“If you have a low flow toilet in a bathroom without a tub or shower that is used regularly it is a good idea to run a bucket or two down the toilet too. This will prevent a build up of waste in the sewer drains.
You should also avoid using chemical drain cleaners whenever possible. It’s always better to clear a clog mechanically than to use harsh chemicals that may corrode metal pipes. If you feel the need to use a chemical drain cleaner look for a more natural versions that can clear a small clog without causing unnecessary damage.”
These are the mechanical devices responsible for groundwater removal in basements or lower levels. There are a number of components to the system. A sump basin or pit collects the groundwater. Float switches activate the sump pump when water levels in the sump basin reach what is called “the critical level’”. The sump pump will pump the accumulated water from the basement to the outside of the house.
Many times we have installed a back-up generator that is fortified with battery power.
YOU do not need to clean your sump pump, but your sump pump should be cleaned and tested as regular maintenance. How often you do it depends on how much use it gets: Every season if use is high and every 4-5 years if it is activated seldom or never.
We don’t recommend that you test or clean your own pump since running them without adequate water can easily burn out the motor. Our service will clean and maintain the pump, drains and check electrical connections and back-up systems.
