Sorry! American Plumbing Company, Baton Rouge, LA

A customer called thinking his a/c drain was stopped up due to his a/c not running. Once we were in his attic, we immediately knew he did not have a plumbing problem but an electrical problem. Can you tell why? #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #leakdetection, videopipeinspection

Buyers beware! American Plumbing Company, Denham Springs, LA

Looking at buying a home built in the 1980's? Check out the water piping. If you see gray polybutylene tubing, RUN AWAY! There is a reason this tubing has been banned in the U.S. and other countries. #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #leakdetection, #videopipeinspection, #waterheaters

Poor planning! American Plumbing Company, Port Allen, LA

When you plan poorly and do not use a licensed plumber, you build the kitchen cabinet around the water heater with NO accessibility! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #waterheaters, #leakdetection, #videopipeinspection

Avoid paying twice! American Plumbing Company, Baton Rouge, LA

A rental property customer called saying his tenants have not been able to drain their 2nd floor unit washing machine without it overflowing. Upon accessing the drain line we found it was over 18" too high and not vented due to an improper plumbing remodel. Now he is having to pay twice thanks, to an unlicensed plumber! Remember! An unlicensed plumber, IS NOT a plumber! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #leakdetection

Broken torque toilet flange? American Plumbing Company, May 2, 2019

Have a broken cast iron toilet flange and your plumber wants to replace it with a PVC torque toilet flange? You called the wrong plumber! We are constantly replacing failed PVC torque flanges that failed after only a couple of years compared to cast iron toilet flanges that consistently last over 20 years. Call American Plumbing today! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #brokentoiletflange, #leakdetection, #videopipeinspection

Don't waste your money! American Plumbing Company, Port Allen, LA

If you replace your water heater and need a water heater pan, do not make a mistake buying an undersized round water heater pan. They are too small and not deep enough to protect you and your home. #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #videopipeinspection, #leakdetection, #draincleaning, #backflowcertification

A great night! American Plumbing Company, Baton Rouge, LA

Last Thursday was a great night for the Empower 225 Gala! A lot of money was raised for our at risk kids, foster children program, child adoption program and anti-human trafficking program. Please remember Empower 225 throughout the year! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com

There's your problem! American Plumbing Company, Gonzales, LA

Customer called stating his washing machine would not drain and thought he had a drain problem. We found somebody installed a gate valve on the discharge hose with the valve turned off. That's a first! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com

We should demand better! American Plumbing Company, Baton Rouge, LA

The wife and I spent our weekend in Biloxi to see the Mariah Carey concert. While it was a great concert, she was 1 hour, 15 minutes late for the concert with no explanation. We expect better from our employees and as the paying public, we should demand better from our entertainers. #americanplumbingla.com

What's wrong with this picture? American Plumbing Company, Gonzales, LA

Notice what's wrong with the washing machine box connections? It has (2) p-traps buried in the slab and NO vent! This is what happens when you hire a contractor that tells you, not to hire a plumber and not to worry about a permit. He can handle everything. #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com
