Q: What is the most common reason for sump pump failure?
A: The primary cause for sump pump failure is a switching problem. The pump can move around inside the basin at times. Such movement causes the float that operates the switch to lodge against its side. Sometimes debris can also be to blame. Ensuring that your pump switch and float arm assembly move freely is very important. Ace Plumbing is here to maintain or replace your sump pump.

Q: Why won't my lavatory or sink hold water?
A: Hair and/or foreign matter accumulate and clog up the pop-up drain or strainer over time. Another cause is a worn pop-up drain or basket strainer. The solution is to clean out hair and scum build-up, then tighten the assembly nut connecting lift rod attachment to waste mechanism under lavatory drain. Replace the waste assembly or basket strainer if worn.

Q: How do I prevent my outdoor/indoor faucets from freezing up in the winter?
A: Before freezing temperatures arrive, close the shut-off valve on the pipes that lead to your outdoor faucets. Then open the outdoor faucets to drain any existing water.

For indoor faucets that occasionally freeze in winter, try leaving cabinet doors open to allow warm air to reach the faucet plumbing. Also, you can try allowing water to slowly trickle into the sink. Insulating water pipes that may be exposed to freezing temperatures or wind may prove helpful as well.

If your house will be empty during the winter months, make sure that your water pipes are drained before leaving. Insulate pipes in unheated areas such as basements or garages

Q: If a plunger fails to dislodge a toilet stoppage and the water level is low inside the bowl, what should I do?
A: Try filling a bucket with warm water and pour it into the bowl from waist level or higher. If the water level remains low, repeat as necessary.
