The cost of remediation may be substantial, so it’s important to call an emergency plumbing specialist who can quickly identify the cause of the problem and make the necessary repairs. At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we pride ourselves on our skilled technicians, 24/7 emergency service, on-time guarantee and straightforward pricing.

Typical Plumbing Emergencies

No one likes to discover a plumbing emergency, but fortunately, homeowners can help minimize the damage while waiting for the plumber to arrive.

  • Blocked Toilets and Drains: Some superficial obstructions can be removed with a plunger, plumber’s snake or liquid drain cleaner. However, if none of the DIY methods work, a licensed plumber with commercial-grade equipment can clear the restriction quickly and inexpensively.
  • Leaking Pipe Emergency: A burst or leaking pipe can result in catastrophic flooding if not immediately addressed. The first thing you should do to stop the flow of water is locate the main valve and turn it off.
  • Leaking Fixtures: A leaking or clogged fixture can be annoying and destructive. Look for scum, hair, debris and other obstructions in the body of the appliance. If the connections or moving parts are leaking, turn off the water at the valve and call an emergency plumber.
  • Repiping: Some old plumbing systems contain galvanized pipe, which is subject to corrosion. Even fresh copper has a limited life of 20-25 years. Corrosive elements in your water can cause pitting, which eventually results in pinhole leaks. If your water is brown or rust colored, call one of our 24/7 emergency plumbers today.
