Common Drain Issues in the Home

Clogged drain

As homeowners we tend to neglect our plumbing until there is a problem we can’t ignore. By that time, it usually ends up costing more than if it had been detected and repaired earlier by a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Houston.

Regular plumbing inspections that are provided during routine plumbing maintenance will catch the little problems early on, and prevent their becoming a larger and more costly problem later. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing’s experienced licensed plumbers provide superior service with the skills that only continuing education and experience can provide.

When you receive routine maintenance by a Benjamin Franklin plumber in Houston, the plumber will look for signs of problems like hidden leaks, underground leaks, gas leaks and a water heater in need of flushing, for example.

Early intervention can even prevent serious problems. An example is a slab leak that can undermine your homes foundation and lead to collapse of the slab.

A slight drip from a faucet may seem minor, but over time thousands of gallons of water is lost. With drought conditions worsening in many regions, and water becoming a more scarce resource, we all have a responsibility to conserve water.

You receive a lot for your money when you have Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg provide a complete plumbing inspection of your home.

Low Water Pressure

When a home’s plumbing system is experiencing low water pressure, hydrostatic testing may be used to isolate a leak. Testing pipes expose the problems that are preventing the system from operating at design pressures, including possible water leaks.

Sewer Line Blockages and Cleaning

Drains tend to clog up over time. Soap scum, hair, grease and food particles are common causes of drain clogs. When blockage occurs with drains or toilets in your home, it is possible for a back-up or overflow to occur inside and/or outside the home. Common causes of sewer line blockage are hardened grease, tree root intrusion, aging lines, or broken pipes.

Sewer back-up in homes create a risk to health such as contamination from mold and harmful bacteria or viruses.

Benjamin Franklin plumbers often utilize a video line inspection. Video line inspection uses a camera that projects a real time image onto a monitor and records it. It enables the plumber in Houston to accurately pinpoint and identify the cause of a clog. This information provides the plumber with the information needed to provide the best solution for the problem.

With the problem and location identified, cleaning is provided. Roots, scale and other blockages can be removed, restoring the pipe to its original interior diameter.

Prevention is the Best Policy

Potentially costly plumbing repairs can be prevented with routine annual plumbing maintenance. By catching issues early on, larger problems are prevented, saving you money, and preventing issues that could have potentially devastating effects on your home.
