Offering an Incomparable Plumbing Service
We offer a full range of plumbing services to both residential and business customers. These include: emergency plumbing service, drain cleaning, the installing and repairing of tankless water heaters, leak detection and repair, sewer and water line repairs, toilet repair, and many others.
Emergency Plumbing Service
A plumbing emergency can happen at any time. They usually occur when you least expect them to. While it is tempting to try to fix the problem yourself, you can often make matters worse. An ‘Expert’ on YouTube can show you how to fix any problem in five-minutes.
Some jobs are easy to repair, but many are not, and should be left to the real experts at bluefrog. There is no shame in admitting that a job is beyond you, so give us a call and we will send one of our experienced technicians around to help you.
Cleaning drains is one of our specialties. If your drains are starting to empty slower and slower, you have a clog in your pipes. Clogs are caused by a build-up of grease, food, hair, coffee grinds, and other materials over time.
The pipes will block completely if you ignore the problem. We at bluefrog Plumbing + Drain, have many technicians who are highly experienced in the cleaning and repairing of drains that have become clogged or damaged.
Installing and Repairing Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters take up less space than a conventional type because they do not need a large external storage tank. They are more energy-efficient and have a life expectancy of up to 20 years if they are properly maintained.
Water flows into the unit when hot water is required, flowing through a coil system to heat water on demand. With so many tankless water heaters on the market, it can be difficult to decide what unit to select. Picking an underpowered unit may cause the unit to shut down if there are too many demands on it. We at bluefrog can help you decide which is the best unit for you, by considering both your current and future hot water needs.
Leak Detection and Repair
Some leaks can be hard to detect and may have been running for a long time, the first sign is often an unusually large water bill. An undetected leak is likely to be causing a considerable amount of water damage.
Many homes are built on concrete slabs. Over time as the house settles, damage could occur to water or sewer pipes under the house. If you notice the pooling of water around the perimeter of your house or that your lawn is very green even if it has not rained for a while, you could have a slab leak.
These slab leaks could be causing substantial structural damage to your foundation. You need to call bluefrog immediately, the longer you wait the greater the damage and the higher the subsequent repair bill.
If you can still hear the water flowing after you have flushed the toilet you may have a problem with the adjustable float. This float controls the water level in the toilet. If it is set too low the water will overflow into the toilet and the fill valve will not shut off.
Flushing materials such as wet wipes and sanitary products down toilets will cause them to block and overflow. These cannot be easily dissolved in water and may cause a blockage further down the pipework. An overflowing toilet is a serious health hazard. Do not attempt this work yourself; our plumbing technicians carry protective gear to keep them safe.
Sewer Line Cleaning, Repair, and Replacement in Richmond, VA
Repeated clogging of your drains probably means that you have a problem with your sewer line. Grease poured down your sink can stick to the inside of the sewer pipe causing a buildup of a clog. Flushing non-dissolvable materials such as wet wipes down the toilet can cause the clog to quickly grow. The roots from a nearby tree can also damage the sewer line causing a leak to occur.
It may be possible to reline the existing sewer line without the need for digging them up. But depending on the extent of the damage the sewer line may need to be replaced. Whatever needs doing, you can rest assured that we have an appropriate plumbing service for all our customers.
