Lights, Camera, Action.

No, this is not a movie set…it is the action taken to find out what is going on with your sewage system.  Not quite as romantic is it?  What is a video sewer inspection?  To inspect the pipes and find possible problems, a special sewer video camera head connected to a flexible cable is inserted into the main sewer line cleanout, and snaked through the pipes.

While it is an important tool in a leak location test, a sewer camera by itself cannot be used to determine if you have a leak.  Since the camera is inside the pipe, it cannot see the outside of the pipe which simply means it can’t see if something is leaking OUT of the pipe. It can only show what is going on INSIDE the pipe.

For practical evidence of this we invite you to visit  Here, you can view a sewer cam video.  It isn’t pretty, but it should educate you on what may be needed under your Seattle area home.  If and when you need us, we are a phone call away.  Call Shawn at (425) 367-4744 before things get worse.

Oh Boy, It’s Sump Pump time.

Spring rains bring flooding conditions and you had better have the right sump pump in your castle.  Homes with basements and low water tables require sump pumps to discharge the water before it causes damage. Sump pumps remove excess water from any place that might collect water where you don't want it.

Pick a sump pump according to its base type. Sump pumps are available with pedestal mounts or are submersible.  Make sure you select a pump for the power needed to empty the area of water.  You will probably want to opt for a pump with a capacitive switch for hassle-free automatic operation.  Select a sump-pump with a vertical switch that mechanically turns the sump pump on or off automatically.

Those are just a few tips to help you along the way.  The best tip of all, is to choose the right person to install it.  In Snohomish, WA and the surrounding area that man is Shawn Allen, the owner of Allen Plumbing.  He has been a Seattle area sump pump installation expert for decades.  Give Shawn a call today at (425) 367-4744.
