Backwater Valves & Backflow Prevention

You rely on fresh water coming out of the faucets in your house and other distribution lines (to your own laundry machines, dishwashers, etc.) for many daily tasks. The probability of losing fresh water provides an unpleasant thought. Did you know that your water can be cross contaminated? Backflow valves provide that from happening. Although it is an inexpensive fix you definetly want to have a professional plumber checking your backflow system.

Most houses are equipped with a system that prevents wastewater in the sewage system backing up into the new water source. Backflow prevention devices must get routine testing from accredited plumbers to be certain that they’re working properly and not at risk of failing. You’ll want the aid of a certified professional plumber to fix or install a backflow preventer if necessary.

Battery Backup Sump Pump Protection

Ensure your house is guarded with a trusted battery backup machine from the professionals at KBI Plumbing we provide two kinds of battery backup systems for our clients. The first is a battery powered system to operate your main sump pump whenever you don’t require a pump. Our battery system may operate for up to two weeks depending on how far it runs, the dimensions of the sump pump, and also the elevation of release. Countless basements have flooded because of a power outage.

Our second kind is a battery backup sump pump. It’s a battery operated backup that is set up next to your primary pump.

Basement Flooding Control Systems

KBI Plumbing’s flood control experts can help you understand all of your options and determine which option is best for you. There are several different types of flood control systems:

  • Lift Station Pumping System
  • Overhead Sewer Flood Control System
  • Check Valve
  • Drainage Tile System

Basements flood for multiple reasons perhaps it’s a broken sump pump, maybe you have the wrong size of sump pump or your sewer line may have an issue. We get torrential downpours along with snowmelt, and flooding rivers when this happens, the city sewer can’t handle this amount of water. Our sewers flood over capacity and you as the homeowner can’t prevent rainwater backing up in your home or basement.

The older sewer systems can be upgraded to prevent sanitary sewer backups into the basement. Flood control systems are well worth it in the long run, As long as it’s maintenance yearly along with your sewer system.

Sewer & Drain Line Most Common Problems

No homeowner wants to hear you have a sewer line problem. Sewer Line issues can be expensive and no homeowner wants their perfect landscaped yard to be dug up. As a homeowner you should always get three estimates from different plumbers. Not every sewer line issue requires a complete sewer line overhaul. At KBI Plumbing Sewer & Drain we want you to know the warning signs that you may have a sewer line problem. Here are some of the warning signs that your sewer is having issues:

  • Basement or yard has a smell.
  • Water Bill has increased. ( This usually is when we get the call)
  • Drain and Sewer Lines are clogging regularly
  • Toilets backing up
  • Your grass is greener in sections of the yard and mushy. (Typical for Septic as well)
  • Toilet is making gurgling sounds.

Major reason why Sewer lines back up or have issues.

Sewer Line Corrosion and Tree Roots are the major reason behind Sewer lines backing up and hindrance. When a tree root is involved we can usually see the blockage with our televised camera. Based on the damage we typically can just cut through the tree root and solve your problem. Sewer Line Corrosion – is the presence of hydrogen sulfide gas in the sewer. This is the primary cause of pipe corrosion. This corrosion is also known as “crown corrosion”. When sewage pipe material comes into contact with sulfuric acid, the pipe material corrodes, ultimately causing failure. Bacteria corrode sewer pipes from the inside. If you suspect you may have Tree roots or Sewer Line Corrosion act fast and give us a call. The problem is only going to get worse. We will use our video camera to inspect and show you exactly what and where the problem is.

Review of KBI Plumbing

Keith Jr and his partner were terrific. We had a drainage issue in our pond and Keith was willing to get waist deep in cold, wintery water to solve the problem. Quick to return my initial phone call and quick to be on site. Highly recommend.
