What to Consider when Adding a Bathroom to Your Basement
If you’re thinking of adding a bathroom to your basement, there are a number of factors to consider. Plumbing, of course, is at the top of that list. A bathroom doesn’t function without plumbing, and basement bathrooms require special care in order to avoid plumbing problems in the future. Because subterranean spaces do not allow for the same type of drainage that is found in other areas of your home, your Plainfield plumbing technician will speak with you about suitable alternatives to the usual gravity-fed toilets.
Preventing Basement Flooding
Ejector pumps and sump pumps are often confused with one another because they look similar, but they actually serve two very different purposes. An ejector pump is found in basements that have a bathroom or subterranean laundry. Unless your basement offers adequate fall for drainage of “grey water” and sewage, you most assuredly have an ejector pump (or your plumber will recommend it when you request a quote for a new basement bathroom).
This appliance forces waste material up and out to the main sewage line of your home. A malfunctioning ejector pump requires the immediate assistance of a licensed plumber, as it is very likely to result in raw sewage backup in your living space. Obviously, this is a major health hazard, and cleanup is typically quite expensive.
Unlike an ejector pump, however, sump pumps are not relied on for daily use. This appliance exists solely as a preventative measure, and it is perhaps the most important factor in whether or not your basement remains dry (and live-able).
Using this system, a special type of drainage tile (sometimes called “weeping tile”) feeds water from the outside soil into a sump pump pit (or basin). When enough water has gathered there, the pump is triggered, forcing water out and away from the home.
A failing or overwhelmed sump pump can be catastrophic for your home. It can lead to:
- Basement flooding
- Property damage
- Stained walls and ceilings
- Mold growth
- Structural integrity issues
Of course, like anything, these pumps and drainage tiles require regular maintenance in order to ensure they continue to function properly. If your sump pump or ejector pump requires service, contact us right away. We also offer drainage tile cleaning services.
Laundry Room Remodels & Service
Laundry areas may be isolated as a separate room, in the basement of a home, or part of a larger mudroom or utility area in the home. Whatever the case may be, there are certain necessities that go along with the modern lifestyle. Namely, we all need a place to wash and dry our clothes safely. At Tritan Plumbing, we know how important these appliances are to you and your family.
We offer a range of laundry room and utility room remodeling services, including:
- Washer and dryer installation
- Water softener installation and maintenance
- Gas line installation, maintenance, and repair
- Water line installation, maintenance, and repair
- Rerouting of any of the above (in the event that you are remodeling or altering the layout of your laundry area)
- Drain cleaning and repair
Most people would agree that one of the most important modern conveniences is a hot shower. Water heaters have long been essential to our personal comfort and quality of life, and water softeners and filters are also gaining popularity among property owners.
When any of these appliances break, it’s a terrible inconvenience. If you are having trouble with any of the appliances found in your basement or utility room, give us a call right away. We’ll respond so that you can get back to enjoying all of the best that your home has to offer.
