There are three main lines going in and out of your home: your water line, your gas line and your sewer line. While these crucial supply lines are built to last, they inevitably fail over time. For line leak repair and replacement, always use a licensed plumber that you can trust.
Ben Franklin Plumbing uses the latest technology and least invasive methods to replace your water, gas or sewer line. Our goal is to save you time, money and headache with these major procedures. How do you know if you need to repair or replace any of your home lines? We’ll explain.
Reasons for Main Water Line Replacement or Repair
Your main water line is the pipe that brings fresh water from the utility company into your home.
Water line repair and replacement are a common occurrence in Dallas area homes. No matter how much treatment is applied to the general water, the lines in your home face a continual build-up of rust and lime. This combination can lead to breaks or leaks that will eventually become significant issues. If left unaddressed, minerals such as excess zinc, rust, and other potentially harmful contaminants may mix in your drinking water and eventually have harmful effects on your overall health.
Signs that you may have a water line leak include:
- Puddles in or outside your home.
- Increased water bills.
- Hissing or bubbling sounds.
- Low water pressure.
- Discolored water.
If you suspect that you may have a water leak, don’t hesitate to call a professional. Water damage becomes a big problem fast and can lead to mold or other issues.
Gas Line Repair and Installation
Your gas line supplies the natural gas you use to heat your home, cook your food and dry your clothes.
Gas leaks are dangerous for your family, yourself, your pets, and your home. A continual gas build up may lead to health problems including possible suffocation, electrically ignited explosions, and fire.
Often, gas leaks produce very little odor and cannot be seen and consequently may not lead to immediate symptoms. Signs of gas leak include:
- Increased gas bill.
- Constant headaches or dizziness.
- Gas/ rotten egg smell.
- Hissing sound.
- Damaged trees or brown vegetation.
Gas leaks are serious. If you experience any of the above, call Ben Franklin. One of our expert technicians will check for leaks in and outside your home. If they find one, we’ll immediately repair or replace the affected line so that your family remains safe.
Sewer Line Repair and Replacement
Your sewer line is the main drain line from your home to the street. Everything you flush and everything that goes down your sink drains ends up in your sewer line.
Sewer line issues are often the result of tree roots growing into the pipes. Other causes are clogs and rust. Signs that you may have a broken or leaky sewer line include:
- Rotten sewer smell.
- Sinking areas in yard.
- Water damaged walls.
- Puddles of water.
In the past, a contractor would have to dig up your yard to replace a sewer line. These days there are alternative ways to repair pipes without excavation. Call us to discuss your options.
Camera Inspection Services for Your Line
To best serve our customers, Ben Franklin uses the latest tools and technology. One of the best ways to locate line leaks early on is via camera inspection.
By running a small high-definition camera through your empty line we can pinpoint where leaks and cracks occur. This allows us to make repairs quickly and precisely without having to replace large sections of your plumbing.
