Sewer Lateral Backflow Prevention

Homeowners that have experienced or are concerned about sewage backing up in their basement may want to consider installing a Backflow Preventer on their sewer lateral.  These devices would be most effective in combined sewer areas or in separate sanitary sewer areas where a basement has sewer service.  Also, homeowners that have experienced sewer backups in the past are encouraged to consider this as a potential solution to preventing future sewer backups or flooded basements.
