Most houses need and have a sump pump in their homes. The reason is so water doesn’t get into your home. Low spots in homes tend to have annoying standing water siting their. Sometimes in the laundry room and sometimes in a nice carpeted family area which either way can get really old, quick.

Simply put what does a sump pump do? What is their main function?

Sump pumps remove water from underneath your house before it raises up and gets into your home. Which means if the pump motor doesn’t work during a major flooding storm you could end up flooding your house.

Every spring test your sump pump system or hire a company to come out and help. It’s better to pay a service call then to re-do your entire basement due to flooding.

Commercial Restaurant Floor Drain

Commercial floor drains tend to back up often with all the grease and sludge.


Restaurants tend to have several drains cleaned out on a monthly or b-monthly basis. Toilet and urinals lies also tend to get plugged up.

If you own or manage a commercial property be sure to keep up on your drain cleaning. Drains that you have cleaned out at night or on the weekend will cost you more so plan smart. Emergency service is when plumbing companies make lots of money. We call it “Emergency Dollars”. Have your drain pipes cleaned on maintenance and don’t wait for a clogged drain.
