From the House to the Street.

No, this is not a command for you to pull your car out of the garage. It is how your sewer line runs in the Southern Fox Valley. Here is a simple explanation…wastewater is removed from your home via drainpipes running from such places as sinks, showers, bathtubs, and toilets, then into the building’s 4-inch main sewer line located under the slab.

When you buy an older home around Sandwich and the surrounding Fox Valley, you buy older pipes, that is unless they’ve been replaced with PVC pipes. If your home was built before the 1980s you probably have original pipes that are now reaching the end of their lifespan. Scott Swanson is ready to help!

Scott is the owner of Bee Plumbing in Sandwich. When it comes to plumbing maintenance and emergencies Scott is the man to call. He will diagnose your sewer line problems and give you logical solutions. Wherever you live around the Fox Valley just look for the correct number on Scott’s website

Is there a difference between sump pumps and ejector pumps? There are plenty of both in homes around The Southern Fox Valley in Illinois. You can be sure that Scott Swanson, the owner of Bee Plumbing, services and replaces BOTH sump pumps and ejector pumps.

A sump pump –

1. Collects water and stores it.

2. When it reaches its capacity a float switch activates.

3. It is then eliminated from your basement via a discharge pipe.

An ejector pump…is generally connected to your storm drain in order to deliver water away from the house. The lid on the ejector pump closes to protect your home from harmful chemicals.

Does your home in The Southern Fox Valley contain a sump pump or ejector pump? If so, and you suspect that they are not ready to handle the spring rains that are coming, then call Bee Plumbing and Scott will come out and troubleshoot it for you.
