Basement flooding is typically caused by heavy rains, melting snow or damaged pipes. But the most damaging and annoying reason for basement flooding is sewer backup. This happens when sewage from sewer lines, for some reason, can’t flow naturally into the sewer and begin to flow back or back up into your house. Sewer water is dirty, foul-smelling and teeming with all sorts of harmful microorganisms. Sewer backups will not only damage your property but also put to risk your health and your family’s safety.blocked-sewer-basement-flood-1

Cyclone Valves play a crucial role in protecting your basement from flooding. Cyclone Valve allows any excess water to be blocked off so there is minimum damage. The backwater problem has become so common that many cities and suburbs offer a Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program. This program will help citizens protect their families and property from flood damage.
