Toilet Plumbing Services
Why does a toilet block? There can be several reasons, usually due to flushing the wrong items down the toilet.
A plumber from Benjamin Franklin will tell you not to flush anything down a toilet other than human waste and toilet paper. You can use some gentle toilet cleaners but very harsh cleaners can damage the seals and corrode pipework overtime.
A Benjamin Franklin professional can tell you many tales of a child’s toy being rescued having been flushed away. No amount of harsh chemicals will get rid of a plastic toy! People often flush wet wipes, sanitary products, and tissue paper down the toilet. These items are not intended to dissolve quickly in water. If not flushed away properly they can create a build-up of sludge and block your toilet. If your toilet is blocked please do not keep re-flushing it. You do not want the toilet to overflow and create a health hazard. If your toilet is blocked – then please call us immediately.
Sometimes after you have flushed the toilet you can still hear the water flowing. The water level in the toilet is being controlled by an adjustable float. If it is set too low the water will spill over into the toilet and the fill value will not shut off. You have a problem and need to act quickly or else you are going to have a larger than expected water bill. Whatever your problem, a plumber from Benjamin Franklin will sort it out quickly for you.
Leak Detection and Repair
Some leaks can be hard to detect and may have been running for a long time. The most usual sign is a larger than expected water bill. There could be signs of mold under carpets and on floors and walls. You could notice a musty smell from under your sink cabinet. The longer a leak runs the greater the damage caused.
As most homes are built on concrete slabs, there is a chance you could experience a slab leak. These leaks are caused as your home settles over time. Damage can occur to water or sewer pipes under or in the foundation of the house. In older homes, the pipes or seals could have corroded. It may be some time before you notice a problem, such as strange puddles of water around the outside of your house or an overly damp and green lawn when it has not rained. These slab leaks could be causing substantial structural damage and you can call a plumber from Benjamin Franklin right away. The longer you delay the greater the damage and the eventual repair bill.
If your sink has been taking longer and longer to drain, you may have a clog building up in your pipes. Materials like warm grease, hair, food, and coffee grinds will stick to the inside of your pipes. They will build up over time so that less water will be able to flow through the pipes and eventually a complete blockage will occur. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing offers a professional drain cleaning service to remove clogs.
