My Sump Pump is Freezing.

This time of year in Chattanooga the thermometer dips into the 30’s on a frequent basis.  Cold weather takes a toll on almost everything.  The truth is, basements tend to be colder and less insulated, which could potentially cause your sump pump to freeze.  A frozen sump pump could cause your home lots of damage!

Here are some things you can do to prevent sump pump failure in winter –

1.  Redirect the waterflow to make your sump pump’s work a little easier.
2.  Put heating tape around the intake and discharge line.
3.  Keep your home always above 55 degrees.
4.  Install a battery back-up.

For that final task as well as any maintenance or installation of a new unit please rely on the sump pump experts in the Chattanooga area.  That would be All Home Plumbing.  Sump pumps and their care this time of year is one of their many areas of expertise.  Call All Home Plumbing anytime at (423) 598-1466.

Guess What Room got a Workout this Holiday Season.

It’s almost over now, but during the last couple of months the room with the most activity in your home might have been the kitchen.  Thanksgiving dinner, holiday food preparation, the garbage disposal and the dishwasher working at full capacity.  If this sounds a little like the activity in your castle it may be time to reset!

Have you noticed that the garbage disposal is not quite as efficient as it used to be?  Are there any leaks below your dishwasher?  How about the kitchen sink?  Is it flowing freely without any signs of drip, drip, drip?  It is even possible that your refrigerator now needs repairing or replacing after this busy season.

All Home Plumbing to the rescue!  All Home Plumbing is exactly as the name implies when you need plumbing work in any room in your Chattanooga area home you give them a call.  They have been keeping things flowing in Chattanooga for more than two decades.  Have 2020 vision this new year and rely on All Home Plumbing at (423) 598-1466.
