This is a good question because the inexperienced plumber is often just as bad as having no plumber at all. For example, leaks can be hard to detect, often the first signs are low water pressure or increased water bills. A skilled plumber from bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of New Orleans uses their vast experience to quickly find the location and then fix it. A less-skilled one will take longer to resolve the problem.
When Do You Need a Plumber?
bluefrog Plumbing offers a complete range of top-quality plumbing services.
Drain Cleaning: Have you noticed that your sink is taking forever to drain? Is the same happening in your bathtub or
shower? The likely cause is that clogs are growing in your drainpipes. This problem is only going to get worse if you take no action, and eventually, you will see standing water because the drainpipes are blocked.
A common solution is to pour strong chemicals down the drain to remove these blockages, and perhaps this will work. But, if the clog is located far from the drain, then the chemicals may not even reach the clog. Overuse of harsh chemicals could even corrode older pipework and joints and cause a leak.
Well-established clogs will be hard to remove safely, and the best way to do it is to use a professional drain cleaning service from bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of New Orleans.
Sewer and Water Lines
Have you ever wondered what happens to all that dirty water that goes down your sink? Well, it flows into your sewer line and then into the municipal sewer network. Should your sewer line be blocked or damaged for any reason, the wastewater cannot escape into the main sewer network and will back up into your home.
The first sign of this is discolored water gurgling back into your sink or your toilet. If this happens stop flushing your toilet and stop using water appliances as this will make the problem worse. You could even cause the toilet to overflow onto your floor, and this is not a mess you want to clean up.
This is a job best left to a plumber from bluefrog Plumbing, who are equipped with protective clothing to keep them safe from those dangerous germs and bacteria.
We have specialized equipment to locate and determine the extent of any blockage or damage. It may be a case of using a hydro jet to remove any blockages, and clogs, or to replace damaged sewer lines. Whatever is required we will talk through all the options with you.
It is not always easy to spot a leak. If your water line has sprung a leak, it may be a long time before you notice a problem. If the leak is under your garden, you may notice that your lawn is lush and green even during a dry period. Inside, you may notice damp patches on your floor and walls, or cracks appearing around your house. A leak is wasted money as you are paying for water that you are not using. If you think that you have a leak, then call bluefrog straight away.
There is no better way to start the day than to wake up to a hot shower. We take hot water for granted until something goes wrong. If your water heater breaks down, that means no hot water for cleaning yourself and your family and no hot water to clean clothes or prepare food.
It is just as well that you can rely on a plumber from bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of New Orleans, LA to come to your aid. We offer a 24/7 emergency plumbing service to keep you and your family safe.
bluefrog’s Tips to Prevent These Problems
- Drain Cleaning – Stop pouring grease and food down your sink. These materials are the main causes of clogs by sticking to the insides of your drainpipes. Over time they will build up and cause a blockage. Prevent this from happening by putting food and grease in the compost.
- Sewer and Water Lines – Whatever causes a clog or blockages in your drainpipe is going to do the same to your sewer line. Similarly, putting the wrong materials down the toilet can also cause blockages in the sewer network. The only things you should put down the toilet are human waste, toilet tissue, water, and the occasional use of gentle cleansers. People still put face tissues and sanitary products down the toilet. These are not designed to dissolve quickly in water and are at the root of many blockages.
- Leak Detection – If you think that you have a leak on your property, there is a good way to be sure. First, make sure all your taps are turned off. Then, turn all your water appliances off, there should be no water flowing through your water meter, and no movement on the dials. If the dials are turning, you have a leak somewhere. And you need to call bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of New Orleans before you suffer any further water damage.
- Water Heaters – The best way to avoid any emergency repairs to your water heater is to have it regularly serviced by a skilled plumber from bluefrog Plumbing + Drain of New Orleans, LA. The routine service will include many checks to ensure that it is working safely. A bonus is that your heater will be running more efficiently and reducing your energy bills.
