As another hot summer ends in Oakville, our office is well prepared and waiting for the phone to begin ringing as it does every year at this time to inquire about sump pumps. Autumn and spring experience heavy rainfalls and run-off in this area, and we get a flood of calls (pardon the pun!), with the W-5 on sump pumps and how they work.
The two easiest signs that a problem has developed within your drainage system is when you hear gurgling noises coming from your drain and notice that it’s operating slowly. This situation isn’t very problematic and most people choose to ignore what they have seen and heard. Do not delay! The longer you ignore the issue, the more time the drain has to continue backing up, and you can wind up with severely clogged pipes.
