I thought that my sump pump had ended its life and needed to be replaced. The contractor I found through Home Adviser came out the following day and arrived reasonably promptly. The technician tested the pump and it wasn't responding. He then checked the breaker panel and all seemed well. However he checked to see if power was reaching the outlet, it wasn't so he tripped some breakers and reset them and the power to my pump came on and the pump works so a replacement wasn't necessary. He charged $75.00 which I think was reasonable for a call-out fee and time spent.
Sump pumps are used to re-route water away from the lowest point of your home's foundation and protect your basement and easily damaged areas from flooding. In most cases, your sump pump is hardwired to your electrical system or possibly plugged into a wall outlet. Because these power sources can often fail in a storm when water damage occurs, sump pumps are typically equipped with battery backup power.

I’m Handyman Donald and I like to fix things. Even as a kid, I wouldn’t toss out broken toys. I’d take them apart to see what made them tick, then figure how to bring them back to life. From toys, I graduated to cars, boats and motorcycles, then airplanes and missiles in the military. Now I work on houses, and I say with confidence, “You break it, I’ll fix it”
Our Field Technician Mark W was thorough, professional and very helpful. He snaked our drain from our washing machine to the end of pipe and all was done quickly, very professionally, the work area was cleaned and he provided valuable information on how to keep our drain clean for the future. We have used John Moore for complete A/C and heating installation to routine plumbing needs and could not be happier with their overall quality of service and pricing. Would highly recommend their services to anyone, especially my family and friends.
Wooden pipes were used in London and elsewhere during the 16th and 17th centuries. The pipes were hollowed-out logs, which were tapered at the end with a small hole in which the water would pass through. The multiple pipes were then sealed together with hot animal fat. They were often used in Montreal and Boston in the 1800s, and built-up wooden tubes were widely used in the USA during the 20th century. These pipes, used in place of corrugated iron or reinforced concrete pipes, were made of sections cut from short lengths of wood. Locking of adjacent rings with hardwood dowel pins produced a flexible structure. About 100,000 feet of these wooden pipes were installed during WW2 in drainage culverts, storm sewers and conduits, under highways and at army camps, naval stations, airfields and ordnance plants.
