Prevent Your Home from Flooding

Spring is approaching, which means all the snow you have on your lawn can cause a big melt down!

Protect your home from flooding !

When melt down starts, check on your sump pump regularly if you don’t have a back up pump.

1. If there is a constant humming sound from your pump, it is malfunctioning.
2. If there is water by the pit call us immediately
3. Is your basement bathroom toilet backing up? This could be a sign that your ejector pump might be on its way out!

Save the stress of a malfunctioning sump pump and install our watchdog battery back-up pumps.
The pump will automatically turn on when there power outage or your sump pump fails.

Check out our specials:
½ hp cast iron pro flow sump pump $600 includes installation
Watchdog battery backup $1000 includes installation

Frozen and Burst Pipes

There is another deep freeze on its way. Have you had frozen pipes before?

Protect yourself:
1. Turn on your faucets to a slow trickle [This will keep the water flow moving in your pipes]
2. If you have an area that frequently freezes in cold weather use a heater to keep the area at a warm temperature
3. Know where your water shut off is!

Your pipes are frozen:
1.Not all frozen pipes will burst. Approx. 60% of all our calls with frozen pipes do not burst . This obviously saves you money but there is always that risk.
2.If your pipes are frozen do not leave the house without first turning off the water supply.
3.The risky time is when the freeze starts to thaw.

Your pipes have burst:
1.Turn off your water supply if you haven’t already.
2.Call us immediately at 630-469-1395. We will locate,remove and replace the burst pipe. We have direct contact with emergency restoration crews to cleanup any major water damage that is certified to use with your insurance company.

All our labor work has a lifetime warranty. We are available on weekdays and weekends. No extra charge during regular business hours.
