Floor Drain Backing Up?

A floor drain back up may also be brought on by cooking grease, rags, or bits of solid debris which were flushed down a family drain.

How To Clean After A Floor Drain Backing Up

Cleaning up after a drain backup overflow is crucial, as drain pipes move wastewater away from your house. This water might be in the kitchen sink, tub, basin, or toilet. Water which sits in the pipes until it overflows comprises bacteria which might be bad for your health.

Tips To Keep Your Floor Drain Clean

  • Avoid placing inappropriate items to your plumbing system via drains or toilets.
  • Ensure downspouts stretch at least 1.8 metres (6 ft ) from your cellar wall. Furthermore, make sure the water doesn’t drain toward your neighbor’s basement walls. It must drain away from your home toward the road, back yard, or rear lane.

During the recent heavy rains my basement, dry for three years, started getting wet around the entrance to my basement and leaking under the basement door. I phoned Andrew at Aqua tech, and he came over, assessed the situation, explained the appropriate work needed to correct the problem.

It was all internal, we could break up the concrete floor in the entrance way, install weeping tile, and drainage pipe, and drain it all into a sump pump. He also installed interior waterproof membrane.

The team that executed the work, lead by Terry, was great and completed everything in one day. A warranty for the work was provided and i feel confident that if I have any further issues a quick call to Andrew will get action. All in all, a very positive experience.
-MT, Toronto ★★★★★

We had a number of leaks in our cold room, so bad that water literally ran through and down the drain whenever it rained. I called 4 companies for quotes. I was very happy with two of the companies, but in the end decided to go with Aquatech. I am very glad that I did.

Eugene provided me with three options, all of which would have worked, and I decided on one of them.

They went to work almost immediately, and completed the work twice as fast as I would have thought possible. The guys (Terry and Andrew) were very quick, neat, organized, and kept me informed every step of the way. It has been an absolute pleasure doing business with them.
-Kevin, Toronto ★★★★★

It's always daunting to find a reliable company to help you understand what a big and expensive job entails and then to do it right. Our experience working with Andrew and his team was excellent.

Very responsive, patiently explained every aspect of the job and Igor, Slava and the crew were professional, courteous and completed the job with such care, as if it was their own home.

A family run business that doesn't cut corners, is honest with their customers and treats their employees well. It shows in the workmanship!
