Flood Control A Flood Control System is used to prevent water from the city sewer from backing up into your basement. The system has a gate which allows water to flow from your house to the city sewer, but the gate closes if any back pressure from the city sewer flows towards your house. Water from the city sewer will never be able to pass through the gate, but you will still be able to use the water in your house as it will flow into a pump pit and be pumped on the other side of the closed gate. The gate will reopen as soon and the city sewer lowers back to its normal level.
Overhead Sewer Overhead Sewer Systems are also used to prevent water from backing up into basement. All the drains in the basement flow to a pump pit. The water and waste is pumped from the pit to the overhead sewer. The overhead sewer pipe is set at a height that will prevent the city sewer from backing up into the basement.
Seepage Water seepage and cracks in the foundation are also a common issue many homeowners have in their basements. We offer drain tile solutions for ground water and seepage. Madden Sewer also has the proper equipment and material to properly repair foundation cracks.
