That's NOT leak free! American Plumbing, Baton Rouge, LA

A customer was noticing moisture and a sewer odor coming from underneath their crawl space home. Once accessing the home crawl space, the issue was found immediately. Somebody (NOT a licensed plumber) thought they were repairing a drain line. Apparently, they could not get the drain line to stay together. So, they screwed banding iron down to the drain line to hold it together. However, sewer water leaked through the screw holes. Imagine that! While creative, this is illegal and ineffective! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #leakdetection, #videopipeinspection, #drainlinerepair

It's not just an odor! American Plumbing, Gonzales, LA

The office staff in a multi-story large office building kept smelling a sewer odor. After a thorough investigation, an open vent pipe was located in a pipe chase. Note, the issue is not only the toxic smell but, it is also flammable. Expect quality!

The common denominator! American Plumbing Company, Baton Rouge, LA

The so-called intellectuals and fake news media are ignoring the obvious while looking for someone or something to blame for these domestic terrorists. None of these terrorists have any sign of God in their lives.

You hired the wrong plumber! American Plumbing, Gonzales, LA

If you hired a plumber to install copper water lines and instead he installed CPVC water lines painted gold to look like copper, YOU HIRED THE WRONG PLUMBER! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #leakdetection, #videopipeinspection, #cpvcpaintedgold

What did you save? American Plumbing, Denham Springs, LA

Instead of hiring a gas fitting licensed plumber, a customer hired their general contractor (NOT LICENSED in gas fitting) to modify their gas line. To transition the 1/2" gas line to a 3/4" gas line the contractor BEAT the 1/2" gas line into the 3/4" gas line, instead of using a reducing fitting. Time goes by and the customer begins to smell gas. The gas company pulls their gas meter and forces them to hire a licensed plumbing contractor that can pull a gas permit for inspection after the gas line is repaired legally. Needless to say, the customer not only ended up spending more money but, they put their lives at risk! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #videopipeinspection, #leakdetection, #gasleaks

You can't be scared! American Plumbing, Port Allen, LA

Maybe! American Plumbing, Baton Rouge, LA

A customer called complaining her daughter's bedroom floods when she runs her washing machine. While checking out her issue I found somebody playing plumber, illegally connected her washing machine drain to her hall tub waste & overflow. She stated that she just bought the home. She would have definitely benefitted from a home inspection! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #leakdetection, #videopipeinspection, #washingmachinedrain

A lizard? American Plumbing, Gonzales, LA

A customer called complaining about his tankless water heater making noises. What did we find? A dead lizard in the fan motor. You just never know! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #leakdetection, #videopipeinspection, #tankless water heater

Of course! American Plumbing, Port Allen, LA

Occasionally, we run across an inside non-condensing tankless water heater that started leaking causing damage below due to NO water heater pan. When we point this out to the customer, we always get the same reply. We were told we DID NOT need a water pan! Foolish! Remember to protect yourself and your property. Regardless of tank type water heater, condensing tankless water heater and non-condensing tankless water heater ALWAYS install a water heater pan! #americanplumbingla.com, @americanplumbingla.com, #leakdetection, #videopipeinspection, #tanklesswaterheaterpan

Of course we're open! American Plumbing, Baton Rouge, LA

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
