Tim and his fellow plumber made short work of my sewer full of roots. Tim was very kind and extremely helpful with my distress .

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 awesome. Don’t call anyone else. Service was explained very well, done with professionalism, quickly and left everything very clean. I would definitely recommend this company.

Tim was very knowledgeable about drainage issues. He was professional and prompt. He called back later that day just to make sure we were satisfied with the work. Would highly recommend for any plumbing/drainage issues.

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.
