It’s the worst feeling, to step down into basement of your home and feel the “squish” between your toes. If your basement is finished, it is a heart-sickening feeling. You might have gotten the sump pumps installation done but they still might fail for many reasons – from power outages to age and even lack of use. A good, hardy, professional-grade sump pump is a must and should be replaced (at a minimum) every three to five years to avoid the “squishy” experiences in your home. Eastside can replace and install these for you.
This is because it’s on its last leg. Sump Pumps don’t like to run dry. If it is running when there is no water in the sump pump pit, this is usually associated with a “switching” problem. Depending on your sump pump, the switch can either be repaired, adjusted, or replaced. The sump pump experts at Eastside Plumbing can evaluate the plumbing problem, install new sump pumps and make sure that your sump pump is working properly.
Let’s face it, how many times do we go into our basement and check our sump pumps? Sump pumps by nature, fail at the worst time. A flooded basement or crawlspace can cause thousands of dollars of damage. Big screen TVs can be replaced. Floating family heirlooms, not so easily. Which is why it is a good idea to get sump pump installation done timely. There are different types and styles of backups to choose from, such as battery backups, AC/DC backups, all-in-one sump pump systems and water-powered backups. Eastside Plumbing can help you determine what the right system is for your home. Give yourself that added security and peace of mind by protecting your eastside home and family possessions with a professionally installed backup sump pump system for less than you think.
Most basement bathrooms get a sewage ejector (aka “lift station) installation done. Basement bathrooms are lower than the house main sewer line. A sewage ejector installation is used to “lift” the basement bathroom water and waste up into the house main sewer line to flow out into city sewer system or septic tank. If you do not get sewage ejector installation done or if it is not working properly, the basement bathroom toilet, sink or shower will not drain properly, if at all. An inspection and repair thereafter, of the ejector by Eastside Plumbing will reveal the problem. It’s a yucky job, but somebody’s gotta do it!
Similar to a sump pump, sewage ejectors don’t like to run dry. If it is running when there is no water in the ejector pit, this is usually associated with a “switching” problem. Depending on your sewage ejector, the switch can either be repaired, adjusted or replaced. You can also go for re-installation in case it has broken down completely. The sewage ejector experts at Eastside Plumbing can evaluate the problem, extend the required repair services and make sure that your ejector is ejecting the way it should.
This is not a pleasant smell, we know, but easily remedied. It could either be that the pit has a vent problem or the sewage ejector pit seal has decayed or has been breached. All of which Eastside Plumbing can assess, repair, re-install if needed and provide the right services.
