Local & Residential Professional Plumbing Service
When you have a plumbing problem, you depend on the professionals to handle it well, so it’s properly taken care of. But you don’t want to drain your savings, either. That’s when you should call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. Each of our locations hires plumbers who are invested in helping their customers find the best solutions at affordable prices.
Our customers love us – realizing that we’re true experts in the industry who care. They join our Ben Franklin Society™ for annual safety inspections, leak checks, and water heater tune-ups for extra security because they trust that we’ll catch minor issues before they become big problems.
Plumbing emergencies don’t always happen during the typical business hours, which is why our team is on standby 24/7. If a pipe bursts or your toilet overflows in the middle of the night, don’t hesitate to give us a call at (800) 259-7705 and we will arrive as quickly as possible to help you return your home to safe living conditions.
Don’t let just anyone attempt repairs on one of the most crucial components of your home or business – trust reliable experts with the experience and specialized training to get the job done right and safely. Our plumbers are fully licensed and insured to conduct any plumbing repairs without you being liable.
With a thorough assessment process, our plumbers will determine the root cause of the problem before identifying your possible solutions. It’s critical to provide a proper diagnosis to ensure the issue is corrected in its entirety so that similar problems don’t emerge.
Whether you’re adding a new component to your plumbing system or replacing something that’s reached the end of its lifespan, we’ll install it “professionally giving you peace of mind.” From the smallest shower head installation to the largest sewer lining project, you’re in good hands with Ben Franklin Plumbing, The Punctual Plumber®.
Even the tiniest leak can’t go without attention. That irksome faucet dripping may be a sign of an underlying problem that’s not only wasting water and money but also potentially causing significant property damage you can’t see.
When you’ve discovered a leak or suspect a potential problem, save yourself wasted water that’s running up your monthly bill and avoid water damage to your property by having Benjamin Franklin Plumbing repair the leak quickly.
Leaks underneath your home’s foundation can’t be seen, but they can be detected and stopped. Ignoring a potential slab leak can cause your foundation to crack, so it’s best to call for an inspection the moment you suspect a problem.
Take back your pool days by stopping leaks in their tracks. If your water level is dropping faster than it could be evaporating, or your automatic filler system runs consistently, you likely have a leak that we can take care of.
*Check with your local franchise, services may vary by location.
Beyond being a nuisance when they don’t work, drains can become a health hazard that causes waste to back up or creates a dark, moist environment for mold to thrive. Keep a step ahead of your drains with services including:
- Camera Inspections
Luckily, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing professionals can provide comprehensive drain services from the smallest clog to the largest blockage.
It’s not uncommon for drains to clog throughout regular everyday use. Since they travel far and wide underneath our homes, drains can encounter problems at numerous points throughout the plumbing system. Causes of drain clogs located far from the opening include:
- Root Growth
- Ground Settling
- Pipe Collapses
- Misaligned Pipes
Regularly maintaining your drains with professional grade equipment or scheduled service visits helps avoid massive problems in the long run. All our locations offer BioBen, an exclusive product that uses natural microorganisms to clean drains safely and inexpensively.
When drains don’t require specialized equipment, we often recommend BioBen to eat away clogs in minutes. But if your drain needs a bit more elbow grease to fully clear, our plumbers are trained extensively in Rooter Service, also called “snaking,” or Hydro Jetting for blasting severe clogs with the power of water force.
Whether you’re remodeling or building a new home, we deliver top-of-the-line drain installation. If you’re not starting from scratch but believe your drains need replacement, we’re happy to provide the solution you’re looking for.
There are several types of pumps in home plumbing systems, all with very important roles. Whether your pump is powering your irrigation system, pumping water from a well into your home, or routing water out of your home during a flood, you need professionals who understand the intricacies of each to deliver effective installation, repairs, and maintenance.
As the core component to providing your home with clean drinking water, your well pump must always work seamlessly. If you’re noticing dirty faucet water, air spurts, or loud noises while running water, give our team a call.
Whether you need repairs or maintenance for your submersible or pedestal pump, you’d like to install a battery backup system, or you’re considering installing a sump pump for the first time, we can help. Keep your home protected from flood water with this important line of defense.
With routine maintenance, water heaters last far longer in your home by preventing unexpected breakdowns and ensuring the warranty is still in place. The anode rod is the most important component – be sure to have yours checked every two years and replaced before it gets corroded and forms rust on your heater that leads to a leak. The only thing on a water heater that can’t be repaired is a leak; if this happens, you’ll need a replacement unit much earlier than originally necessary.
