Franklin, known as the “Fluorescent Mineral Capital of the World,” is located over a rich ore body containing more than 150 minerals, many of them fluorescent and 25 of which are found nowhere else on earth. Settled in the 17th century, the village known as Franklin Furnace after Benjamin Franklin, developed near iron mines and iron smelting operations located along the Wallkill River. In the early 19th century, zinc deposits in the area began to be developed commercially. For most of the century many small companies mined zinc and iron in the Franklin area. In 1897 all zinc mining efforts merged into the New Jersey Zinc Company, which was a major controlling factor in the development of Franklin. Immigrants from Russia, Britain, Hungary and Poland joined the work force at the mine. The population, 500 in 1897, had swelled to 3,000 by 1913. On March 18, 1913, the Borough of Franklin was incorporated from portions of Hardyston Township, based on the results of a referendum held on April 23, 1913.
The most common reasons for backups are due to soap residue, garbage disposal waste, hair, and grease. While these are the most common cause for issues, they are also the easiest to correct and control.
The age of your drain lines can also be a factor when backups occur. For instance, if your line has many joints and/or connections, this could lead to pipe degradation and poor infiltration. The condition of your lines itself plays a vital role in the increased likelihood of backups and failure.
Settlement, due to improper bedding of the drain lines, can cause improper flow and buildup. It is necessary to avoid improper slopes, dips, sunken joints, root infiltration and breaks.
