Pipes And Sewers

When it comes to your main sewer lines and water lines, your peace of mind depends on them working properly. Sewer lines allow waste products to exit your home, while water lines deliver water to your home. Your property's plumbing setup is full of fixtures, fittings and appliances, all of which can cause potential problems, some serious. Sewer backups, clogged lines, damaged pipes and issues with leaks, high water pressure and low water pressure all demand the attention of true professionals. At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing we provide effective solutions for plumbing emergencies and minor headaches alike.

Water Pipes
Today's water pipes are made from a variety of materials, including PVC, iron, polyethylene and copper. They deliver water from the street or well to all areas of your home for use in the kitchen, bath, laundry, and outside irrigation. These pipes are often buried in the slabs of homes and consist of joints, valves and fittings that can deteriorate and lead to leaks. Water lines are pressurized and more susceptible to leaks. In some cases, it can be difficult to detect leaks without a closer inspection. Leaks can lead to low water pressure, water damage, increased bills and a waste of natural resources. And, in colder areas of the country, frozen pipes can be a major concern.

Sewer Pipes
Most sewer pipes are generally made of plastic materials such as PVC and polyethylene. They provide for the exiting of wastewater materials from kitchens, baths and laundries to a sanitary sewer or septic tank system. The majority of residential sewer systems have pipes that rely on gravity, where slight inclines in the piping allow for the flow of sewage to a further distribution point. These pipes consist of joints and fittings that can become damaged over time and leak. Sewer leaks can lead to unsightly odors, major messes, and unsanitary conditions.

Maintenance and Repair
At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we perform a variety of preventative and restorative measures for both your water and sewer pipes, including whole house re-piping.
