Pipes & Sewers
Properly working sewer and water lines are very important for having a stable and clean home. Your sewer lines guide waste products out of the home; while your water lines help supply your home with the water you use everyday. Your property could have an assortment of fixtures, fittings and different appliances that could cause a number of potentially hazardous problems. These problems include sewer backups, clogged lines; issues with leaks, damaged pipes, high water pressure and low water pressure, which are all serious problems which calls for assistance from true plumbing professionals. At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing we provide effective solutions for plumbing emergencies
Today, water pipes are made from a variety of materials, including iron, polyethylene, copper, and PVC. Water pipes help deliver water from the street or well to all areas of your home for kitchen, laundry, bath, and outside irrigation usages. These pipes are hidden beneath the slabs of homes and consist of valves, fittings, and joints that can lead to leaks. Water lines that are pressurized are more vulnerable to leaks. In most cases, it can be difficult to detect leaks without professional inspection. Leaks can lead to water damage, increased bills, and low water pressure, which is a waste of our natural resources. This is especially true for colder environments where frozen pipes are a major concern.
Your sewer pipes help remove wastewater materials from your baths, kitchens, and laundries to a sewer or septic tank system. Most of these pipes are constructed with plastic materials such as PVC and polyethylene. Sewer pipes are sensitive to gravity, meaning slight inclines will force the flow of the sewage to a further distribution point. These pipes consist of joints and fittings and can become damaged over time, leading to leaks. Sewer leakage creates bad odors, large messes, and serious unsanitary conditions.
