Basement Plumbing

Your basement might serve as your home’s “man cave,” a family room, utility/laundry room or just a place to store stuff. Water doesn’t care how you use it, but in the event of a flood, the basement is typically “ground zero” for damage.

While there are a number of ways to protect your home, when catastrophe hits you need a plumbing expert that can tackle the issue. Whether it’s a leaking hot water heater, failed sump or ejector pump, burst pipes or faulty fixtures, VFP Plumbing has the expertise to take care of your basement plumbing issues.

Basement plumbing services in Kane, Kendall, Cook and DuPage counties

Basement plumbing requires a specialized approach because it is often located in a subgrade part of the home, which means things like bathroom plumbing, shower drains and laundry rooms may require an ejector pump to expel wastewater.

Also, in the absence of water-using appliances, many basements require a sump pump to keep the basement dry and prevent flooding when the big rains hit Kane, Kendall, Cook and DuPage counties.

Installing a toilet in or adding a bathroom to your basement

Adding a bathroom to the basement is a perfect solution for a growing family or to boost property value. However, this is not a home improvement project that homeowners should tackle on their own, particularly when it comes to installing a toilet and the necessary plumbing.

Drainage is one of the most crucial considerations as many basements are built below grade, which means you’ll need to install an ejector pump to get rid of wastewater. A professional plumber from VFP Plumbing will determine the pipe size for your basement bathroom and ensure all drains will accommodate your needs.

Also, your plumber should be able to assist you in making decisions on the type of toilet to be installed. Pressure-assisted toilets, upflushing toilets and sewage ejector systems are among the options. If your project includes a full bathroom, then you’ll also need to decide on whether to install a bathtub or shower, which your plumber should be able to help you with.

Plumber Working in Basement

Basement sump pump services

As many Chicagoans know, basement flooding occurs quickly. To prevent it, your sump pump needs to be ready to take on the big storms. At Old World Plumbing, we can help you get your flood control plan rolling before the big storms roll through the area.

We will determine if your current sump pump is big enough and if it is in proper working order. Furthermore, if you don’t have a backup battery for the pump, we can install it for you, because big storms often take out the power necessary to run your pump.

Basement plumbing repairs, installation and replacement

If you’ve ever experienced a plumbing problem in the basement you know repairs can get messy, especially if you live in a low-lying area where flooding seems to be a constant concern.

Basement Sink Repairs

From all the plumbing that goes into a laundry room or basement bathroom to water heaters and sump pumps, you need a trusted professional to assist you in repairs, installation and replacement of any plumbing system.

Your plumber should be able to test your pipes to ensure there are no blockages and perform services like rodding and jet-rodding to clean them out. All the wastewater in a home is ejected through the basement pipes, and over time there will be a build-up of grease and debris that will eventually lead to blockage.
