For homeowners and business owners who know where the main shut-off valve is, we recommend turning it off to minimize the damage. If you know which fixture has a leak, you can turn off the water at the individual shut-off valve. Typically, you can find shut offs for toilets and sinks under the fixture close to the wall. The main shut-off may be in the laundry room or kitchen or outside of an older home.
If your traditional or tankless hot water heater causes a plumbing issue, it’s a good idea to turn off the appliance, then kill the power to it at the circuit breaker. This can help you avoid scalding or injuries from pressure buildup.
Leaks are the #1 emergency plumbing we encounter. You can also try to isolate remaining leaks if you’re feeling ambitious. Put waterproof containers in place to catch drips and leaks until our experienced plumber arrives to resolve the problem. Cautiously mop up excess water to avoid slipping.
If you have slow or stopped drains, the culprit is typically a tough clog of hair, oil, grease and other debris. For the toughest clogs, we may use a toilet auger or snake to dislodge the blockage. If that doesn’t work, we can use gentle chemical cleaners to dissolve the clogs and restore free-flowing waste-water capability.

I had Patrick with Blue Frog Plumbing out to my house today and he was wonderful. I had a problem with low water pressure and two other plumbing companies could not figure it out. Patrick has 30 years of experience and was able to fix our problem. Blue Frog has my business from now on. Thank you.
Patrick was friendly and professional! Montana dispatched him promptly when I called, and Patrick took care of my plumbing issue quickly! I really appreciate the efficiency and quality work. Thanks bluefrog Plumbing + Drain!
Patrick was wonderful! I had him come address a few issues, including my master bathroom shower water pressure. The water pressure has been so low for years that I had been using the guest bathroom. After Patrick finished his repairs, my master shower had better water pressure than before! I finally have my master bathroom back! Thank you!
