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.

Tim was incredibly responsive and on time. He discovered a problem that even my home inspector didn’t find that was the leading cause of water in my crawlspace. He was able to fix it immediately and it saved me a giant amount of work down the road. Very happy with his work and his prices were reasonable and fair. I will absolutely hire him again, highly recommend!

Flood control systems
All homes built after 1972 have separate sump pumps for the foundation drainage system as well as overhead sewage systems. A separate foundation drainage system helps keep the groundwater collected by the footing drains from entering the sanitary sewer systems during a rain storm. Flood controls, Backwater valves and Overhead sewer systems prevent sewer backups into the basement should the village sewer mains become overloaded or blocked. The older sewer systems can be upgraded to prevent sanitary sewer backups into the basement. Flood control systems are well worth it in the long run, As long as it’s maintenance yearly along with your sewer system. Flood controls allow you to use your system normally A flood control system is installed in your yard, depending on where your sewer system is located, that has a series of valves in it, along with a sump pit and an injector pump. If the city sewer systems back up, the valve will shut and any fixtures inside go into the sump pit and are pumped in front of the valves so you can use your inside the house as if the sewer system was running like normal.

Backwater valves to prevent sewer backflow
Backwater valves are easier and cheaper to install but have some limitations. 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. If the seepage tile or footing drains 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.
Some maintenance is required to keep the protection of your basement. 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 Drains Inc today at (847)485-0031 for your FREE estimate and more information about backwater valve systems.
