 Get ready for Back to School Seattle!!  Here are the school calendar dates you should know about! 

It seems like it is ALWAYS Raining around here!

You chose to live in the Seattle area for all of its inherent beauty, but you also have that little matter of 38 inches of rainfall every year.  The simple math tells us that is 3 inches a month.  Then there’s the snowfall.  With that comes the necessity of having a quality sump pump in your home to keep your head above water.

Installing a sump pump is not exactly an easy do-it-yourself job - in fact, it is considered “heavy construction” by many in the building trade.  There is the digging of the hole, the removal of the dirt, perhaps punching a hole through the exterior basement wall for the drainpipe, and more.  That is definitely NOT a DIY job!

You know whose job it is right?  If you have lived in Snohomish for any length of time you may know the name Shawn Allen.  Over the last 35+ years he has been your Seattle area sump pump installer and repair pro.  If you don’t know Shawn and your sump pump is on your mind visit his website at  Then call him at (425) 367-4744.

Bringing Your Household to a Screeching Halt!

This time of year, before school is back in session your home and living area have probably had quite a workout.  People are coming in and out, toilets are flushing more often, etc.  One thing that will paralyze the flow of your daily routine is a backed-up sewer.  The truth is, it may be getting slowly worse with the passage of summer.

Back in the old days someone had to put on their gear and get into the system to check it out.  Fortunately, today there is something called video inspection.  What happens in this case is that a video camera takes the brunt of the sewage and reveals exactly what is the root of the problem.  It could be a root itself or even cracked pipes.

No question about it, having your sewer system inspected is essential to your family’s comfort.  Whenever that happens in the Seattle area you immediately call Shawn Allen.  He is Snohomish Washington’s sewer video inspection professional and has been since the technology has existed.  Call Shawn right away at (425) 367-4744.
