Burst and Leaking Pipes
A burst or leaking pipe can happen at any time, usually at the worst possible time and it means you need a good plumber quickly.
Before you call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing you will need to turn off your water supply to prevent further water damage to your home. Prompt action could save you thousands of dollars in water damage repairs. If you do not know where to turn off your water supply, now is a good time to find out.

Has your sink been taking longer and longer to drain lately? You may have a clog building up in your pipes. It is easy to forget that we should not pour things like warm grease down the sink. When it cools it will stick to the inside of your pipes, together with other things like hair, and food. The buildup of these materials means less water will be able to flow through the pipes and eventually a blockage will occur.
You should not pour too many harsh chemicals down the drain to clear the clog. The clog may not be anywhere near the drain so any chemical use will have little effect. Continued use of harsh chemicals could corrode older pipework and joints over time, eventually causing leaks. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing offers a professional drain cleaning service to remove clogs.
A good plumber will tell you not to flush anything down a toilet other than human waste, toilet paper, and some gentle toilet cleaners. Certain products are not designed to dissolve easily in water, such as wet wipes, sanitary products, and tissue paper. The tissue paper may come as a surprise to you but unlike toilet paper, it is not designed to quickly dissolve in water. All these items can build up over time if not flushed away properly and block your toilet.
A good plumber will also tell you not to keep re-flushing a blocked toilet, you do not want it to overflow when your toilet is blocked – then please call us immediately.
Sewer Lines Repair and Replacement
All those materials such as warm grease poured down your sink and toilet could also block your sewer line. If all your sinks and toilets are not draining away, you may have a blocked sewer line. If brown-colored water is gurgling back into your sink and smells of sewage you need an emergency plumber now.
Hazardous bacteria and germs could be entering your home creating a serious health problem. This is a job for one of our professional plumbing teams. They will use a video camera on the end of a flexible tube to first locate the blockage, and then inspect the surrounding area for damage. Depending on the problem they could either remove the blockage or in the case of a damaged sewer line, reline the inside of the pipework with a special plastic or even replace it. Whatever needs doing you can rest assured that Benjamin Franklin Plumbing will be able to assist you.
Have you noticed your water bill going up a lot recently? Have you experienced lower water pressure? Is there a pooling of water around the outside of your house? Is your lawn damp and green even if it has not rained for some time? If you have spotted any of these signs you could have a slab leak and you best call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.
Most homes are built on concrete slabs, as the house settles over time it can damage any water or sewer pipe under or in the slab. Older pipes could also be damaged due to long-term corrosion.
Once whole concrete floors and gardens had to be dug up to find the source of the leak. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing uses state-of-the-art equipment to locate the source of any leak. Depending on the leak’s location, the extent of the damage, and the age of the pipes it may be possible to reline the existing pipe. One of our friendly technicians will point out the options available to you.
