Clogged Pump & Failing Valve – Diagnosing the Problem

Clogged Pump in Oakland, NJ

It is very common for our plumbers to come into a job thinking there is one problem and having to pivot our thinking to solve the real issue. That is what happened to a homeowner in Oakland, NJ. We went to the house to troubleshoot a sewage ejector pump, but actually found out that the pump was burnt out due to too much toilet paper being flushed down the toilet. We installed a new pump, tested it, & everything worked.

Due to the city’s hard water, the valve failed. The water heaterwas completely drained and replaced. To prevent this from occurring, Hawthorne Mechanical Contractors recommends either installing a water softener or having us come out once a year to flush out your water heater to increase its’ lifespan.
