  • Do You Need A Sewer Ejection Pump In Your New Build?

    In most homes, sewage pipes are laid out such that the sewage travels downhill, through sewer pipes and into the public sewer. This happens automatically, thanks to the work of gravity. There are cases, however, in which you may need an extra appliance called a sewer ejection pump to propel the sewage down the sewer line and into the public system. Here are some reasons why you may need to include a sewage ejection pump in your building plans for a new home.

  • Welding And Septic Tank Contents: Why You Want To Be Careful

    Septic tank repair services help restore a broken, damaged, or failing septic tank to full use. In some instances, a septic tank may require welding of metals over the holes in the tank to patch it. The patch may give you another year or three before you have to replace the tank entirely. You may be tempted to weld the patches on the holes of the tank yourself, but you should either avoid doing so or be exceedingly careful.

    You may have taught your toddler not to stick loose objects into a toilet, but this doesn't mean that your youngster will necessarily abide by the rules, especially if he/she is curious and tends to be spontaneous in making choices when your back is turned. Educate yourself about what do you do if you attempt to flush your toilet and experience water backing up and onto the floor, just to realize that your child's small toy is the culprit.

  • Common Causes Of Drainfield Failure

    Many residential properties rely on septic systems to process waste. In the absence of a municipal sewer system, any refuse flushed down the drains in your home will make their way into a septic tank for treatment, and liquid waste will be funneled into a drainfield where it will be absorbed into the soil. A drainfield failure can result in catastrophic plumbing problems that will put the health of your family and the safety of your home at risk.

    Opening a home-based catering business is an exciting way to become your own boss. Even better, it can be a more economical way to do so. Working from home will offer you more time to be with your family, but it will also help you avoid paying the high overhead costs, such as rental fees and utilities for a separate commercial space, which can financially stress a new business venture. But along with the benefits of running a home-based catering business, there are also some potential problems that will need to be addressed and grease management is an important one of these.

    Keeping Our Plumbing On Point

    After dealing with a debilitating sewage flood a few years back, I decided to turn my attention to the proper care and maintenance of our septic tank. We had never spent much time trying to keep things in good shape, but we didn't want to deal with another sewage problem. To make things right, we met with the septic tank professionals and talked about how to keep our system in good shape. We worked hard to check for problems, and we called in the professionals at the first sign of trouble. Ever since then, we haven't had any issues. This blog is all about keeping your plumbing on point.
