A sewer leak is not a plumbing issue any homeowner wants to experience. A leaking sewer pipe poses multiple health risks for both your family and the community from sewer effluent. In addition, a leaking sewer pipe can cause costly structural damage to your home and its foundation. A sewer pipe leak is a plumbing emergency requiring immediate repair. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing can provide the repair required for your plumbing.
When you smell a sewer odor, it means there is a problem in the sewer, drainage, or ventilation system. The problem may be as simple as the evaporation of water in a seldom-used drain trap, or as serious as a leaking sewer pipe.

For anything else, you will require the services of a plumber to diagnose and repair the issue in your home’s plumbing and surrounding areas.
