What’s That Smell!

Believe me, there is no mistaking it when a sewer starts to back up.  Your nose knows.  One of the visual signs of a sewer that is backing up is less and less water in your toilet.  Sewer lines by their very design will carry waste water away from your property to keep your home sanitary keeping wastes away from clean water.

Plumbing systems are made up of two primary parts…the water supply and the waste disposal. Most of the serious back-ups occur at the main sewer line.  You may even get a clue from “listening” to your toilet.  Is it making a “gurgling” sound?  Once the sewer line is cleared from the blockage and a camera inspection is done, the plumber might make some recommendations.

That is why Central Illinois residents have counted on Dave Bailey Plumbing for many years at the first sign of a sewer back-up on their property.  Dave and his crew have the tools and the knowledge to get things flowing properly again.  If you have sewer problems in Morton, IL. and the surrounding area call Dave Bailey Plumbing at (309) 265-6788.

Keep on Grinding.

Let’s talk about something called a grinder pump.  What, exactly is a grinder sump pump?  Here is a dictionary definition: a grinder sump pump is a conveyance device used to eliminate wastewater.  The way it works is that when wastewater is inside of the tank and it reaches a certain level the pump turns on.  Then it grinds up all of that waste and harmlessly eliminates it into a sewer system septic tank.

There are actually two types of grinder pumps.  One is known as a semi-positive displacement while the other is defined as centrifugal.  Normal household pumps run between one and two horsepower.  There is something called a level sensor as well.  It may be built into the pump or attached externally which are called floats.

All of this may mean little or nothing to you until your Central Illinois home needs a grinder pump.  That is where Dave Bailey Plumbing comes in.  Dave and his crew specialize in repairing and replacing sump pumps in the area around Morton, East Peoria, and Pekin.  Call Dave Bailey Plumbing anytime at (309) 265-6788.
