Well it can and does happen!
This can be controlled with a Mainline Backwater Valve. Due to any number of circumstances, the sewer system in your neighbourhood can be either blocked or over taxed and can cause sewage to back up into your basement. This is especially frequent during heavy rainfalls and thunderstorms. Canada’s Pro Plumbing will install a Mainline Backwater Valve on your sewer line to prevent this sudden back surge of sewer water from entering your home.
The Mainline Backwater Valve is specifically designed to detect when a back surge is occurring and allows an internal valve to close. Stopping the water from entering your basement through floor drains, shower drains and toilets.
After the water surge has subsided and all sewers are flowing freely again, the valve then automatically opens, allowing your sewer system to function as before.
