Pump Alarms for Sump Pumps
One occurrence that most of us will eventually face is that one day our sump pump or sewage ejector pump will fail, leaving behind a potential mess and insurance nightmare. If you’ve already been through this situation then you already know what a catastrophe this can be. Now, what if we told you that this was largely a preventable issue? Would you be interested in knowing that there are design alternatives?
Blue Sky is experienced in designing and installing Pump Alarms that can alert you to a needed repair BEFORE a costly overflow mess is encountered. That way, you are empowered to take corrective action before having to contact your water extraction professional or insurance agent. These alarms monitor the action of your sump pump or sewage ejection systems and sound a local or even remote alarm. These systems can alert you to reach out to your plumber to correct an issue in a timely and much less costly manner.
Sump Pumps vs. Back-Up Pumps
Also, if you have a home that you swear is built upon an old river bed because during certain months the sump pump runs practically all of the time – you need a back-up pump. A back-up pump is usually a two-stage sump pump or ejector pump design that should the primary pump fail, the secondary stage pump will engage. Blue Sky can assess your home and recommend the staged sump pump system that will give you real peace of mind throughout the year.
Live in an area where power is often lost? There’s still plenty of help for you! Blue Sky can design and install sump pumps with battery back-ups. Whenever main power is lost, the secondary battery back-up engages to continue the work, providing you the ultimate in back-up design and flexibility.
Still need more protection? One thing that is very reliable during power outages is the municipal water system. Just think about it – When was the last time you lost city water during a storm? We can use this system to provide a layer of protection for your home and family that you may not have considered by installing a back-up pump that is powered by city water pressure. Once you own one of these systems you’ll be the only person on your street without flood worries when the next big storm hits!
Why is my drain clogged? I’m so careful!
We believe you when you tell us that you are so careful about putting grease down your drains. Unfortunately, most people end up putting it down accidentally no matter how hard they try to do the opposite. When you rinse plates, bowls, pots, and pans in your sink, they often have a thin layer of grease on them. This gets rinsed down the drain with the rest of the debris from your plate. When this grease contacts a cold pipe downstream from the kitchen sink, it solidifies and attaches to the pipe wall. Over the years, even the smallest amounts of grease can build up and cause clogs. Don’t worry, though! Your Blue Sky plumber will get that clog out fast!
What kind of sink should I get?
When it comes to getting a new sink, you have many options. These include:
- Cast iron
- Stainless steel
- Enameled steel
- And more!
When our experts help you install a sink, we’ll ask you what you plan to do with it. Will you wash dishes in it regularly? Is it likely you will drop dishes or silverware in it? Then, we’ll ask you about your preferences. Do you want a large sink or a small one? Do you want a sink that sits on top of the counter or below the counter level? Once we know the answers to these questions, we’ll work with you to find the perfect kind of sink for your home. In general, cast iron and stainless steel are more durable than some other types of sinks, but they may require special care.
What kind of water heater should I get?
Most of the time, the type of water heater you get will be determined by the type of connections you already have. Unless you are highly motivated to change the type of water heater that you have, the best choice is usually to get the same kind that was installed before. If you are in a place to change the type of water heater that you have, gas is often the better option. It is cheaper and can heat larger quantities of water faster. However, gas water heaters are usually larger than electric ones and you cannot store flammable liquids nearby.

What is hydro jetting?
Hydro jetting offers a way to clean your drains without digging up your yard or pulling your home apart to access clogged pipes. Instead, we use a tool that sprays highly-pressurized water into your pipes. We control the pressure of the water and where it sprays, so we can remove your clog and clean your entire pipe. A hydrojetting tool has one nozzle that sprays forward and 6-8 that sprays backward. On the first pass, the reverse-facing jets propel the nozzle forward while the front one breaks up clogs. When we pull the nozzle back through the pipe, the reverse jets scour the edges of the pipe until they look like new. If your plumber thinks that hydrojetting is a good option for you, we’ll let you know and get the job done fast.
What is the best kind of pipe for my home?
Most of the time, we suggest plastic or PEX/PVC piping for your home. This material lasts for a long time because it doesn’t rust and is less likely to crack or break than some other types of pipe. Unless you are in a very specific situation, which our plumbers will discover, we highly recommend this type of piping for your home.
How do I know if my toilet is leaking?
Toilet leaks are more common than you might think. This can make your water bill sky-high and leave you wondering what is going on. Here are a few signs that your toilet is leaking:
- You frequently have to jiggle the handle to make the toilet stop running.
- You have to hold down the handle when to flush to get the tank to empty.
- Water runs over the top of the overflow pipe.
- You hear sounds of water running in the toilet when it is not being used.
- Water runs down the sides of the toilet bowl long after the toilet was last used.
- You hear the toilet tank refilling even though it hasn’t been emptied recently.
What can I put down my garbage disposal?
As long as you use enough water, you can put almost any non-fibrous food down your garbage disposal. This includes bones up to ½” in diameter, coffee grounds, eggs and egg shells, orange rinds, apples, and potato peelings. Most problems occur when you don’t use enough water and don’t allow the water to run for at least 10 seconds after the food disappears.
