Sump Pit Bag

Yesterday a home inspector text me a pic of a sealed sump pit as part of a Radon mitigation system. He said there were no fire collars on the pipe going through the garage, and that he wanted to show me what he has seen before but never took a picture of, the sump pit bag. This certified company, it seams, could not figure out how to seal the sump pit with two pipes coming out of the pit, so he used some clear plastic and duct taped the rest. Unbelievable. I have heard of someone doing this with a pedestal sump pump so the seller of a home could save money. What a nice guy. What he does not realize is that pedestal sump pumps are air cooled. As soon as you cut off the air supply they can overheat and fail. This, with the buyer, who may not know any better, thinking they are safe. Another reason I will not match another companies price. They just don’t do what we do or seem to care about how their work affects anyone in the future

Rain, Rain and more Rain

Last night and today we have be deluged with Rain with more to come later on. I have received a large number of calls with questions regarding the function of systems and sump pumps. One thing we always try to mention is if you have ever thought of getting a battery backup sump pump system that the time to have one installed is before we seal the sump pit. It only takes 1/4 of inch of water to ruin everything in the basement, so a backup system is cheap insurance.

PHC Pro Series 2400 Battery Backup Sump Pump System.A backup system can run when power goes out, when your main pump fails, or when your main pump can’t keep up it will add pumping volume capacity and hopefully avoid any water issues in the basement. We sell Pro Series pumps and backup systems. They are the best quality in my opinion and have the best pumping volume capacity. Don’t wait for an emergency to get a backup system. Plan ahead, it’s peace of mind.

Radon Systems

I just want to thank everyone who has used our services. I truly believe that by being involved in this business that we are helping to save lives. To date we have installed over 6000 Radon systems. If 8 out of a thousand get lung cancer from Radon then we saved 48 lives, in theory. I have had so many people lately thank me for our services. From the neatness of our installs, cleaning up when we are finished, our polite installers and standing behind our work. Yes, sometimes we have to go back because something was missed or something happened to our system. A large percent of our call backs are do to something else affecting our system, not our workmanship.  We try to go back when we are in the area to avoid any more costs to the customer. With the economy being slow I feel lucky to still be in a service oriented business. Other companies are giving away systems, and unfortunately quality along with the price. Because we have refused to lower our standards we are still getting the majority of the jobs. Integrity, caring about what we do, quality of work and a fair price will keep us ahead of our competition. Thanks again, and I hope the next year will be even better for everyone.
