Environment PollutionOnce a prosperous manufacturing town, Flint, MI is now in the throes of municipal water crisis in which the municipal water supply has been contaminated with lead due to corroded piping. Though instances such as these are rare, Flint’s water crisis has reignited the great debate over tap water quality and whether bottled is better. Is it?

Flint residents are being given bottled water until the pipes that contaminated the water supply are repaired. This measure is only temporary, however. Aside from repairing the corroded pipes, the most effective long term solution with the lowest environmental impact would be the installation of water filters. That’s why 300 volunteer union plumbers from across the country came to Flint in order to install new plumbing fixtures and water filters for residents at no cost! This allowed households to forego their daily ration of bottled water and conveniently enjoy clean, safe water right on tap!

At Bienvenu Brothers, we understand how real concerns over tap water quality can be! We offer a range of services to address these concerns and find the right solution. Whether you’re exploring treatments for hard water in New Orleans or want to have new plumbing fixtures installed, you can rely on Bienvenu Brothers to get the job done!

Here are a few reasons why our plumbers believe in drinking tap water.

It’s budget friendly

Thanks to advertising and flashy packaging, you might think bottled water is sourced from a remote, mountain spring but in reality many brands are just purified tap water sold at 2,900 times the cost. Switching to tap water is an easy way to save!

It’s also environmentally friendly

Tap water is easy on your pocketbook and the environment. The average American uses 167 bottles of water each year but only 38 of those are recycled, wasting $1 billion in plastic. This causes a huge burden for landfills.

Stricter water quality standards

Municipal water supplies are subjected to rigorous testing in order to ensure a high level of tap water quality thanks to the passing of the Safe Water Drinking Act in 1974. Some municipal water supplies are even tested hourly! While bottled water is also regulated, standards for purity aren’t as high.

It might be healthier

Plastic is bad for the environment and your body. Though most bottled water brands advertise BPA-free plastic water bottles, they still may contain immune-disrupting chemicals that can seep into the water over time and especially after heat exposure. Bottled water may even contain phthalates.

Drink to your health and the health of the environment by tapping into water right from your faucet! Let Bienvenu Brothers help you discover what’s on tap in New Orleans!

We have used Bienvenu Brothers several times over the last few years, and we have always been extremely satisfied with the service and quality work. Bienvenu always makes every effort to get someone out as soon as possible. They just finished a job that has increased my respect even more. Seven weeks ago, to the day, one of our bathrooms backed up in the early afternoon. Bienvenu had a sewer cleaning truck out later that day. Unfortunate, they were unable to clear the line and it was determined that we needed video inspection to determine the problem. When the video crew came out they determined that there was a problem with the parish sewer line. The parish would come but couldn’t clean the line because of a lift station problem. This repeat every couple of days for weeks. Keith and Louis made calls and did all they could to try to get the problem resolved. Finally, the parish fixed the lift station, cleared the line and corrected an issue with our connection to the main line. The next day, today, Bienvenu had Frank and his crew out, and they made the necessary repair to my line in a couple of hours. FINALLY, we can again use our own shower and toilet. Keith and Louis were persistent in trying to keep things moving, and Frank did a quick and great job of finishing up. I can’t imagine ever using anyone else!

Dear Bienvenu Brothers, I am way behind in my correspondence, but I wanted to thank you for the quick, efficient, honest service I received on December 19, 2011. My hot H2O heater went out. I called Bienvenu Brothers because of a recommendation. It was so close to the holidays, but yet you made it possible for my family to take hot showers that night. The computer board went out, and Kirk said it was under warranty and only charged me for the service fee. Since I had never used you before, I was amazed. Thanks for everything!

I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding service on my new State water heater. I bought the unit from Coburn’s and my husband and a friend installed it. It kept coding out and would not work. I called the manufacturer (State) and they recommended that I call you guys. Vint came out and did some troubleshooting. He contacted State Technical Support, and they sent the part over-night to me. Unfortunately, when the new part was installed, it still did not work, so I called Vint, and he called State again for another part. I have never had such wonderful customer service and was very impressed with the employees’ diligence in staying on top of the matter. Vicki called me to set up my appointments and was so sweet and friendly. Louis Bienvenu originally took my call and was very attentive to my problem and made everything happen. It was a very pleasant experience all the way around, and I just wanted to say “THANKS!”  Next time I have a plumbing problem, I will definitely be giving you guys a call. Thanks again and may God bless you, your family and your business!

To Louis and all the Bienvenu Brothers: A very gracious thank you! Your help over this last weekend with my grandmother’s house is sincerely appreciated by our family. Everyone we spoke with was kind and very helpful. The no charge for the service was over the top! Bless you and your family.

Dear Keith: A brief thank you note for your help with our recent plumbing problems. We were appreciative of your prompt attention. You, Kirk, Louis, Robbie and Chris were all extremely professional, good attitudes and were very efficient. We would recommend you highly to anyone we know needing plumbing-heating-cooling repairs. Again, thank you.

Dear Mr. Bienvenu: Thank you so much for allowing us to pay off our new hot water heater. I also appreciate your help with this costly bill, and also with the excellent service we received from your Technicians. We look forward to doing business with you again in the future.

Dear Sirs: Just to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. You all did a wonderful job and people have given you praise.

Dear Mr. Bienvenu: I wish to commend your entire staff for helping me get my mom’s sewer problem handled in an efficient and effective manner. Your office assistant (I’m sorry I don’t remember her name listened to my plight and relayed my concerns to the plumber. Louis Jr worked with me over the course of two days assuring me that he would give the problem his best effort but could not guarantee we wouldn’t have to dig up the entire front yard. His integrity and dedication got the job done! And then the gentleman (I think his name was Rick) who my mom talked with, assured her that her bill could be paid over a few months’ time, which is “life saving” to an elderly person on a fixed income, who wishes to remain independent. I could not have asked for more. 

Mrs. F.

Just wanted to pass on my sincere appreciation for everything you did with my tankless water heater. Hope I don’t have to call anytime soon.
