Floor Drain Repairs
There are signs that your sewer is beginning to block up. These are indicators to watch for and actions to take to prevent a messy situation. Your floor drain is your first warning.
If you notice water backing up from your floor drain when doing laundry or after a heavy rain, you need to be concerned.
The water will often drain away slowly and people will think the problem is solved. The reality is that the problem did not go away. It’s an indication that the line is getting partially blocked. Under a heavy load it cannot handle a large amount of water.
When there is a heavy rain, and a backup occurs in a newer home, it usually shows up during laundry. In older homes that do not have a sump pump, the weeping tile is more likely to be tied into the drain. In a heavy rain the water is trying to go down the sewer which is partially blocked, so then it backs up.
