At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Myrtle Beach, SC, our plumbing service team is here to make sure that your plumbing is in good shape and functioning well. We’re ready to respond to emergencies, find and fix leaks, clear clogged drains, and repair your water supply. If your hot water heater is having issues, we’re the ones to call, and we also help with sump pumps, water softeners, and sewer lines. When your home’s plumbing is running well, there’s another way our plumbing service can make a big difference, too: enhancing and upgrading your plumbing-related home features.
If your home has original equipment dishwasher and garbage disposal, you might want to get one of the new nearly-silent dishwashers, and a garbage disposal that has a bit more horsepower than what the builder supplied. While installing new appliances, our plumbing service makes sure that all the hoses, pipes, and other connections are in good shape, and the dishwasher’s connection to the garbage disposal includes an air gap protection device. What do you dream about in a sink? How about a nice stainless steel double sink with a modern voice-activated faucet, ready for hands-free use when you’re busy cooking. Maybe add a bar sink for parties and casual use while the cooking is underway? If you need any other water lines for an ice maker or cold water from the fridge, our plumbing service professionals can connect them correctly so you can enjoy them for years to come.
Bathroom Upgrades and Renewal
There is so much we can do to make your bathrooms right, from modern toilets with water-efficient flushing features and sinks with easy-to-operate faucets, touchless or with wide paddles so anyone can operate them. For a kids’ bathroom, you can have things installed at the right height for them, too. If you have issues with faucets left on, by the way, we recommend that you drop a few leak detectors in key places around the house, including the kids’ bathroom. Regular and guest bathrooms are great with upgraded shower or bath components, including showers that still save water, but provide a nice, broad spray for faster clean up when you’re trying to get somewhere.
Master Bathroom Luxury
Modern bathroom gear is just a start, the master bathroom can be cozy with a dual sink layout and modern controls, easy to operate when you’re trying to get organized in the morning. Showerheads with rain-style spray are relaxing and quick to rinse, but many homeowners are opting for full-body showers now that spray from the sides as well as the top. You can always turn off the sides to save water if you prefer. Our plumbing service group can help you evaluate the choices and what it would take to get them installed. For the toilet, a comfortable model with dual-flush to save water and a warm seat or bidet will give you a feeling of luxury even when you’re just taking a pause.
Hot Water Solutions
For larger homes, in-line water heaters located where they’re needed like the kitchen and master bedroom can help avoid long draws of water from the basement waiting for the hot water to hit the line. They also allow you to set the temperature you want for showers and kitchen work, often higher than the recommended temperature for the whole-house water heater that needs to take into account everyone that might wash their hands, making sure no one gets scalded. If you’re thinking about a new hot water heater sometime soon, we can upgrade you to additional tank space, a hybrid water heater model, or make the switch to tankless hot water for unlimited hot water, great for larger families. It’s important to maintain your water heater if it’s going to be serving you for years to come, and our plumbing service team can make sure that it’s kept in good working order with a minimum of tank corrosion and proper settings on the heaters. We’ll replace the anode rod when it’s time and check the tank condition so you’ll know when it’s time to think about another unit.
Water Softeners and Filters
Myrtle Beach, SC tap water is fairly soft, so a water softener is not a real necessity for most homeowners. It’s important to check your home’s specific needs, though, especially if you have well water, because hard water can degrade the pipes and appliances in your home. Having our plumbing service install a water filter system can still be a good way to improve your water quality to the point where you no longer have piles of plastic bottles to recycle, drinking glasses of high-quality water right from the tap or your refrigerator’s water and ice chiller.
Planning Your Plumbing Maintenance and Repairs
Our plumbing service can install a large variety of luxurious upgrades to make your home a place you can relax and enjoy yourself even more. Real estate professionals tell us kitchens and baths have a special influence when the home goes on the market, which helps persuade you to indulge. Our team is also an expert at making sure that your basic plumbing is up to standards and helps you plan for necessary repairs and replacements in a timely fashion. We know that life is a lot easier when you can put your decisions on a schedule, and with our extensive experience, we can help you know when it’s time to act and avoid emergency repairs and trouble.
