If Your New Home Has Cellar Learn About Sump Pumps If you plan to buy a new house in the next few years, it may pay you to learn about sump pumps. A recent survey of builders indicate] that more than 60 per cent of the houses to be built in the next five yftu-s will have basements. This can mean un expected problems for the un prepared. One of these problems is flood ing. Excess water can get into even the most soundly construct ed homes, the Bureau points out It comes from flash flood*, broken water mains, seepage during heavy rains and even from water- using appliances. Many new homes are built with overhead sewers. This means that the floor of the basement is below the leve! sf the sewer and that excess water cannot be drained from the basement floor ay gravity. If excess water cannot be drained by gravity to a sewer or other low point, cosily property damage and inconvenience can result. This is especially true when heating plants and electrical appliances are installed there. But whatever the source of the flooding water, says the Bureau, an experienced plumbing con- tactor can provide the proper sump pump drainage system to eliminate the problem. The contractor will construct a pit called a sump and install a ]mnp for automatically discharg- ng (he excess water into sewer, dry well or into a drain away from the house. Any reliable plumbing contractor can explain the difference in pumps and systems and the way they work for the homeowner's benefit.

The most common cause of basement flooding is heavy rainfall forcing water to back up through the drains in the floor of the basement. Since raw sewage is sometimes carried with the water, the homeowner faces an additional health hazard, The three QTOPM WINDOWS OlUnm and DOORS AT FACTORY PRICES PRE-SEASON SALE!

The automatic electric sump 3ump or cellar drainer which seeps rain water from reaching the floor level of the basement 2. The automatic back-water valve which closes when the sew- r backs up. 3. The overhead sewer which carries waste from laundry drains and other water connec- ;ions from the house at a higher .evel than the basement. It is important to remember ;hat each of these dovices is designed to serve a suecial situation. What will work in one house will not necessarily be best n another because the conditions may be different. Homeowners with basement drainage problems are advised to consult an experienced plumbing contractor, who will survey the situation and recommend exactly the system that car. be depended on to Keep your ousement dry.

Three Types of Water Controls for Showers There are three types of water controls for shower. Most desirable is the thermos tatically conlrolled mixing valve which provides water at any de sired temperature and protects against danger from violent flue tualions in waler pressure. A reg ular mixing valve works on the same principle as the single-lever faucet, and tempers water. Final ly there is the regular two-valve system where the bather tempers the water himself. Half of All Plumbing Fixtures Sold White About half of all plumbing fix- Inrcs sold across the nation arc white. The trend Is clear on colors ol plumbing fixtures, the Bureau points out. Pink is the undis puled leader in popularity, as has been the case for several years Next most popular is tan. Green, yellow and blue are next in line. Gray and dark colors are chosen very infrequently by new home and modernization buyers. Should Be Thinned Very often label instructions recommend that the first coal of varnish applied over bare •wood should be thinned with min eral spirits or turpentine. Here's he way to do it: slowly add the dinner and stir very gently in one direction only to prevent the 'ormation of bubbles. Varnish applied as a topcoat should not be stirred or shaken at all, warns he National Paint, Varnish and Lacquer Assn. 'Holden Sis.
