When your Garbage Disposal goes on the Fritz.

Make no mistake about it, when a garbage disposal stops working it can bring a kitchen and its family to a screeching halt.  We take it for granted using it once or twice a day, maybe more.  It gobbles up kitchen waste.  When it ceases to do that you have to collect the mess and put it out for the trash pick-up.  No one needs that!

Here are some DIY tips when that important appliance is troubled –

1.  Make sure there is still power going to the unit by flipping the switch.
2.  If the power is on, then it may be clogged.
3.  Reconnect the power and run water down the drain.

It is not always a simple fix.  Sometimes having a master plumber troubleshoot and fix the problem is necessary.  Whenever a cranky garbage disposal disrupts your life in the Morton, East Peoria, or Pekin area call Dave Bailey of Dave Bailey Plumbing.  You won’t do better for all of your plumbing needs including garbage disposal repair or replacement.  Call (309) 265-6788.

Should Every Home have a Sump Pump?

We seem to pride ourselves in the best washer/dryer combo that we can afford.  We have a big full-efficiency refrigerator, our dishwasher is second to none.  How much attention to home owners in Central Illinois pay to their sump pump.  Because it is “out of sight, out of mind” in the bowels of your basement it does not get the same attention.

It may not be terribly glamorous, but boy does it afford us peace of mind!  Rain and snow saturate the ground around and below your home's foundation. Hydrostatic pressure causes a build-up against the concrete walls and will either cause cracks or overwork your drainage system.  The result can be disastrous.

This small pump installed in the lowest part of a basement keeps the space under the building dry and prevents flooding.  Don’t ignore the importance of this appliance!  In Morton, East Peoria, Pekin and the surrounding area call Dave Bailey he is Central Illinois’ premier sump pump installation and repair professional.  Call Dave Bailey Plumbing at (309) 265-6788.
