Floor Drain Cleaning
All homes have floor drains. The location of these drains varies, though, depending on your home style. Areas where floor drains are commonly found include basements, garages, patios, laundry rooms, and utility rooms. Floor drains have one purpose and that is to keep water out of your house. If your home has a basement, you’re more likely to find drains in that location to prevent sewer and rain water from backing up into your home. One of the most common problems our Wise Choice plumbers resolve is clogged floor drains. Don’t ignore backed up drains. Instead, call one of our licensed plumbers to clear the clog. In addition to our state-of-the-art drain cleaning service, our service techs go over maintenance suggestions helping you keep troublesome clogs from forming in the future.
Sump Pump Maintenance
Many basements also have sump pumps. These plumbing devices keep ground water out of the basement. Pumps divert water to wells, ponds, and storm drains. Homes with sump pumps that aren’t working are at risk of water damage after heavy rains. The moment you notice your sump pump isn’t working, call Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter. We send one of our trusted experts to your home to repair the pump right away. Need sump pump replacement? No problem! Our plumbers help you choose the right pump for your home.
Basement Plumbing Tips
Save money on plumbing repairs by taking steps to correctly maintain your sump pump and basement floor drain.
Here are a few pro tips to keep your basement plumbing working well:
- Fill the trap seal: Basement floor drains aren’t used frequently. Therefore, the trap seal may need to have water manually added. Trap seals with low water levels could allow sewer gases to back up into your home. This is a potentially hazardous situation. Keep your home and its occupants safe by pouring water down the drain once in a while.
- Test your sump pump: Make sure your pump is working before you need it. Fill a bucket with water and pour it into the pump. Does the pump turn on? Is the water diverted? If you suspect a problem, call Wise Choice Plumbing & Rooter right away. Don’t wait until it rains heavily and your basement is flooded.
