Preventing Sewer Backflow into Your Basement

Preventing Sewer Backflow into Your Basement

We’ve talked about the headaches and hassles that can arise from having rain water or excess ground water back up into your basement. What could be worse than that? How about having your sanitary sewer lines backing up instead?

Aside from heavy rains, there are other potential causes of sewer backflow into your basement. These include broken sewer lines, or lines having become plugged with tree roots, grease, or other waste.
