Plumbing and sanitation services are easy to take for granted until the toilet will not flush and you cannot get a plumbing service out to your house for a few days or even a week. Living in a home or working in an office with a single bathroom that does not flush can get gross and unsanitary pretty quickly.

Plumbing Conduct and Care
So many people treat their plumbing system as a garbage bin. What they do not realize is putting anything down a drain or toilet that is not specifically meant for the toilet, that can cause massive damage too. When companies claim that wet wipes, feminine products, paper towels, cigarette butts, or anything that does not directly come from a human body or toilet paper are generally using this assumption as a marketing tool.
Believe it or not, the plumbing system of every building is delicate. The tubes and joints that make up the plumbing network are made to last many years and most homes in Myrtle Beach, SC have access to the municipal sewage system which takes the waste away from your home or business and disposes of it properly.
Items like oatmeal, flour, coffee grinds, mashed potatoes, hair, and any food or material that will harden over time. The water pressure is not always strong enough to carry away these things into the municipal waste system. This is how clogs are formed. You have no idea how many times we have been called out to a home to snake a child’s toy out of a toilet.
Talk to your family members, particularly children, about the importance of taking care of the plumbing system or you are going to need a plumbing service again and again.
Heating, Vents, and Air Conditioning Systems (HVAC)
However, when you first move into a new home it does not come with a manual. It is vital to become familiar with all the major appliances and plumbing services that you will be responsible for maintaining. The heating, vent system, and air conditioning appliances are all creature comforts that require regular (at least annually) inspections. The vents, filters, and furnaces collect shedded skin and other debris so the air filters in your home need to be changed often and on a regular basis.
Drains are one of the most important components of the plumbing system. The drains are connected throughout the pipes inside your home. If one drain gets clogged and is not resolved, it could lead to the dishwasher, tub, shower, washing, machine, and toilet all being out of service. Standing water in the dishwasher is not fit for use and dirty water molding away in a washing machine is not going to do anything but ruin your clothes. Standing water in any plumbing utility is a huge red flag and you will need to call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing Service in Myrtle Beach right away!
“Our two teenage boys had an enormous, rager of a party while my partner and I were in the Bahamas for our 25th anniversary. I’m not sure what they did to the kitchen sink and the basement bathroom, but yuck is not a strong enough word for what was going on in my historic, family home which has been passed down for generations. Safe to say, I was more than furious. My husband’s best friend has been working at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing Service for years. Our plumber friend brought a team right away and gratefully the damage to my home was not permanent. We never call any other plumbers because we know the value of Benjamin Franklin’s team and their transparency when it comes to pricing and job timelines.”
“We have a child that is differently-abled and has a difficult time understanding certain things about household items. We were having a small dinner party with a few other couples and their kids and I guess one of the other kids dared my child to pour the candle wax into the sink so they could all make wax figurines. The next day we called a few companies that would not be able to get to our repair between three days to a week. It was not until I found Benjamin Franklin Plumbing that I got an emergency call out and the problem was fixed that day. If you have a plumbing problem call Benjamin Franklin. They are the best in SC!!!”
