The screws don't belong there! American Plumbing

After opening up a wall to investigate a water leak from the wall it was discovered the sheetrock installer screwed the sheetrock to the (2) water lines and (1) drain line riser. The screws belong in the studs! Not in the water and drain lines! Maybe he should have marked the location of the water and drain lines before hanging the sheetrock.

Before it was cool! American Plumbing

For years, my golf buddies and I have been practicing social distancing without even knowing by walking the golf course with pushcarts when we play golf. The average 18-hole golf course is about 6 miles. So, don't be a SLUG! Stay out of that golf cart and walk the course. It's SAFE and HEALTHY!

Ignore or obey? American Plumbing

Since the Coronavirus shelter in place order, the plumbing repair calls have slowed down tremendously affecting the bottom line. So, when faced with a 90+ year old widow woman with a busted water heater that cries when you tell her she has no choice but to replace her water heater. Knowing she has no money, what do we do? Tell her to call us back when she has the money or ignore the current financial slowdown and bless her with a new water heater at no cost. The Lord told us to bless her with a new water heater and we did! Thanks to Coburn's for selling us the water heater at a discounted rate. Call American Plumbing today!

Only flush toilet paper! American Plumbing

After receiving a call from a public official concerned with the New Orleans sewer pumps stopping up with paper towels, facial tissue and baby wipes, I contacted all of my plumbing board on how to respond. After unanimous agreement, I have instructed the Louisiana State Plumbing Board to advise all licensed master plumbers to educate and advise their customers to only flush toilet paper. We will also be reaching out to all municipalities to help us out. Remember! Follow the advice of the experts and ONLY FLUSH TOILET PAPER and call American today! #americanplumbing, #leakdetection, #draincleaning, #slableak, #backflowcertification, #howbigisyourGOD, #onlyflushtoiletpaper

Textbook stupidity! American Plumbing

Just another example of why not to reroute drain lines that are busted in the slab. Not to mention how terrible this looks. Due to the fact that they DID NOT remove and replace the bad section of drain line, the drain line has continued to break away to the next fixture. This is textbook stupidity of both the homeowner and the person that performed this TERRIBLE work. This homeowner was STUPID for thinking they were going to save money by not having the drain line repaired correctly the first time. Now they will be paying triple the cost! Protect yourself!
