Chicago Plumbing Overhead Sewer Services
Providing Protection against Flooding during Heavy Rainfall
Many older Chicago homes are at increased risk for basement flooding without even realizing it. Whether your area uses a combined sewer system or separate storm sewer, heavy rains can sometimes exceed the sewer’s capacity and cause back-up. Since water seeks the lowest point, this means it often flows downward into residential basements, leading to increased risk of flooding and property damage.
Overhead sewer systems have become commonplace in modern homes to protect against this potential back-up disaster. By diverting your home’s plumbing to a new sewer line above the level of the area’s sewers, even homes with basement fixtures will be protected against flooding. If you have a home that still uses a gravity-based system, John Baethke & Son Plumbing is the Chicago plumber to count on for converting to an overhead sewer.
What You Get When You Work With Us
Our Chicago plumbing services will install everything that is needed for an overhead sewer system.
- Sanitary pit and ejector pump: For homes with basement-level plumbing, these will pump waste discharge up above flood level for disposal.
- Sump pump: This will handle ground water while keeping the water table level low to reduce flooding.
- Sewer service line: We will add a new line running along the basement ceiling for all sewage to drain to.
Our licensed and vetted technicians will handle every step of the process, from initial evaluation to final testing. Furthermore, they will do it promptly on a schedule that fits you for minimal disruption of everyday life.
