Is the water in your sink taking longer to empty? Or Is the water starting to lap over your feet and ankles when you shower? These are signs that your drain lines are clogged. It may not even be the shower drain that is clogged!
Clogs are formed when warm grease (and other materials like flour and coffee grinds) cool and stick to the inside of the drain line. The grease sticks to the other materials, and the clog grows. As it hardens over time the clog will begin to restrict the flow of water through the pipe network.
Unless you act, the clog will continue to grow and completely block the line. You will then have standing water in your sinks, tubs, dishwashers, and even the washing machine.
The safest way to remove these clogs is to have a professional drain cleaning service. Pouring store-bought chemicals and throwing them down the sink may remove a small clog, but it won’t do anything to remove an established blockage.
In fact, overuse of store-bought chemicals will corrode the pipe system and eventually cause a leak. The best way to avoid clogs is to stop pouring grease and food down the sink and place them in the compost.
Do a little research about what is damaging to pour down any plumbing utility. Just because a product says that it is flushable or safe to pour down the sink does not make it true. In most cases, it is just a marketing ploy.
Most clogs in your bathroom are the result of hair, soap, and toothpaste sticking to the plumbing network. We suggest that you buy hair traps to catch these items before they reach any of the drain lines.

Water Line Repairs and Installation
If you live in an older home, you may still have the original piping network. It could be starting to show signs of wear and tear, needing more patching up of leaks. Older pipes may rust from the inside and be causing any metallic taste or discoloration in your water. It may be time to consider having your plumbing replaced. Yes, the initial investment will be considerable but continual plumbing service repairs will cost a lot more over time.
You can replace the older pipes with new PVC ones, leading to better drainage and water flow. No more contaminants can enter your drinking water and your body. This is a plumbing service we at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing serving Rhome, TX are experts in.
Your water line could travel a good distance from the main water supply to your home. A leak that occurs outside your home can lead to a great deal of trouble. A leak under your garden could create sinkholes and wash away the topsoil.
If a slab leak occurs under or inside the concrete foundation of your home, then you have a genuinely serious problem to deal with. A slab leak undermines the structural integrity of your home. If you notice the following symptoms you need to call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing serving Rhome, TX straight away.
The lawn is green and lush – if this occurs during a dry spell, you have a water line leak.
Water pooling around the perimeter of your home – this is a sign of a slab leak.
Cracks on your concrete floor – Over the year the wet soil under your home caused by the leak will alternately freeze and thaw, expanding than contracting. This pressure will cause cracks to appear in the foundation. Water can then enter the cracks, again alternately expanding and contracting, increasing the size of the cracks.
Your concrete floor is warm to the touch – if a hot water line is leaking this will warm the concrete floor. As much as we want underfloor heating, this is not the way to go about it.
Any leak will increase your water bill. If you suspect that you have a leak, then we suggest that you turn off all your water appliances and make sure that all the taps are turning off.
Then check your water meter and see if it is recording any water usage. If it is then you have a leak somewhere on your property.
Sewer Line Repair and Installation
What’s worse than having your water line leak, is having your sewer line leak. Remember those clogs we talked about earlier and how we advised you not to pour grease and food down your sink because they are the main causes of clogs forming?
Well, guess what? if the drain line gets clogged, then they can block your sewer line.
If your sewer line is blocked or damaged, any wastewater from your home will not be able to enter the main sewer network. It will back up into your home, and you will see discolored water gurgling back into your sinks and toilets, often accompanied by the smell of sewage and eventually spillage of sewage and bacteria.
Stop flushing the toilet at this point, as you are only going to cause it to overflow. Once a technician from Benjamin Franklin Plumbing arrives, they will use cutting-edge ‘Pipe Cams.’ These cameras use infrared light and allow them to see in the dark which locates the problem and determines the size of any blockage and gives the plumber a better idea of the damage that has been caused.
Identifying these issues is the best course of action to take because it informs the plumber of what options are best to remedy the problems. A blockage can be cleared with a blast of high-pressure water, but if the sewer line is damaged, it may have to be repaired or replaced.
A water heater is usually a very robust piece of equipment but will break down sooner or later and need a replacement or a repair. Benjamin Franklin vans carry spare parts for most brands of water heaters, so we hope to quickly fix the problem during the first (and only) visit to your home.
If your water heater is over ten years old and starting to need more repairs frequently, it may be time to consider buying a new water heater. We stock the most advanced conventional and tankless water heaters and can help you select the one that best suits your needs and budget.
Selecting the right size water heater is the most important consideration when buying a new water heater. If you pick an underpowered unit, you risk endless frustration as your water heater will be unable to deliver all the hot water necessary. If that happens too many times it may break down altogether and need an expensive repair that could be outrageously expensive.
Let one of our experienced technicians help you with selecting the right-size water heater with the capabilities best suited for your family. A new water heater is not going to be inexpensive to buy or install, but it will pay for itself over the years by having lower running costs (using less gas or electricity) than a malfunctioning heater.
If you were asked if you like drinking pool water, you would say no. But this is what many of us do because water companies put Chlorine in the drinking water, this is to kill nasty bacteria that are harmful to our well-being, but drinking chlorinated is not the solution.
Studies have shown that exposure to Chlorine can lead to asthmatic symptoms. Chlorine can also cause congenital abnormalities, as well as bladder and rectal cancer. These are rare but they do happen. The most common complaint about Chlorine in your drinking water has an unpleasant taste and smell.
To avoid these problems many of us drink bottled water, but this too can have its problems. Most bottled water is high in acidity, causing heartburn in many people. The use of plastics is bad for the environment in so many ways. There is literally an island of plastic in the Pacific Ocean!
We at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing suggest that the people of Rhome, TX invest in a HALO water filtration system. This reduces the levels of Chlorine and many other contaminants in drinking water. Not only will you be drinking better tasting and safer tap water, but you are also saving money and helping heal the environment by reducing the need for bottled water.
If you live in a low-lying area or near a large body of water, you will most likely have a sump pump installed in your basement. But when was the last time you evaluated it?
The last thing you want when there is a heavy rainstorm heading towards Rhome, TX is to discover that the sump pump does not work. Flash floods in Texas can ruin basements and cause extensive damage. Let us perform this affordable plumbing service inspection before disaster strikes.
We at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing suggest that you clean and assess the sump pump regularly. You can do this by pouring a bucket of water into the pit to see whether the sump pump works as advertised. The pump should automatically start to empty the water and displace it far from your home.
If the sump pump fails to work, please call us for another high-quality plumbing service that we provide. Do not wait until the weather causes major problems in your home.
Your garbage disposal is an essential part of your kitchen’s waste management system. It makes your life easier when preparing food and reduces the food waste that ends up in landfills. It also reduces the amount of food that goes down the sink, so lessening the risk of clog formations.
The repair of garbage disposal is a plumbing service that Benjamin Franklin excels at, but eventually, you will need a replacement, which will be more energy efficient because the technology has significantly advanced
