We know that a burst pipe can be incredibly stressful and very messy as well and can happen at the worst possible time. The last time you want before you must go to work or take the kids to school is for the water heater to fail or the toilet to be blocked. Even if you wanted to, you probably do not have the time to fix the problem. Take the stress out of the situation and call bluefrog Plumbing so we can send a good plumber around to you.

You may have noticed that the water is taking longer and longer to disappear down the sink. This points to a clog forming in your pipework. Clogs are caused by things like grease, food, hair, and coffee grinds sticking to the insides of the pipes. These materials accumulate over time and will eventually block the pipe if not taken care of.
A good plumber will recommend that you do not pour too many harsh chemicals down the drain to clear the clog. These could corrode old pipework and joints and cause leaks. Also, the clog may not be anywhere near the drain so the chemicals will have little or no effect. You need to call bluefrog plumbing so we can send a plumber around to clear the clog.
A blocked toilet is one of our worst nightmares. Whatever is causing the blockage you do not want the toilet to overflow. A good tip is not to keep re-flushing a blocked toilet, the water has bacteria in it and your health is at risk if it overflows. Just like a sink, there are many materials that you should not flush down a toilet, wet wipes, sanitary products, and tissue paper just to name a few. None of these items are made to dissolve quickly in water. They can build up over time if not flushed away properly and block your toilet. Any plumber will tell you that only human waste, toilet paper, and some gentle cleaners should go down the toilet.
Sewer Lines Cleaning, Repair and Replacement
All that grease and other no-no items you put down your sink and toilet could also cause your sewer line to block. New Orleans, LA has a ‘fatberg’ problem. These are giant balls of accumulated fat and other materials several feet across that have the potential to block main arteries in the main sewer network. Smaller ones can easily block your home’s sewer line. A blocked sewer line has the potential to be a serious health hazard, as sewage can back up into your home.
If one than one sink or toilet is not draining away and you hear gurgling sounds or even discolored water backing up, you need to call us straight away. A plumber from bluefrog will use a video camera on the end of a flexible wire to first find the blockage. If they find no damage around the blockage, they will use a technique that converts the grease into CO2 and water to ensure that the grease is fully removed from your sewer line. Should the sewer line be damaged, then we would have to recommend either replacing it or relining the inside of the old pipe with special plastic material. Whatever work needs doing you be sure Bluefrog plumbing will be on hand to help.
