You’ve Got a Great Set of Pipes.

That is something you would love to hear at Karaoke.  It is also something you wouldn’t mind hearing about your home.  As a Seattle area homeowner, you understand the potential damage that could result from a neglected plumbing leak.  Preventing this possible water damage isn’t always “piece of cake”, especially for homeowners with no plumbing experience.

Here are just some of the common causes for leaks –

1.  Corrosion can eat away at your pipes
2.  Rubber seals degrade over time
3.  Too much water pressure (especially at shower time) could be too much
4.  A crack caused by an accident such as a child throwing a toy at a pipe
5.  The pipes were laid incorrectly in the first place

Pipes can crack or break almost without warning.  If they do so in your Snohomish or Seattle area castle you should call Shawn Allen immediately.  Shawn can be found on the web at  Shawn has served the area for decades and you can count on him to repair your home’s pipes the first time.  Just call Shawn at (425) 367-4744.

Your Sump Pump…Repair or Replace.

Let’s face it, for Seattle area homeowners a sump pump is an essential plumbing fixture in many households.  Although it is separate from the main plumbing system, the sump pump prevents flooding by removing storm water that can accumulate in the basement of your home.  Your sump pump should look relatively clean most of the time.

That hard-working sump pump typically lives in your home’s basement in a recession called a sump pit. It’s hidden away down there, it can be “out of sight, out of mind,” but keeping the pump running properly may be all that stands between your basement and a devastating flood entering the rest of your home.

So, if things don’t look right with your sump pump, BEFORE an emergency you need to make a decision if you should have it repaired or replaced.  That answer is a phone call away.  Shawn Allen is the Snohomish and Seattle area’s sump pump expert.  Don’t wait until it is too late!  Call Shawn at (425) 367-4744.
