I can not say enough about this company! My window well had flooded and I called Drains Inc. based on their reviews and they did not disappoint. Tim came out to my house and looked at the problem and it ended up not being as big of an issue as we thought it was going to be. He walked me through what we could do to solve the problem in the future. It was very refreshing to deal with someone who could have very easily taken advantage of the situation and charged an astronomical amount of money and they didn’t. Tim even took the time to talk me through some other questions I had regarding my sub-pump. I will definitely call them again if the need arises.

I called this company going through the list from my Yelp search. I ended up committing to an appointment with another sewer line rodding/camera plumbing service company in the midst of those phone calls. However, Drains Inc (Tim) called me back about an hour after those calls and despite mentioning that I booked an appointment with someone else, he did not rush to hang up and go about his day. Tim spoke to me for 15 minutes and asked about my issue and gave me some really great advice to save me money. That kind of ethics and integrity is rare these days and he really didn't have to. I am keeping my appointment with the other plumber to be respectful to my commitment to the next day appointment for basic rodding, but I am definitely calling Drains Inc the next time something in my money pit of a house decides to go wrong. He hauls everything in his van saving you time and money for sewer line issues, which are almost always time sensitive (so no need to wait for a rodder or a camera to be borrowed or rented). On top of that he is a stand up guy with fair pricing, so win win. Drains Inc. Saved to contacts.

Tim is so helpful and kind. He talked me though the issue and gave advice. He even checked in with me later to make sure everything was going well. He goes above and beyond!

Someone flushed a pack of baby wipes down the toilet and it was causing major issues. He was able to clear it quickly and for a reasonable fee.

Backwater valves to prevent sewer backflow

Flood control systems

Backwater valves are generally easier and cheaper to install but they have some limitations. For one, you cannot use any of the facilities in your home while it is in the closed position. And if you have seepage tiles or foundation drains that are tied into the sanitary sewer service, your basement may still flood once the valves close as the footing drains or seepage tile water will be trapped and could back up.

Backwater valves

prevent sewer backflow

If so the footing drains or seepage tile will need to be separated out to a new sump pump pit. If you have a basement with no sump pump pit, assume that you have the footing drains or seepage tiles tied directly into your sewer service. Contact us today for more information.

Regular maintenance for optimal preparedness

Some maintenance is required to keep the protection measure in operation. If a backwater valve is recommended to prevent sewer backups, you should realize that regular maintenance is needed to keep the improvement working as intended. Inspection and cleaning of a backwater valve system is recommended once a year. Call the trusted professionals at Drains Inc. today at 847-485-0031 for more information about backwater valve systems and to request your FREE estimate.