While running out of hot water is a sign that repair may be necessary, it’s not the only one. Indicators of a broken water heater include:
- Knocking sounds
- Unexpected shutdowns
- Constantly running unit
- Gas leaks
- Standing water in the unit
A new water heater installation is an investment that keeps your home running smoothly for years to come. Our team can help you decide which is best for you, whether it’s a conventional tank, solar power, or tankless water heater.
For an energy-efficient system that provides instant hot water and takes up much less space than a conventional system (being the size of a briefcase), have a tankless water heater installed.
Did you know that the first garbage disposal was used in a commercial kitchen back in the 1930s? Now, they’re a convenience that many households have and use regularly. Chewing through thousands of pounds of food waste before issues occur, it’s likely you haven’t had to think much about your garbage disposal after having it installed. Pro tip: If your disposal is stinky, run some ice cubes and citrus peels through it for a fresh scent!
As with any machine, after years of use, something may go wrong and require repair. When that happens, you can count on our plumbers to safely fix your garbage disposal for use like new again.
Are you eager to have the convenience of a garbage disposal in your kitchen? We’ll safely install it for you and back our services with guarantees that have you covered if issues arise.
Is your faucet not performing to its usual standard? Have you been putting up with an improper installation that led to your hot water coming from the cold tap and vice versa?
Our plumbers are licensed and certified to conduct any installation, repair, or maintenance for:
- Kitchen & Bathroom Sinks
- Laundry Rooms
- Outdoor Hose Attachments
- Wet Bars
- Water Shut-Off Valves
If you have a steady drip coming out of your faucet, it’s causing more than a headache. Dripping faucets waste more than 3,000 gallons of water a year. That’s not only driving up your monthly bill, it’s wasting enough water to take almost 200 showers – our plumbers can quickly conduct repairs that put a stop to your problem.
An upgraded faucet transforms the look of the room it’s in – when you’re ready to get rid of your dull, residue-laden faucet, give our team a call for a fresh new look.
Showers are a relaxing convenience to have in the home. Whether you’re looking to update your shower, add a shower to a bathroom with only a tub, or turn to an environmentally sustainable shower head, we’re at your service.
Not only can leaky showers cause damage to the surrounding drywall and wood, but if water gets underneath a shower tray, it creates the perfect environment for potentially toxic mold growth. A simple repair by the experts can prevent these risks.
Not only can Benjamin Franklin Plumbing help by upgrading you to energy-efficient aerating showerheads, we’ll install your brand new shower and triple-check to ensure everything is perfectly in order.
Taking care of your tub means no smells, no clogs, and no water damage lurking unseen. Whether you have children to bathe or enjoy a long soak at the end of a stressful day, relax peacefully knowing your bathtub has routine maintenance services keeping it working properly.
If your bathtub is draining too slowly, has a leak somewhere, or you’re seeing mold spots growing on your grout, call our plumbers to inspect for safety hazards and conduct careful repairs.
Our team is incredibly knowledgeable in handling a variety of bathtub installations, including:
- Whirlpool Tubs
- Standard Tubs
- Hot Tubs
- Walk-In Tubs
Not something people particularly love talking about, yet something we all use, is the toilet. Whether you have a minor problem or a major overflow issue, let our plumbers handle it promptly on your behalf. If your toilet is older or not catering to your needs as well as it should, we’ll conduct repairs and can provide recommendations for replacement service upgrades such as:
- Elongated Bowls
- Comfort Height
Are you finding that your toilet continues to run water repeatedly after flushing? A common problem that drives water bills up and wastes unnecessary water, our experts can diagnose the source and quickly get your toilet back in working order.
If you’re in the market for a new toilet, our plumbers can talk you through the options available and what may be best suited for your home. There are a lot more types of toilets out there than you might even know of, including:
- And More
Sinks, much like any other device in our homes, require the proper functionality of all components to work as they should. Any part of the sink may at some point need repair or replacement, which is when you should call our plumbing experts. We’ll take a thorough assessment of the entire sink and determine which parts have malfunctioned and what your most cost-effective solution will be.
You can expect that a sink will last for years and years when properly taken care of, with most issues that arise being repairable. Our team is licensed to repair any style of sink, from porcelain to glass, ceramic, and anything in between.
