Replacing Your Furnace And Air Conditioner

November 4, 2010

When Should A Furnace Or Air Conditioner Be Replaced?

Is it time to replace your furnace and/or air conditioner?  A good rule of thumb is the 20-year mark for replacing a furnace and/or air conditioner.  In the White Bear Lake and surrounding areas furnaces and air conditioners each get their fair share of wear and tear.  Due to this type of weather the efficiency of a furnace and air conditioner will generally start to drop after 12 years.

Types Of Septic Systems

October 4, 2010

Minnesota Septic Systems

What type of septic system do you have?  At Roger Vadnais Plumbing, Heating, and Drain we service many types of septic systems around the White Bear Lake, Mn area including: Gravity, Trenches, Seepage beds, At-grade, and mound systems.

In-Ground Septic Systems

In-ground septic systems include: Gravity, trenches, and seepage beds.  Today, there  are two ways for conveying septic tank effluent by gravity: Trenches and seepage beds.  A trench septic system is generally a thin and long bed that allows effluent from the septic to absorb into the ground.  Seepage beds are anywhere from 3 feet to 25 feet wide.  Seepage systems also allow the effluent from the septic tank to absorb into the ground. 

Above-Ground Septic Systems

Above ground septic systems consist of a septic tank, pump tank, and a distribution system or bed.  The two types of Above-ground septic systems are At-grade and mound systems.  The primary difference between the two septic systems is that the At-grade pumps the effluent into a distribution system and the mound pumps the effluent into a bed.

Replacing A Well Pump

September 9, 2010

What Is Needed In Order To Replace A Well Pump?

Is the well water pump malfunctioning or do you have no water?  In either case, there is a problem with the well water pump, pressure tank, or controls.  If it’s determined that the problem is in the well water pump itself and not in the pressure tank or controls then the pump will have to be replaced or serviced.  In order to pull and remove a submersible well water pump, a well pump rig or a chain host tripod are the two ideal means of removing the pump from a well.  If neither of these methods are available it is possible to remove the water well pump by hand or pipe wrench.  Although it’s possible to remove the well pump this way, it’s not recommended.

At Roger Vadnais Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning we have technicians that specialize in well pumps, pressure tanks and well water pump controls.  In order to schedule an appointment contact us at (651) 429-3303 or visit us online at www.rogervadnais.com

Why Doesn’t The Kitchen Sink Disposal Work?

August 11, 2010

Causes For Food Disposals To Not Work

Is the kitchen sink food disposal humming or not turning on at all?  In most cases failure of disposals can be caused by age, improper electrical supply or draw,  and improper materials lodged in the grinding chamber. 

Possible Solutions

If the disposal is humming and the grinding chamber isn’t working then there is most likely something from the kitchen sink that became stuck in the grinding chamber.  Make sure the electrical is either unplugged and/or turned off at the breaker.  If you are unsure of the electrical components, contact a licenced plumber to fix the problem.  After turning off the electricity to the kitchen sink food disposal, take a light and look in the grinding chamber.  Once the object is found, remove it. 

Another problem associated with the food disposal not working is improper voltage draw.  If the disposal is over-working the internal breaker may trip.  If this happens, there is a red button on the bottom of the disposal that will need to be pushed in order to re-gain electricity to the disposal.
