    When I bought this house I had no idea that it sits on a very high water table. My sump pump can run almost every ten minutes in the spring and fall even though my neighbours' rarely seem to discharge.

    Hello smart plumbers, Due to very cold weather, along with a relatively short vent stack too close to the apex of our 12/12 roof, we have a severely frozen vent pipe. Ugh. My husband tried today to rope up and get on the roof to poor some water down it and add an extender with a 180 bend to...
