You and your family, your loved ones, and even your pets depend on clean water and a high-functioning plumbing system. More than four billion people in the world do not have access to clean water or sanitation services. While many people in the States forget how important clean running water and good plumbing are to the comfort of their lives.
Just for a moment imagine that you do not have clean running water, flushable toilets, or a place to shower without unknown microbes and bacteria inside of the water you’re washing with.
Plumbing may seem like a strong utility that is built to deal with the worst accidents and nasty weather, but the truth is the plumbing system in a home is actually very delicate, and depending on the age and material of the plumbing system can be even more vulnerable to disastrous events.
An emergency plumber is going to cost more money. If it is late at night, on a weekend, or a holiday the price is going to go up further. Many emergency plumbing services use these unfortunate circumstances to pad their profit margin by a considerable amount.
Prevention Is Prudent While Hiring An Emergency Plumber Is Exorbitant!
The truth is that sometimes bad stuff just happens no matter how well you take care of your plumbing, nor how careful you are with your plumbing system. It is just a bit of bad luck from time to time.
However, a lot of homeowners completely ignore the health of their plumbing and take that hot bath at night and steamy dishwasher for granted until something starts spewing out water, drains refuse to empty, or the toilet does not flush.
There are a few things you can do to protect your plumbing system. The first thing is to be very cautious about what you put down in the sink, drains, and toilets. bluefrog has been called out to fish out a child’s toy that has worked its way deep down into the pipes under the floor of the toilet and causing sewage and bacteria to flood the bathroom floor.
Also, do not believe what you read on things that are supposedly “flushable.” The only things that should enter your plumbing are thin liquids, human waste, toilet paper, and some female hygiene products. Baby wipes, paper towels, harsh cleansers bought at grocery stores are all going to cause you trouble and may require an emergency plumber in Timberlane, LA.

That is why we strongly suggest that you consider having your plumbing system evaluated annually or semi-annually to make sure everything is in working order and problems are caught early before an expensive visit from an emergency plumber is absolutely necessary.
bluefrog offers a subscription service that is a much more affordable way to maintain the integrity of your plumbing system than relying on an emergency plumber who may or may not be trustworthy or even equipped with the skills or education to fix your plumbing issue.
Yes, a subscription will cost you a monthly investment or if you pay for the year (a discount will be applied) but if you wait until something heinous like a slab leak occurs to your plumbing system you will wish you had budgeted for a subscription service that keeps an eye on all the components of your plumbing system in your home.
“A few years ago, the main pipe underneath our house broke completely in half. We hired company after company to fix this slab leak, but none of them kept their promises. The prices kept getting higher and higher and the time to finish the task took longer and longer.
Eventually, after firing three different plumbers we found Timberlane, LA bluefrog Plumbers. They regarded our situation as a priority and sent an emergency plumber within a day. They were honest about the cost and how long it would take to fix the issue and suggested that if we could afford it to stay at a hotel. We did just that and had a three-day vacation which our entire family needed after living with sludge in our house for nearly two weeks.
When the emergency plumber and their team were finished fixing the issue, the house was cleaner than before the leak exploded. The costs were fair and affordable and we have not had any problems with our plumbing system since. We signed up immediately for their annual check-up option and happily paid them for the year in advance to gain the discount. Our emergency plumber and an ordinary plumber will always be bluefrog for as long as we live in this part of Louisiana! Thank you bluefrog!”
“I put off calling a plumber for the standing water in my bathtub for nearly a month. Slowly, other appliances connected to the plumbing system stopped working. The toilet was the second thing to stop working, the kitchen sink would not drain, the dishwasher had moldy-smelling water that was not clean after the dishwasher was used, and finally, the washing machine would not drain of dirty water.
Lucky for us bluefrog had an emergency plumber appointment open the day when we realized that we could not put off getting the plumbing fixed for any longer. Plus, our house was starting to attract flies and other bugs (even roaches) and we could not deal with the gross situation our home was in any longer.
bluefrog was honest about the severity of our situation and it was bad. The pipes and joints had been corroded and were also twisted up with thick, enormous tree limbs. We had to remove the giant oak in our backyard. The bluefrog gang got us sorted out at an affordable price and most importantly they did it very quickly and left the house spotless, not to mention the guys who fixed our problems were an absolute joy to be around!
