    review rating 5  Highly recommend this company. I called them to get a septic system inspected. Tim returned my call the same day and actually came out the following day. Great service and very honest. Will definitely use this company next time we need the system inspected.

    review rating 5  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.

    review rating 5  Drains Inc is the company to use! Tim and his crew are great.. Fast, honest, fairly priced and they get the job done quickly. I'd highly recommend anyone needing a drain cleaned to give these guys a call! I've used them twice and I'm a happy customer!

    review rating 5  Drains Inc. is your answer. Period.

    I first called one of the Rooter businesses and completely regret it. The guy was either inexperienced or an idiot. He charged me $300 and left me hanging.

    Tim (owner) and Adam (apprentice) came out and kicked butt. My house is a relatively new purchase. We found out my line not only runs through the neighbor's yard, it runs under their breezeway and into their front yard. And the house is for sale and vacant. Tim took control, tracked down the owner, got permission to dig in their yard not once, but twice, and got the job done. Tim was making calls on his own time to help get the project done in as soon as possible and with as little inconvenience to me as possible. Communication was great throughout.

    Seriously, if you are looking for a plumber that will go the extra mile, get the job done right, and someone you can flat out trust, it's Drains Inc. Never once did I feel that I was being taken advantage of or that the job was being mishandled. Tim is a small businessman that cares about his work and his customers. Give Drains Inc. a try and you'll want to leave them a great review, too.

Flood controls

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. Give Drains Inc a call today at (847)485-0031 for your FREE estimate and more information about flood control systems for your home or business. With over 30 years of experience Drains Inc has the expertise you need to handle all your sewer and drain problems.

Backwater valves

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.

Regular maintenance

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.

Overhead sewers

Modern overhead sewer systems

Converting your old sewer systems upgrades your system to modern standards and offers the best protection against backups. At a much higher elevation than your basement floor your floor drains or facilities in your basement goes to a separate ejector pit that pumps it out of the house.

Modern drainage

The modern new homes are built so that they will never flood during any type of storm. With modern, overhead sewer drainage, you can continue to use your inside facilities during a storm. The footing drains will need to be separated out to a separate sump pit unless they are already.
