Blair Plumbing services

At Blair Plumbing, we know the meaning of emergencies and making repairs for common plumbing services. Even though we are family-owned and operated, we provide professional services on a larger scale all at affordable prices. To better serve the New Orleans community, we offer a variety of extensive services such as residential and commercial plumbing, water heater replacement and faucet leaks all under multiple branches. 

Residential Plumbing

Homeowners are often surprised to find out how many plumbing issues they will run into throughout their residence. Blair Plumbing comes to the rescue to take care of those essential services. From leaky faucets to toilet repairs to more in depth video camera pipe inspections for the sewer lines, all residential plumbing services are covered. Homeowners also enjoy the benefit of hiring legitimate technicians without the risk of having improper installations.

Commercial Plumbing

Owning a business is stressful but rewarding at the same time. If you experience a plumbing problem midway through a work day, you are bound to have an entire project to tackle in itself. To get the issue squared away and fixed quickly, we provide commercial plumbing services that range from common septic pump clogs, gas inspections by our leading gas technicians, backflow prevention (testing, filing, installing and repairing), as well as cleaning drains, grease traps and much more. 

Water Heater Replacement

One of the major services Blair Plumbing offers is water heater repairs, replacements and regular maintenance. They come in handy for everyday use of hot water and are especially necessary in businesses. Water heaters are generally very complex and can obtain a number of malfunctions such as faulty connections, leaks or thermostat failures. Hot water supply problems are highly encouraged for the hands of a professional as they can be dangerous. In order to keep a water heater running properly for decades to come, inspection is crucial and will save you money in the long run.

Faucet Leaks 

Faucet leaks are common yet detection is quite tricky. Over time, you will notice your water bill gets higher and damage to your ceilings, walls and floors are inevitable. Our plumbing experts are able to determine important factors such as the faucet type and model, identify pipe sources and mold growth, plus follow proper OSHA codes and more. Blair Plumbing is just a phone call away and will find the source to make those stubborn drip drops stop once and for all.

How do I know if my sewer line is clogged?

How do I know if my sewer line is clogged?

As a homeowner, it is always good to know your plumbing system is working properly. Otherwise, your pockets and drain pipes may be doomed for destruction. As wastewater accumulates in the sewer drain pipe, it is known to eventually affect all other drains as well. Checking to see if there are any signs of a clogged main sewer line could be the first step towards saving you money in the long run and getting a repair ASAP.

Gurgling Sounds

A gurgling sound coming from one of the main drain sources is usually linked to the toilet or drain. This will occur once you have flushed the drain. Oftentimes, the water levels will coincide from one fixture to the next, causing the gurgling sound to exit through another fixture. Not being able to properly flush is also an indicator that the sewer line is clogged and needs immediate repair. 

Foul Smells 

Any water fixtures known as secondary lines that produce foul smells suggest your sewer line is also clogged. Sewer drains contain wastewater which in turn leads to contamination and build-up bacteria in your home’s pipes. The water will come up through the floor drains and retain the smell through a sink, bathtub or toilet drain. 

Clogged Fixtures

Having clogged fixtures is one of the most obvious and easiest ways to know your sewer line is clogged and needs repair. The sink, tub and toilet are where you will notice main drain blockages. It is important to note that one of the adding factors to common sewer line clogging comes from improper disposal of flushing feminine products and other similar products causing slow drainage. Homeowners should also look out for their washing machine when in use as the water drainage from the machine can cause the tub to backup. 

Stemming from Tree Roots

That tree in your backyard might just give it away when hinting it is time to service the sewer line. This is especially true when the tree roots overgrow into the older pipes. Though not visible on-site, you will quickly notice the effects inside your home with clogged fixtures. This will certainly cause a clog so it will require a professional plumber to inspect, dig, cut and clear out the roots underground. Older corroded pipe removal might also be necessary. 

Lawn Changes

Your city’s sewage system is connected to your front lawn. Make sure to look out for markings in your lawn that suggest there is a break in the sewer system. If you are having trouble or are confused about locating specific indentations in your lawn, contact a professional plumber to inspect and make repairs.
