In above grade homes, sewage systems operate based on gravity, wherein sewage flows downhill and enters a municipal sewer line or a septic tank. However, sewage that originates in a basement of a home is typically situated below septic or sewage lines and gravity can’t be applied to move the waste. In such instances, a sewage pump needs to be installed.
The function of a sewage pump is to move sewage liquids and solids between one location and another. Typically, in residential applications, sewage is pumped from a sewage basin to a sewer system or a septic tank. A sewage pump is installed at the lowest point of the sewage basin. The basin itself is placed at or below the floor level of the basement.
Since the pump is submerged most of the time, it is also referred to as a submersible sewage pump. Sewage pump can be automatic, manual or dual mode. Manual pumps need be manually turned on/off as the need arises. Automatic pumps have a floating switch, which turns the pump on and off whenever sewage in the basin reaches a certain level.
Due to a possibility of sewage overflow, it is generally not advised to use a manual sewage pump inside of a sewage basin. Sewage pumps are centrifugal pumps, with special design considerations enabling solids to pass without clogging the pump. When the pump is turned on, the motor starts to rotate the impeller, creating the pressure that pushes water into the impeller and from there into the discharge pipe.
The pump housing, which contains a motor and an impeller, is made with cast iron and is built for long term use. While the most common use of a sewage pump is to pump residential waste, some models can also be used in industrial, commercial and agricultural applications.

The drain is one area of the house that is not thought about often. Only when there’s a maintenance issue this area is given any consideration. Once in a while, things need taking care of to avoid long-term maintenance problems.
A few handy tips and information can help homes maintain their drains sufficiently enough to ask for professional help only when required.
Drains become slow when they face issues. Before becoming dysfunctional, drains begin to show slow performance. The professional drain cleaning service will identify if the slow drain is due to a blockage in the homeowner’s system or if it is caused by the main line serving the home. They can diagnose the problem and ensure proper treatment so that the blockage doesn’t turn into something serious. If you can identify the source of the problem, well. If not, call the professionals.
Every home faces this issue. Even when the drainage may be working fine, there could be food items rotting further down the line or something more serious that causes a foul odor. Professional service providers will detect the source of the odor and take steps to get rid of it. They have the equipment and experience to deal with such problems.
They are professionals who have the knowledge to recognize other serious issues. The problem may have something to do with the bathroom or the kitchen. If not fixed, the problem might lead to a blockage or a leak within the home. There could also be a potential problem with the vent in the drain that may threaten the safety of the people in the property. Timely involvement and detection of problems can help avoid major expenses later.
Sooner or later, every home will face the drain clogging problem eventually. Whenever you are faced with the prospect of a blocked drain, engage a professional from the Schaumburg, Illinois drain cleaning service.
When choosing a professional drain cleaning service, ask for a free estimate. Most companies provide a quote. The rate may vary from one to another. But knowing the upfront costs will help you decide which service to go for the cleaning and also give you can idea of how much it is going to cost you.
Though the drain clog might bother you most during the day time and that is when it is best to get it fixed. But emergencies may happen any time during the day. Select a service who will do the plumbing even during night time if required.
Is there a money-back guarantee? In the event that the cleaning was ineffective or the level of service wasn’t as expected, ask for money back. A company that provides money back is sure of its service levels. That helps you be assured you will get quality service.

Atlanta Decatur Buckhead & Lithonia, GA – J Squared Plumbing offers commercial and residential installation, maintenance and repairs of tankless water heaters of all kinds.
With our necessary certifications, license and training our job is to assure are customers are treated in a professional and knowledgeable manner
There are three reasons why the popularity of tankless water heaters are growing. One, tankless water heaters save space as they are wall-mounted and do not require large storage tanks. Two, they have greater energy efficiency as they avoid the need to heat and reheat water in a storage tank. Three, they have an increased life of nearly 15 – 20 years.
Non-condensing tankless water heaters – these heaters much like a condensing tankless water heater the non-condensing tankless water heaters will push the exhaust gases out a vent to the outside.
They will cool outside the unit. These gases are around 300 degrees and need special materials for the venting to withstand the temperatures and not corrode which usually prove to be very expensive.
Condensing tankless water heaters – these water heaters extract heat from exhaust gases through different means and produce cooler gases around 100 degrees Fahrenheit. These cooling gases produce condensation inside the unit.
The efficiency of the unit goes up because you can use cheaper ventilation materials as the gases are cooler.
By capturing the residual exhaust heat to heat the water, the unit has achieved a higher efficiency. There are factors that need to be taken into account with this unit as it may not always condensate.
Surrounding air temperature and air humidity can affect condensation. Since the exhaust gases have cooled inside the unit, the condensation is now inside the unit as well.
This is where the heat exchanger comes into play. This part must be made of better materials to withstand the corrosive nature of the gases. These are usually made of stainless steel alloy.
The collected condensation needs to be fully neutralized before it can be drained outside. This is usually done by special fertilization or dilution.
Hybrid tankless water heaters – these water heaters fill that gap by combining the higher hot water output of a tank heater with the endless heating capacity of a tankless.
And in recent years, manufacturers have introduced different variations on the theme.
What the hybrids have in common, though, is that unlike tankless heaters, they use the same gas and venting hookups as a conventional tanks.
Some hybrid tankless water heaters have been known to pump out upwards of 180 gallons an hour. That’s a lot of hot water!
