MAIN WATER VALVES & WATER SERVICES
The primary shut off device that regulates the flow of water to which all the branches connect. Referred to as the Main.
We will repair and replace the main water line from the meter into your home. Directional boring is also available to keep from tearing up your yard—one hole at the meter and another at the house is all that is needed, so there is no need to trench up your entire yard.
Sump pumps: Super-quiet, heavy-duty cast iron submersible sump pumps and competitive grade pedestal sump pumps are stocked on all trucks. Are you tired of hearing that “thump, thump” when your sump pump shuts off? All our pumps come with a silent check valve to reduce that sound.
Battery powered back-up sump pumps: We also install a battery back-up system that pumps 2400 GPH and runs on electricity when it is available and only kicks to the battery when you lose electrical power to the house.
Water powered back-up sump pumps: We install water powered pumps that require no electricity or battery and pump up to 1800 GPH—their only power source is the city water supply. Ben Franklin Plumbing has been installing these pumps since the early 80s, that’s over 25 years experience.
Sewer pumps: We install super-quiet, heavy-duty cast iron pumps and keep them stocked on every truck.
Pump alarm systems: We can install an alarm system to any pump that will sound off when your pump stops working.
So what does water damage do? It goes beyond the obvious. The obvious would be that leather items would shrink, wood would warp, and otherwise carpets may begin to smell or have to be properly dried. But it goes beyond that, which is why many hire professionals to take care of all of the fine details.
