Call your local state representative and tell them to vote no to HB 1048. This bill dumbs down the plumbing industry and is a direct attack on the citizens of Louisiana.
Think twice before you let somebody run a yard drain across your main sewer line. This yard drain put so much pressure on the main sewer line that the main sewer line became disconnected.
Wake up to slow drains? Don't rush to call a plumber. It may a city issue. Before calling a plumber, check with your neighbors to see if they are stopped up too.

This is a busted drain line at a customer's home. When our plumber quoted the customer a price to repair the busted drain line the customer asked, can't you repair it with a rubber boot? Really?

A customer called about the internal vessel on his pressure assist toilet leaking. The toilet is about 1 1/2 years old and past the normal warranty period. A new vessel for the toilet was going to cost over $200.00. I told him to contact the manufacturer to see if they would send him a vessel for free. He called, he asked and they did. It never hurts to ask!

Below is a home where the customer wanted a quote to replace their main sewer line. Upon arrival I found the washing machine draining to outside of their home due to constant backing up when the washing machine drained into the drain line. This is an indication of a busted drain line in the slab. I told the customer they may have 2 issues.
Attached is a video of water flowing through a 2" drain line. Why is it so noisy?
Tuesday is a great day to replace that old toilet. Call American Plumbing today!
Yesterday, my wife dragged through Dillard's while walking through the Mall of Louisiana and this moron was at the counter. Who dresses these Obama supporters?
Ever notice those people on social media posting old pictures of themselves fishing for compliments, just because father or mother time has caught up with them and they are too lazy to exercise and eat right? Don't be mad that you are still doing what you have always done (which is nothing) and now you are 50 lbs. overweight with cottage cheese thighs, a dimpled butt and a waist line that sticks out farther than your chest. Grow up, quit making excuses and exercise! It is amazing what 1 hour of exercise 4 times a week will do. Not to mention, you will feel better about yourself, less critical of others and start posting current pictures of yourself. So, quit watching Honey Boo Boo and The Housewives of Beverly Hills and get moving. Get more involved with your life and pay less attention to the lives of white trash!
A local Chiropractic office was constantly stopping up. The culprit? Not enough fall! Drain lines must have a downhill slope.
A customer complained about his drinking water smelling like sewer. Upon inspection we found his sewer line stopped up and broken. His water line was is rusted out, leaking and on top of the sewer line. Result? Sewer water entering the drinking water.
A customer complained about smelling a sewer odor. While checking out the odor, all I could smell were the dogs and cats in the home.
Time to call American Plumbing to repair those plumbing emergencies you put off over the weekend.
