A flooded basement ranks high on the list of most-dreaded home repair nightmares. Fortunately, an experienced plumber can keep up with the preventative maintenance that will enable you to take this worry off your list.
The threat of a basement flood can come from inside the house as well as from the exterior. The basement of a typical house probably has a tank-type water heater; there may also be a separate water tank.
Both of these items can appear deceptively sound and strong on the outside, while rust is weakening tank walls from the inside.
When a water tank fails, it does so in a major way. A good plumber knows when it’s time to replace water heaters and water tanks to avoid a major water "event" in your basement.
The supply hoses for the washing machine represent another potential leak. The quality and durability of these hoses can vary greatly. Plumbers can check hose condition and —if necessary— replace worn or weak hoses with new versions that eliminate this leak possibility.
The sump pump is a star player in your basement. It has to be a strong, reliable performer whenever wet weather starts the flow of water into your basement drainage system. When the water’s flowing and the threat of a basement flood is growing, you don’t want to have any doubts about your sump pump’s ability to do it's job.
