If you’ve been to places with unpleasant weather conditions like I have, you KNOW what challenges come with the weather. There can be extreme heat, relentless raining on most days (Cue: London), and most importantly: Sudden flooding of the house due to poor drainage systems.
Believe me, a soaked and flooded basement is just the start of your problems. If the water isn’t moved, it can damage the flooring of your house.
Leave it for too long and the furniture will get damaged as well. Poor drainage, damage to your water discharge, and water blockade can turn your house into an island (pun intended).
The easiest way to eradicate the problem is to dig a sump pit in the basement and install a pump that discharges the water away from your house at a safe distance. These pumps are known as “Sump Pumps.” These pumps are handy as none of us want to spend the weekend mopping up a pool of water.
I’ll be discussing the topic in this article. I’ll be helping you guys with a list of some of the quietest sump pumps around. After all, no one likes too much noise to disturb the harmony of their houses while removing a water poodle down at the basement.
While I’m at it, I’ll be throwing in a buying guide in the article as well. This is to help you find your own machine if you’re not satisfied with my choices. But I bet you will be.Continue reading
It is no doubt that computers are used nearly everywhere nowadays. And it goes without saying that a keyboard must accompany a computer for it to function fully.
Although most computers come with a standard keyboard, most of these are not necessarily the best. Keyboards can be quite noisy making it difficult for you to work in the company of others.
A few years ago, I was living with a couple of friends while trying to cut costs. I am a night bird and this meant that I was almost always using my computer while everyone else was asleep. While this did not pose a problem, my keyboard at the time was quite loud. This meant that my friends, who were all light sleepers, could hardly sleep unless I was done using the computer.
I did not even know silent or quiet keyboards existed until one of them mentioned it. Of course, I still wanted to use the computer at night but not at the expense of their sleep. So I decided to give it a try.Continue reading

These functions include; heating up food, baking small cakes, cooking light dishes, defrosting meat, boiling water, etc. I cannot possibly exhaust the uses of a microwave.

Tower fans are great at cooling large open-air spaces, as compared to air conditioners. They work in a simple and straightforward manner by moving the air around a room in order to create a wind-like effect.
Using a tower fan will definitely make you feel cooler, especially during summer. They provide you with the same kind of breeze you would experience if you were to go out in nature on a windy day.
What fans do in general is to cool you, instead of cooling the environment, and the air circulates around the room decreasing the temperature, which is not visible with the naked eye unless you use a thermometer. For this reason, they are appliances that every household should have.
If you are like me, and the temperatures skyrocket especially in summer, nothing gives me more joy than spending my days enjoying a good book while the fan gets rid of all that hot air. Of course, an ice-cold drink is never far away from me.
Now, I have tried many different types of fans, and for years I used the standing fans which I would keep very close to me, but, they were way too noisy, plus, I would almost always end up with a bad cold. I decided to try out the tower fans, and after a long search, I found what I needed. I love it because it keeps me extremely cool, is very quiet, and I never have a runny nose afterward.
For this reason, I decided to do a review of some of the best quiet tower fans in the market today, so you can also be enlightened. I hope you will love this review.Continue reading
