Sewer Line Inspections

Sewer Line Inspections to Stop Emergencies, or Prevent Them

Sewers are the foundation of a home’s plumbing. When they don’t work, none of the plumbing works, and the results aren’t pretty. Actually, they’re downright disturbing and dangerous, as raw sewage that a functioning sewer takes away from your home gets stopped at the clog and builds up until it has nowhere to go but back where it came from: up through your drains.

When your house becomes a biological hazard, due to pathogens such as E.coli and salmonella that are found in raw sewage, you know you have a big problem. Fortunately for you, at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, located in West Chester, it’s our job to solve plumbing problems, big and small. We do this for homeowners all over Chester County and Delaware County, PA.Plumbing contractor performing a sewer line inspection using a camera

Sewer pipe repair solves the problems we find.

The whole point of a sewer line inspection is to find and diagnose problems. Sometimes, we find problems besides clogs, such as a disconnected or damaged pipe. Unlike clog clearing, which can be accomplished with a cable inserted down into the sewer from above, pipe repair or reconnection always requires digging down to the pipe to fix it. Though it’s just a small portion of ground that must be dug up, this is still a big undertaking, one that should be left to no one but professionals like us.

From toilet repair to water heating, we attend to all the plumbing needs of homeowners in the Chester County and Delaware County, PA areas. Whether it’s for routine maintenance or an emergency repair, contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing today for these and other services.
