Living in Richmond, Virginia and surrounding areas, means enjoying four seasons, including the occasional hazardous weather due to hurricanes. There are a few things you can do to ensure about plumbing prevention during hurricane season.
To begin, since flooding is likely to happen, it’s a good idea to have a sump pump installed in your basement. Consider having one that works on batteries since power outages are common during hurricanes. You do not want to be stuck with a basement full of water, and the power being out. If the basement does flood, and the sump pump does not work, it’s important to call a professional plumber because the flooding can lead to electrical shock if water is present and you do not know what you are doing. Mike Wilson Plumbing is experienced in sump pump installation and repair. Your safety during hurricane weather is Mike’s top priority. Make sure to have his number handy during inclement weather – (804) 641-6570.
Another issue during hurricane weather is sewer backup. This problem is possible in both municipal sewage systems and septic systems. Prevention is key. You can have an experienced plumber take a look at your sewer drain and have them preform routine cleanings and maintenance to ensure everything is working properly in case of excess water. When your plumbing equipment is working properly, the chances of something going wrong during inclement water is greatly decreased.
