Why You Should Hire a Plumber, Not a Handyman

By | Residential Plumber, Toronto Plumber | No Comments

If you’re planning on having plumbing work done that requires more than simply changing a faucet or installing a toilet, you should hire a plumber, not a handyman. The reason is that a handyman, while he/she can handle many different types of jobs, like patching a hole in the wall, painting a room or changing a hard-to-reach light bulb, they have no formal plumbing qualifications, licenses or certificates. Indeed, none are needed to be a handyman.

Signs Your Sump Pump Needs Maintenance

Sump pump maintenance?


Sump Pump Maintenance TorontoMany homes have sump pumps installed to prevent rainwater flooding in basements. When ground water starts to accumulate in a basement the sump pump will kick in and pump water out and away from your foundation. If you want to prevent flooding in your basement, you need to make sure your sump pump is always in working condition, the easiest way to ensure this is with regular maintenance. You should additionally watch for three signs that your sump pump needs maintenance beyond routine measures.

Noise: A large sign that you cannot miss hearing is noise. A sump pump does make a normal amount of noise as it pumps out water, but in a normal home, this noise should not be loud enough to hear in other rooms. If your sump pump suddenly makes an unusual noise such as grinding or suddenly louder than normal, it could be caused by strange matter making it is way into the pump. If chunks of dirt or grit get into your sump pump, they will clog the impeller so that it cannot rotate and pump water out of your basement correctly. A professional plumber can easily clear this blockage.

Rising water: If a sump pump is installed and you have rising water in your basement, there is a sign of trouble. A sump pumps main function is to keep water levels down, if the pump is not working, it means the impeller may be broker or the pump motor may be damaged. A sump pump can even stop working because of clog in its hoses or a faulty float switch. Rather than playing around trying to figure out what the issue might be as water is rising in your basement, you should call a plumber to tackle the issue.

Bad Smells: A basement normally smells somewhat musty, especially if it is an unfinished basement. If you smell a very unpleasant or overpowering odor in your basement, especially near the sump pump there is a good chance that you may have leaking seals or that a small foreign matter is clogging your pump. You need to get your sump pump repaired right away, first to prevent farther damage to your sump pump and second to prevent any health hazards.
