keeping her stock organized, she also serves the greater purpose of assisting customers by informing them of what’s available and even matching her store items with the literary tastes of a certain individual.

“It’s not always about the money, it’s more about getting the book where it needs to go, the person it needs to go to. That one was meant to go to her,” she says while checking out a happy consumer who had just purchased an old, hard-to-find copy of “Dick and Jane.”

Her personal, heartfelt relationship with books permeates the entire showroom, which attracts all types, including young, old, homeless folks and autistic individuals who’ve cultivated a special liking to Dreamalot.

“You get that used-bookstore feel, the home feel. You can’t get that in a new store. Everybody feels really comfortable in here. We have a lot of autistic children who come in. Autistic children, you know, are hard to take shopping. They don’t do well in stores. In here, the only problem I’ve ever had with autistic children is getting them to leave,” she quips.

“They like it; they like that there’s a maze through the shelves [and] that’s it’s closer and you can’t get a crowd of people around you. There are treasures to find. You can come in and be here all day and not see all of the treasures that are hiding in the nooks and crannies — and it constantly changes. You never know what you’re going to find.”

The fact that the Lowcountry’s baroness of fine books deals exclusively with low-priced used copy doesn’t compel her to announce sales and/or specials, which in this economy, she observes, has become essential for those struggling with car dues, home/education expenses and sundry forms of debt.

However, the real value presented by her treasure trove of books, according to Miss Cherry, is the “sanity” they offer to folks saddled with real-world problems who sometimes need an escape from the mundane.

Dreamalot also has a mini cafe’ rest area where people can sit and stay awhile while thumbing through their selected books or magazines of interest.

Recently, Collins has begun partnering with neighborhood “food fairies,” who regularly drop in and drop off boxes of edibles and other items for the homeless.

Yet all the hospitality and benevolence in the world doesn’t pay the light bill, and so to counter the rising costs of rent, utilities and other related expenses, the 23-year businesswoman has opted to carry goods other than books, such as toys, holiday decorations, DVDs, board games and a wide array of figurines.

What has truly caught fire at Dreamalot since moving to Moncks Corner is a growing allotment of puzzles, which has brought in new customers.

Financial demands aren’t the only hurdle Collins has had to grapple with in keeping the doors open, though, as she’s also negotiated her share of health concerns over the years, some of which have landed her in the hospital. Those physical issues prompted the longtime store owner to recruit Danielle Cutler Nabors as a business partner. The Pennsylvania-born mother of six, in fact, chips in with a lot of the heavy lifting.

Nabors, herself a voracious reader, enjoys listening to Collins dispense her encyclopedic knowledge as it pertains to authors and their literature.

When rattling off a list of writers she holds in high regard, Miss Cherry spoke glowingly of French novelist Jules Verne of “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” fame, as she deemed him “the last author who wrote anything original.”

Similarly, she lauded Simon Winchester — who counts “The Professor and the Madman” as his most heralded work — as an “awesome” writer with a unique style.

Conversely, Collins had no qualms critiquing Stephen King’s more recent literary productions, including “Under the Dome,” since the science-fiction master will sometimes regurgitate old scripts he previoulsy submitted for “The Twilight Zone” to generate content for his books — with the end result of having a fizzling effect.

Miss Cherry’s unfiltered insight on books and the people who write them is worth the price of admission for her legions of recurring customers, including “Penny,” who paid the bookstore a visit toward the end of The Berkeley Independent’s in-person interview.

“This is my happy place,” said the enthusiastic book connoisseur. “I love books, I love looking for them and finding things here that I’ve been looking for for a long time — it’s quite exciting. This is just a great, great place.”
