24 Hour Emergency Plumbing Service
Plumbing problems and emergencies are unpredictable and that is why you need to be able to call on the services of an experienced plumber around the clock. Whether you have a burst pipe or a broken-down water heater, we will always have somebody available to help you.
Hopefully, you will not have a burst pipe, but it is a good idea to find out where the main shutoff valve is. The sooner it is turned off the less damage will occur.
There is nothing worse than a blocked toilet. But we treat our toilets like trash cans and put anything down them and it should come as no surprise that they block periodically. We advise that only human waste, toilet paper, water, and some gentle cleaners should go down a toilet.
It may come as a shock to you that items like wet wipes and Kleenex tissues should not be put down a toilet. Unlike toilet paper, they are not designed to dissolve in water. If they are not flushed away properly then they can become the prime cause of a blockage.
If you have a blockage, we suggest that you stop flushing the toilet to clear it and call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Myrtle Beach straight away. Repeatedly flushing the toilet may cause an overflow with a nasty mess for somebody to clean up.
Like the toilet, we are guilty of putting a lot of things down a sink that we should not. Have you poured warm grease down a sink? Well, that is a no-no. Once the grease cools there is a good chance that it will stick to the insides of the pipes.
Other materials such as food and coffee grinds will stick to the grease and start to form a clog. If you allow the clog to grow it will restrict the flow of water through the pipes and may even cause the water to back up into your sink.
The use of chemicals to remove any clogs may work for a time, but those clogs that have been around for a long time may reform. Only a professional drain cleaning service from a Benjamin Franklin plumber will completely rid you of this problem.
Water Heater Services
The best thing that you can do for your water heater is to have it regularly serviced, this will ensure that your heater is in good working order and operating efficiently.
There are several types of water heaters. The most common type is a conventional tank water heater, consisting of a large, insulated tank with a capacity of between 20 to 100 gallons of hot water.
It is always kept heated and can be powered using electricity, natural gas, or other fuels. Another common type is the tankless water heater which does away with the need for a large external tank.
Cold water is heated by passing through a copper heat exchanger in the unit. These units are more energy-efficient than conventional water heaters because they only produce hot water on demand.
Another option that is up and coming is the increasingly popular Hybrid Heat pump water heater. These act a little like an AC unit and absorb the heat from the air to supply the energy to heat the hot water. They are another energy-efficient, green option.
All these heaters have advantages and disadvantages. For example, the Conventional Tank water heater is cheaper to buy and install but is more expensive to run as a large amount of water must be constantly heated.
Even the best-maintained water heaters will need replacing. If your heater is over ten years old, it may be time to replace it. It can be difficult to decide what type of water heater to replace it with.
If you have a growing family, you may need a unit with a larger capacity to cope with the extra demand in the future. Skilled plumbers from Benjamin Franklin’s can help you decide what water heater best suits your needs and budget. We have many years of expertise in servicing, repairing, and installing new water heaters.
