All drains have a similar construction. At the bottom of the drainpipe is a curved section of pipe called a trap. Under sinks this trap is shaped like an "U," while most bathtubs have a slightly different shaped trap called a "P" trap, since it's shaped like the letter "P." The curves in the trap are there
to "trap" some water in the drain line, and prevent sewer gases from coming up the pipe and smelling up the house. Over time, however, the traps sometimes get blocked with things like cooking grease or food particles (in kitchen drains) or hair and soap scum (in tubs and bathroom sinks). Call us for help before the drain gets fully clogged. There are many preventative measures available: drain covers come in many styles and are useful at keeping larger food particles and hair from entering the drain; use Bio Clean on a regular basis to reduce sludge in the drain pipe
; never pour grease directly down the drain-let it cool and dispose of in the household garbage.

keep the area under the building dry and to prevent it from flooding. Usually, sump pumps are installed in specially constructed sump pits. Water flows into the sump pit through drains or by natural water migration through the soil. The sump pump's job is to pump the water out of the pit and away from the building so the basement or crawlspace stays dry. We can install new pump or inspect your non-functioning pump.