If you’re remodeling and in need of a new sink, rely on the expertise of our plumbers to install a sink that will best fit based on:
- The depth of your current sink or space for the new installation
- What type of pipe your new sink will use
- Proper sealing methods and fixture selection
Sewer lines are complex, and if problems aren’t handled properly, they can quickly become an emergency. When you call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we’ll take all the steps possible to avoid sewer line replacement during an inspection, starting with a camera inspection to find the source of the issue.
Many times, sewer lines can be repaired without needing to dig up your lawn. Invasive diagnostics are far more costly than camera inspections, which is why we prefer to start there. If we discover a garden-variety clog or accumulated crystallization of soap and grease, we’ll get to work on repairs. If the problem is something more catastrophic, like a break in the sewer line, we’ll walk you through every option you have.
Are you suspecting your sewer line is broken? Some common indicators to watch for include:
- Pooling water on your lawn
- Slowly draining bathtubs and sinks
- A foul odor emitting from your drains
- Sewage is backing up in sinks, toilets, and bathtubs
- You hear gurgling noises within the drains
Rather than having your landscaping torn up and turned into a mud patch, we’ll conduct trenchless sewer repairs. Not only do they take less than a day to conduct, but they also save you money while achieving the same results as traditional sewer repairs.
Prevent major headaches and expensive repair bills by ensuring your piping is properly installed and maintained by professionals. Whether you need services for gas piping or water lines, our experienced team can ensure things are running smoothly to maintain the comfort of your home.
If you’re unsure whether your pipe needs to be repaired or replaced, give our team a call to inspect every detail before making a recommendation on how to best rectify the situation.
It’s not uncommon for the water in your pipes to freeze and expand during the coldest days – and frozen pipes can quickly burst. Contact our plumbers as soon as you notice a frozen pipe to avoid costly damages.
If a leak has sprung out of control, whether from having been undetected for too long or impacting old plumbing systems, you can count on our team for a safe replacement and installation of new pipes.
Treated water traveling from the city to your home flows into your water main, then pumps from your water main (typically at the edge of your property) through a water line that splits into two pipe paths – hot and cold service lines – that connect with your water heater. These water lines are responsible for moving water through to every faucet or valve on the property. As you can imagine, this makes properly functioning water lines incredibly important for daily life.
One of the clearest indications that your water line needs replacement is flooding – this tells our team that it’s highly likely one of your lines has burst. If you’re unsure, give our plumbers a call to have an inspection. We’ll help you understand where the problem is stemming from and what can be done.
Whether your water line is damaged from freezing and thawing pipes, old age, or some other unseen problem, our plumbers will use specialized equipment to locate your water lines. From there they’ll determine the source of the issue before presenting your solution options and conducting efficient repairs.
Water treatment processes add an extra layer of protection to the water in your home – making it cleaner and taste better. By removing minerals or contaminants, it’s healthier for drinking, cooking, and bathing. Not to mention, softer water is not as harsh on your plumbing systems, which provides longevity to your pipes and faucets.
Hard water contains more minerals than soft water, and these minerals build up over time, reducing the lifespan of water-based systems and appliances you use every day. Water softeners improve your water quality for a smoother lather and preserve the integrity of your appliances.
Public or city water often uses chlorine for purification, which affects the taste and makes your skin dry out more quickly. Along with balancing the taste of your water, purification systems remove mineral buildup and sediment particles that gather within your pipes and on your faucets and drains.
Whether you need to have a gas line installed for a new appliance, are looking to plumb a new kitchen, or need an inspection to ensure the safety of your home, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is ready to be of service.
As convenient as gas lines are, any work done with them needs to be handled carefully as they can become extremely dangerous. If your gas line is hissing, corroded, damaged, or producing a strange smell, call right away for professional assistance.
Not all damages to gas lines require a full replacement. In some cases, a repair may be a lasting solution to your problem. Call our team to inspect the issue and provide you with the safest solution.
If you have a boiler as the primary heat source for your home, making smart decisions about the maintenance of it affects your utility bills and comfort. Whether you have a steam boiler or a hot water boiler, let our professionals handle any services to provide you peace of mind.
Whether you’re looking to upgrade your boiler to one that’s energy-efficient, or are wondering whether your current unit is draining your wallet faster than necessary, we’ll help you understand what type of boiler is best for your home.
As with many home systems, there are many components of a boiler that may require repair at some point in time. From the heat exchanger to the pressure valve and everything in between, we have the experience to provide effective repairs.
