When your drains don't work, we do!
Most of us think our sump pumps simply work, but most sump pumps aren't activated until there is enough water in the pump basin to signal it to switch on.
Checking your sump pump once in a while ensures it is fully operational. To check if your sump pump is working, dump some water into the basin that houses the sump pump until the ball of the pump is activated and pumps out the excess water. While it is pumping, also check that the pipe exiting the basin out into daylight is not obstructed from the outside. Sometimes tree leaves, dirt and debris get caught in the pipe and can cause it to clog. If the sump pump is not pumping water properly, it may need to be replaced. Replacing the sump pump can help ensure that your home is protected in heavy rains and inclement weather.
Keep your sump pump running in a power outage: Consider installing a battery back-up. The pump will operate during a blackout to prevent a flood or using a bucket to empty out your sump pump basin.
Some homeowners also have a second pump installed to adequately accommodate the size of the house or remove excess water twice as fast. Let us give you an estimate.
Leaks from pipes, plumbing fixtures and fittings are a significant source of water waste for water utilities and the residential customer.
Research has shown that the typical home loses 2,000 to 20,000 gallons (7.6 m3 to 76 m3) of water per year due to leaks. Some leaks are readily apparent, such as dripping faucets and leaking water heaters. Unfortunately, many leaks go undetected for years because the source of the leak is not visible. When leaks are hidden, the water escapes undetected, such as toilet flapper valves and cracked water supply lines.
Individually or collectively, the leaks in a single home can easily waste thousands of gallons of water each year; costing money to BOTH the water customer and the utility.
A hot water heater is a specialized device used for regulating hot or cold water within your home. It is either a tank-type, a tank-less or a solar device.
Different problems may be associated with different types of heaters. However, there are some common issues that you may experience, regardless of the type of tank you have.
Is your bath faucet running cold when you need to bathe or shower to relax? Hot water heaters have a peak performance period.
If yours is passed its prime, replacing it can save you a lot of headache in the long run. Older water heaters leak and can cause damage before the leak is detected.
