PIPES AND SEWERS


Your pipes and the sewer lines distribute and remove water from your home. Having a properly installed sewer line allows for the waste your family produces to exit your home easily. By maintaining your pipes and sewer line, this system will continue to provide you with your basic water needs. It is crucial to uphold a continual awareness of any sewer system complications that could potentially cause serious damage. Problems such as clogged drains, damaged pipes, sewer backups and other plumbing issues require experienced professionals.

Water Pipes

Water pipes are made out of a variety of materials, such as PVC, iron, polyethylene and copper. Their function is to distribute water from the street or well to every part of a house, whether that may be the bathroom, kitchen, laundry room or an outdoor irrigation structure. Some pipelines are buried in a house’s joints, so the valves and fittings in these cases are more susceptible to deteriorating, which causes leaks and subsequent water damage. It can be excessively difficult for any homeowner to discover without a thorough examination by a qualified plumber. Leaks can also lead to low water pressure, which can result in your utility bill spiking. If cold weather is a concern in your area, frozen pipes can become a major problem due to ruptures or breaks.

Sewer Pipes

Up to date sewer pipe systems are typically made from plastic materials such as PVC and polyethylene as opposed to metals. They are specifically used for transporting sewage from areas like kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms to a treatment or disposal center. Residential sewer systems rely on gravity to allow the flow of sewage to be redistributed where necessary. The joints and fittings that pipes are linked with have a tendency to wear faster and may become broken or leak over time. If sewer leaks occur, it can result in unpleasant odors, unsanitary conditions, and major sewer pipe problems.

Maintenance and Repair

Cleaning product companies sell chemical drain-clearing products, but they actually erode the pipes over time. If your pipes become backed up and your drain is clogged, we highly recommend giving us a call to snake the drain and look for the source of your water system’s issues. To prevent future occurrences of repeated stuffed-up drains, use a screen over your drains. Our professionals at Ben Franklin Levittown practice many restoration methods, which uphold the integrity of your plumbing system. We encourage you to contact us today for all of your plumbing needs.
