On the job: Sewer repair in downtown Indianapolis

A sewer system connected to an older property in Indianapolis was overwhelmed by flooding. Lance and the team at L.D. Smith Plumbing solved this issue by installing a   backwater valve to manage water flow. Lance explains the process in the video above.

Backwater valves are a common solution to prevent water from flowing toward your property. Without it, older homes, in particular, could experience significant sewer backup problems. We see this problem frequently in older properties near downtown Indianapolis. With proper maintenance, a backwater valve should last at least for years. Although this is a preventative measure for homes with overwhelmed sewer systems, it’s still important to maintain proper habits inside the home to reduce clogging the system.
