Do you ever think about whether your basement is up to all of the necessary codes and structural necessities? For most, if not all, homeowners, the answer to this is no. However, if your basement begins to fill with water, you’ll certainly wish you had spent more time concerning yourself with it. Before this happens, it’s crucial to discover whether your basement runs the risk of flooding.
Basement flooding typically originates from one of four sources:
#1 Surface water running down foundation walls.
#2 Groundwater in water-saturated soils being pushed into the basement by hydrostatic pressure.
#3 Sanitary sewer water from a combined municipal storm/sanitary sewer system backing up into the home’s drain system, causing sewer water to come up through sink drains and floor drains on lower levels.
#4 Storm sewer water from the municipal storm sewer system backing up into the home’s existing perimeter foundation drain and leaking into the basement. This can only occur if the perimeter foundation drain system is connected to the municipal sewer system, however.
