Branch Brothers Plumbing Blog

Focused on plumbing services in Shreveport and Bossier City.

Clogged pipes are a nuisance, all year long.  To avoid clogged pipes, be mindful of what you put down the drains in your house.  Here’s a quick list:

Kitchen Sink

  • Eggshells
  • Grease, Fat, and Oils of any kind
  • Coffee Grounds
  • Food stickers or tags
  • Paper Towels

Bathroom Sink and Toilet

  • Hygiene Products
  • Condoms
  • Diapers
  • Flushable Kitty Litter
  • Chemicals like Nail Polish and Nail Polish Remover

If You Have a Clog

Smaller stoppages, slowdowns, and backups can often be cleared with a plunger or a drain chemical like Drano. (Be careful with a drain cleaner chemical if you have a septic tank, like many do in rural Louisiana.) If these steps don’t work, you’ll probably need a licensed plumber with professional equipment. 

Our licensed plumbers will be able to diagnose and remove the clog quickly. With more than 30 years in the plumbing business, we are an experienced team who will find what’s going on with your plumbing system, and resolve it.

If necessary, sewer stoppages can be investigated and diagnosed through the use of a camera inspection. We have this capability. This helps us identify where the blockage is located, whether it’s in the main line or any of the other sewer lines in your home. It will also alert us to damaged areas (if any).

Trust us with your clogs and any plumbing issues!  We’re Branch Brothers Plumbing serving Shreveport and Bossier City.
