Katy, TX is part of the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land Metropolitan area and is located in the center where Waller, Harris, and Fort Bend Counties converge together.
The town was originally named ‘Cane Island’ for all the bayous in the area and the invasive cane growing that was planted to make fur trapping an easier endeavor. The cane was gone by the 1820s.
Near the beginning of the 20th century, James Oliver Thomas planned the layout of a town. Soon after, Thomas’ post office application to find the town of Katy was official. The name came from the MKT Railroad Company.
The railroad helped build the town and supply its residents with necessary supplies. The MKT Railroad Company was frequently referred to as ‘K-T’ which eventually morphed into Katy, TX.
A century later, and Katy is still a coveted place to live in the Houston area. The historic town center, beautiful bayous, and friendly locals make it a wonderful place to call home.
bluefrog Plumbing + Drain are proud to serve Katy, TX as one of the most popular and relied upon plumbing services in the Houston Metroplex.
The Benefits and Drawbacks of Fracking
Ask a non-native what they think of when you mention Texas and chances are, they will mention oil. In the 1970s energy developers discovered a large shale of natural gas in the state.
Budding drilling technology has brought about the controversial practice of fracking. A couple of years ago, another shale rich in natural gas was located underneath Houston.
Despite the controversy, many people in the Houston region have an arrangement with oil companies to extract natural gas from deep underground. While the extra income is welcome, fracking can cost money too.
Fractured Drilling and Plumbing Problems
The fracking processes results in frequent, small earthquakes that can harm your underground plumbing resulting in expensive and time-consuming repairs.
Plumbing consists of joints and pipes that are best preserved when stationary. Fractured drilling uses sand, pressurized water, and chemicals to extract gas from the shale. The pressure and movement can burst pipes and damage the plumbing network.
The fracturing process put too much pressure on the plumbing pipes and joints leaving the flow of clean water and the disposal of sewage to struggle to perform these functions. The most common issues associated with are slab leaks and burst pipes.
