A bluefrog Plumbing + Drain, we love seeing our customers in the area for plumbing maintenance and inspections, repairs, and installing new fixtures, things that make their lives better at home. When those customers need an emergency plumber, they know we’re the licensed emergency plumbers they can trust, and we know them and their home’s plumbing. Emergencies can be stressful, but knowing who to call to deal with it makes it a whole lot easier. Once we’re on our way, you know things are going to get better.
Checking Out Your Plumbing Concerns Is Part of Our Job
When you call us for a big job or a small one, we’re ready to share information about other concerns you have about your plumbing. Not everyone knows what’s a sign of trouble on its way, and what’s normal, but we can help you sort out your questions. Maybe you’ve been hearing a loud “bang” when your dishwasher or washing machine cycles. You probably just need a water hammer arrestor device to handle the pressure spikes these machines create. That’s a quick repair, and an easy way to avoid wear and tear on your plumbing valves and appliances, resulting in appliance repair or an emergency plumber visit.
Water Heater Inspections Make a Lot of Sense
Another important way we can help is by keeping an eye on the state of your water heater. There are several issues to consider, some of which affect the quality and quantity of your hot water. Other concerns affect the lifespan of your hot water tank, as there’s equipment inside that helps reduce corrosion of the lining. If your hot water heater has been neglected for too long, we might find that it’s already time to plan a replacement before an emergency plumber visit is needed and sometimes, a serious cleanup and remodeling job if you have a finished basement nearby.
Little Issues That Become Big Issues, Like Your Drains and Sewer Line
Over time, material accumulates on the inside of your drain pipes and in your sewer line. The more material sticks to the pipe walls, the more additional material joins it. If your pipes are corroded, that encourages future clogs as well. Not every toilet overflow or sink disaster is a sudden problem from a flushed or lost object going down the drain, many are the culmination of years of accumulation, finally coming to the point where it’s time to get the mop and call the emergency plumber. Clogs that develop over time can appear anywhere in your home’s drain plumbing, and in your sewer line. One way we can help you avoid backups and emergency plumber visits is by regular drain cleaning service, where we clear the accumulated material from the pipes and reset the clock on any developing clogs.
Signs of Sewer Trouble? We Can Check It Out and Talk About Options Before Things Get Messy
There are several ways that sewers can go bad, especially ones that have been around a long time. People dread the major work that’s involved in a sewer line replacement, but knowledge is power and, these days, often provides a chance to choose a less disruptive option for repairing the main sewer line. If foul odors are coming up the pipes, multiple drains are backing up, especially in the basement, or your drains are reversing when heavy rains come, that’s time for an emergency plumber visit or at least, a speedy consultation.
If you have a sewer concern, we’ll run a small video camera through the line and inspect it, noting whether there are clogs, tree root intrusions, damage from crushing forces such as trucks driving over the pipe, or cracks from shifting soil. If the pipe is old enough, corrosion or other decay could also be an issue. This is a time when we’re really glad to know our Timberlane, LA clients because we can work side by side to develop a plan and resolve this major concern. Depending on the problem, we can actually patch or re-line the pipe or use very high-pressure water to blast a large clog out of the way.
Little Problems Interfere with Your Life, We Can Clear Them Up
If you’ve gotten used to pushing the hot water handle harder each time to shut it off, or your toilet never seems to stop filling, your shower bathes your feet and drains slowly, or your showerhead doesn’t have the pressure it once had, you don’t have to put up with these. In fact, many small plumbing issues can cost you on your water bill or, as you push the hot water handle, eventually result in damage and a fixture repair or replacement. If you have a list of little problems like these, why not call us for a repair visit and get to know us?
Water Line Problems Can Be Hard to Detect at First
Besides sewer problems, water line issues are some of the biggest problems we deal with. Sometimes they’re just a little leak in the wall that damages some wallpaper, other times the first sign is a budget-busting water bill. Leaks in your pressurized water line can have many causes, including pipe joint issues, damage from remodeling, degradation of your home’s piping, and corrosion from hard water. We have equipment that can help avoid major leaks, prevent wall and ceiling removal to look for leaking pipes, and save time on repairs. Our technology is a great way to sort out many water line problems directly and detect them when they’re still small.
