We Offer Thorough Sewer Lateral Inspections In Philadelphia And Nearby

A sewer lateral is an underground pipe connection. The pipe connects a residence or business to the main sewer line in your area. Often, local city governments consider either part or all of the line to be the property, and therefore the responsibility, of the business or homeowner. The private-owned underground section of the lateral is often taken for granted until a problem arises, like raw sewage backing up your pipes that need sewer lateral inspections and drain cleaning services.

Any number of things can block your sewer systems, such as tissues, foreign objects, diapers, and cat litter. What's more, oil and grease and poor installation can all result in the pipes clogging up. Ben Manis Plumbing uses specialized cameras for sewer inspections to quickly determine the problem and fix it in compliance with local regulations while keeping the cost reasonable. If you want to avoid future complications, reach out to our plumbing contractors for sewer lateral inspections and cleaning services.

Let Us Use Our Camera For A Thorough Sewer Lateral Inspection On Your Sewer Line

After repeated attempts by amateurs to fix an issue with my washing machine, they came out and removed the old hook up connection and replaced it with a new, less complicated outlet box. Once completed the washer still was not working; they took the time to diagnose the issue and were able to resolve the problem. Very pleased and will hire again.
Excellent customer service! Exceptional and friendly service and great price! Was quite a bit later than the appointment time of 10 AM but I did tell them any time was fine [i was in no rush]. They did call me a number of times to inform me as to when they would be here. David came, introduced himself [very nice]. Had to replace some parts inside the toilet which I already had and reset the toilet [as the bolts anchoring the toilet to the floor rusted out [toilet wobbling]. Replaced wax ring and bolts! Toilet now good as new! Will definitely use Ben Manis Plumbing in the future !
As a Realtor I sold a house to a young couple, where the seller was supposed to remedy the water pressure. After settlement, the water pressure was still low so I sent Ben Manis over. Ben found that the water meter was missing! The home inspector and seller's plumber both missed it. Needless to say, the water authority was there within 20 minutes to install a meter. If it weren't for Ben, the buyers could have been sold a $1500 water pressure system and would have possibly faced fines and back bills when the water department finally caught up. Honesty, integrity and attention to detail are hard to find. No one is perfect but Manis Plumbing is the best there is.
Called Sunday person that answered the phone was very professional. I told her the problem and explained it wasn't an emergency. They called me Monday morning and within an hour or two the problem as handled for a very reasonable cost. Really great workers very friendly and courteous. Very good company I'm glad I hired them
The plumber was very friendly and knowledgeable. I had a stopped kitchen sink which has a garbage disposal on it. He explained in details about my concerns about how garbage disposals work, and also explained what should and should not go in them. He accessed the problem and within a few minutes he had unclogged my drain. And, he cleaned my sink out which he didn't have to. I am very happy with Ben Manis Plumbing service as well as the plumbing technician, Eric Mendez.
Christopher of Ben Manis appeared on time, was extremely polite and efficient, explained what needed to be done and then proceeded to complete the repair. He cleaned up afterwards and left the area in excellent condition. I would highly recommend this company, and particularly, Christopher most heartily.
