    5 star review  So glad I found this company to assess our situation. Tim is a true professional who knows his craft and isn’t out to take advantage of customers.

    5 star review  I had Drains Inc. perform two projects. The first was to replace a old clay sewer line from the house to the septic tank that had broken. The second was to hydro plug a septic line and abandon a pit that was a remnant of a old 1950s era septic system. Both jobs were done quickly and at a reasonable price. Tim the owner is very responsive, & knowledgeable. When a small issue arose from some concrete settling while curing Tim took care of it as soon as the weather allowed. This speaks to his desire to make sure his clients are satisfied with the quality of work. I would highly recommend his services.

    5 star review  Good plumbers are hard to find, Tim was recommended another plumber who was out of town. Tim gave us an estimate over the phone, every thing was done right the first time. They arrived on time, rodded the mainline to the street, cleared out all the roots, returned a full flow, cleaned up, gave us a 6 month guarantee and didn't charge us a penny more than the quoted price. Almost all of the plumbers we get try to get us to replace our pipe for thousands of dollars claiming its broken, good plumbers just do their job without any hassles.

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.
