Potential causes of basement flooding in Media, PA

1.) Storm sewer water from the municipal storm sewer system backing up into the home’s existing perimeter foundation drain and leaking into the basement. It is important to note that this can only occur if the perimeter foundation drain system is connected to the municipal sewer system.

2.) 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.

3.) Surface water running down foundation walls.

4.) Groundwater in water-saturated soils being pushed into the basement by hydrostatic pressure.
