Homeowners use sump pumps for two reasons. In instances where basement flooding occurs regularly, sump pumps send water way from the home to municipal storm drains or dry wells. They also help to remove dampness in instances where the water table is above the home’s foundation.
They work by removing water that has accumulated in water-collecting sump basins. They are typically hard-wired into a home’s electrical system, but may also include a battery backup in case of a power outage.
There are two types of sump pumps:
1. Pedestal sump pumps have their motor mounted above the sump for easy servicing.
2. Submersible sump pumps are entirely mounted inside the sump and are sealed to prevent short circuits.
Water heaters are typically set to deliver water at between 140-160 degrees. Unfortunately, scalding can occur at temperatures as low as 120 degrees. It kills more than 100 people every year and injures more than 2,000.
You can lower the thermostat at your hot water heater, but that may impact the effectiveness of your dishwashers and washing machines. That’s why Wagner Mechanical recommends anti-scald devices.
There are many anti-scald devices from which to choose. Our experts can go over your options and help you choose the best one to protect your family.
