We Love What We Do A Flood Control Service Like No Other

Flood Control in Skokie

Fast, Efficient Water Mitigation Services

Floods, even relatively small ones, can be devastating. And not all insurance policies cover water damage from floods. You could be stuck paying to fix caved-in ceilings, damaged furniture, or fried electronics. Most people don’t realize that flood waters are often contaminated with raw sewage. This poses a unique risk by exposing your home or business to high levels of bacteria.

Between water damage and contamination risks, floods can wreak havoc on your property. That’s why it’s important to contact Aqua Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Services for an emergency plumbing service to have flood control measures in place for when water levels rise. These measures ensure that raw sewage and high water levels don’t ruin your home or business. After being in the flood control business for many years, we’ve narrowed down our flood control measures to two options. One of our flood control service technicians can talk about what your best option is.

Your Flood Control Options

The first option for flood control involves us excavating to the sewer, removing existing sewer pipes, and installing two backwater valves and an overflow tee. The overflow tee then feeds into an ejector pump, which then processes the raw sewage.

All this equipment is then encased and bolted down in a 48” pre-cast concrete manhole. When the sewer does back up, the valves close. With this system, you can run water as long as you have power, and you won’t have to worry about the health hazards associated with raw sewage

The second option is an overhead sewer system. An overhead sewer system reroutes your existing sewer so raw sewage leaves the building from below the first story. Sewage from your basement is rerouted to an ejector pump. This means you don’t have to rely on city sewers during flooding which allows you to use your sewer whenever you need it.

Both methods sound complicated, but we’re here to make it simple. Aqua Plumbing, Heating & Cooling Services has professional technicians trained to handle all the work you need in order to ensure flood control on your property.
