Often basement backups are caused by City sewer systems being interconnected. Some houses have downspouts, foundation drains, and/or the sump pump connected to the City’s sanitary sewer. During heavy rains, storm water enters the sanitary sewers overloading the main lines and contributing to backups in houses connected to that line.
Basement backups can also be caused by events not related to rain water. According to several reports, the most common items removed by plumbers from drain lines are sanitary napkins, Q-tips, hair, grease, and foods. These along with other items block drain lines causing the waste water to come back up and resurface at the lowest drain point.

After having the sewer back up last year, we were not willing to live that nightmare again. Public plumbing put in a back flow valve and sump pump. All the staff were very professional. They showed up in a timely manner. I highly recommend this company.

Walter and his team originally replaced all the clay sewage lines in my1960s bungalow. He then changed out our old copper pipes to new Pex with individual Runs to each device. During last summer our house was hit by the sewage backup. Once it was cleaned up Walter came in to install a sump pump and back flow valve. I am a very picky person and his team did everything I was looking for and more. My basement is completely finish with expensive Italian Porcelain. So he installed the backflow value on the outside of the house. It also makes it easier to clean. It was a great deal more work than an inside one but his team was still able to dig 8 feet down update everything and replace within 2 days. We are so happy with the piece of mind that the next time the city fails we should be okay thanks to Public Plumbing. We will likely ask Walter and his team to water proof the outside walls of our basement as a final precaution. Again thanks for your help.
