Flood Hazard in Your Basement From Water or Sewer Backup

As you probably heard on the news a heavy storm is approaching that will bring a lot of water to our area.  We want to notify our clients that a clean water system and drain pipes are very important to maintain in order to flush the water away from your property to the main sewer and also in order to prevent sewer backup which will bring the water from the street and the sewer system into your house, which can cause damage to your house infrastructure and appliances.

There are some sewer clogged  prevention products that can help eliminate sewer backup and water backup problems, which is generally a good thing to have but may sometimes require installation and preparation and is not something you can do as an emergency plumbing service.  Sewer backup or water backup may not be covered by your homeowners policy, it may be a good idea to check this with your insurance agent before the storm arrives, especially if your house is near a river or lake or a flood zone.

Feel free to contact us with any questions or if you need any help.  We provide 24/7 plumbing service for most parts of New Jersey.
