|In response to Re: Sewage backup in basement|
: I have an old house (1920s) where the basement tends to flood with sewage from the sewar system.
: I don't know much about plumbing all I can tell you is that there is hole near the main drain where the
: sewage seems to come out of. I found the cap for this hole and tried to seal it. However, the pressure
: from the backup seems to just knock it off again. I should point out that we have a toilet in the
: basement as well. I point this out bacause the plumbers we've had come over to look at the problem
: keep telling us that if they plug the main drain, then the backup will come through the toilet. All
: I want to know is if there is some remedy for this situation. I find it hard to believe that there is nothing
: to do. Is the City responsible for this? Can I ask them to help pay for a fix?
