Summer Plumbing Basics

As we finally make the transition from cold weather to warmer temperatures, you may find you are spending more time outside. If you are setting up your backyard pool, or if you are wondering if your home is safe from flooding caused by incessant rains, it is wise to know when to call in a plumbing professional. Here at Elk Grove Village Sewer and Plumbing, we have been serving clients throughout the northwest suburbs for decades and in all seasons. However, summer plumbing issues are more common than you may think. Here’s what you need to know as you prep for a fun season outside.


Check That Sump Pump

These past few months have been rainy and wet, which means your sump pump has been working hard to keep your basement from flooding. Too much work can strain an older sump pump, or cause damage that could lead to a water crisis later in the season. If your sump pump is more than 7 years old, or if you have noticed standing water in your basement, it is wise to call in the experts at Elk Grove Village Sewer and Plumbing. We can assess your current pump situation and advise you on solutions that will keep your basement dry for years to come.


Pool Plumbing Issues

Setting up your backyard pool is a sure sign of summer, but if you are noticing some flooding or poor drainage, it could be due to any number of plumbing issues. Don’t tackle the problem on your own. Instead, consult with a professional to assure your swimmers are safe and your yard is dry.


Your Summer Honey-Do List

Summertime often gives us more time to pursue DIY projects around the house. If you are struggling to complete your list, or if you are running into plumbing projects that are well beyond your experience level, don’t wait until things get out of hand to call our team in. We are here to help you knock out that to-do list well before the dog days of summer set in.

How can we help your summer be even better? Give us a call to talk about your projects or concerns today. We are ready to serve you with our experienced and dedicated team.
