Do you have visible water leaks in your floors or walls? High water bills? Hot, wet or discolored spots in your floor? Cracks in your walls? Musty odors? Dripping sounds that keep you up at night?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have a slab leak in your home. Slab leaks are caused by improper installation or corrosion by hot water. At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we specialize in a variety of slab repairs, as well as slab replacements. The cost of the repair depends on the size of the gap. Using advanced leak detection equipment, we will repair the gap without causing any property damage maintaining our commitment to respect our clients.
Call Ben Franklin Plumbing to diagnose your slab leak and repair it before major damage occurs. Ignoring the problem will only cause the damage to spread and can cause irreversible structural damage to the foundation of your home.
Most homes rely on gravity to discharge waste, but when that doesn’t provide enough force, an ejector pump is generally considered to be the best safeguard against backup. At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we specialize in ejector pump installations, maintenance and repairs.
If your basement is at risk of flooding, a sump pump is considered to be the best safeguard. Sump pumps can also be used to remove any dampness by lowering the water table under the foundation.
At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, our sump pump installation specialists will survey your home to determine your needs and perform the installation as efficiently as possible. Whether you have already suffered the misfortune of basement flooding or want to make sure you never do, we can help.
Water Filtration Systems
Depending on your current home filtration system and piping in your area, your water supply may contain excess minerals and harmful contaminants. Excess minerals yield harder water and contaminated water causes illnesses.
Water filtration systems are one of the most effective methods of purifying water. A water filtration system can remove impurities and harmful contaminants from your faucet, giving you the cleanest water possible for your home and family. The filtration system will also remove nitrates, chromium and mercury giving you a better tasting glass of water.
At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we specialize in the service and installation of water filtration systems for your home or office. Once our team of professionals has installed your new filtration system, you can immediately begin enjoying healthier and better tasting water.
Water Softening (subsection of water filtration systems)
Do you find soap scum in your sinks, bathroom and shower? Is the water in your pipes flowing slowly, as if something is blocking it? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, chances are the water in your home is too hard.
Hardness in water is the result of an excess of hard ions such as calcium, magnesium and iron. When soaps and detergents react with these elements, they can’t do their job properly, leaving clothes, skin and dishes dirty. These elements also contribute to thick calcium and magnesium deposits in pipes, which restricts the flow of water in your tap.
