Overhead Sewer System DuPage County – Armbrust Plumbing & Heating Solutions – Call 630547-7500
An overhead sewer system is another form of flood control. With installation of an overhead system, residential wastewater from above-grade (typically from a home’s main floor and higher floors) drains into the municipal sewer mainline by gravity. All of the wastewater from below-grade (which is usually from the plumbing fixtures in the basement) drain to a basin. From there, it discharges via a pump into a gravity overhead system line. Additionally, the basin collects some groundwater, which then pumps into a gravity overhead sewer system line too.
This type of plumbing system design alters a home’s original drain system. The original lowest-point drain – which is typically a floor drain in the basement – is raised up to a higher point. Usually to a bathtub drain on the first floor.
Outside the home, the original sewer line connection to the municipal sewage main is shut off. For rodding-out purposes, a sewage clean-out is also installed so the basement remains dry in the event of sewer backup from the municipal line. Technically, an Overhead Sewer System DuPage Count is the most dependable method of flood control.
However, it cannot necessarily be installed in all types of houses. It is a sewer system that is designed “custom” for each home in which it’s installed. Without a doubt, it can be a complex endeavor. This type of system is a very good option to install when, for instance, a home’s basement walls aren’t complete yet. New construction homes are a good candidate for an Overhead Sewer System DuPage County.
Protect Your Basement Against Flood Risk with an Overhead Sewer System DuPage County
Converting the plumbing components in your residential basement to an overhead sewer system can protect it from backflows that can result in expensive water damage. Basically, installation of an overhead system involves re-plumbing the system in basement and directing it to an ejector pit. It’s the role of the ejector pit to lift the sewage waste overhead and then down to approximately the height of the basement walls. From that point, it exits the foundation walls to the outside of the home. Once it is outside, the line reconnects to the home’s lateral line and on to the municipal sanitary sewer.
In the event that the municipal sanitary sewage line were to back up, the home remains protected because the sewage is held in the lateral line outside of it.
This effective option offers the best level of flood damage protection.

-Toilet clogs and backups. Few plumbing problems are quite as inconvenient as a clogged toilet. If you have a toilet in your home that needs plunging frequently there is probably something obstructing the trap or drainpipe. It could even be an indicator of a larger problem farther in the sewer line.
-Toilet keeps running. If you frequently hear running water in your toilet tank for lengthy periods of time after you flush it, it’s probably a sign of a leak. This indicates that water is moving down through the toilet’s overflow tube and simply going to waste. The problem could be due to a pipe corrosion, flush valve assemblage or a worn flapper valve. Jiggling the handle won’t solve the problem! Call the plumbing experts at 630-547-7500 for fast and affordable service.
-Toilet replacement. Any toilet that was manufactured prior to 1994 is most likely not operating as efficiently as it could be and is probably inflating your water bills. Most older model toilets use 3.5 gallons per flush, while newer efficient models require just about half that amount with the same degree of flushing force. Armbrust Plumbing & Heating Solutions can install an efficient new toilet that saves on both water consumption and water bills!
There are many new eco-friendly toilet models available that use less water than the old toilet you may still have in your home.

Water Heater Repair and Installation
Among all of the major plumbing appliances in most residences, the water heater is without a doubt one of the most important. As it starts to get older and gradually become less efficient – or stop working suddenly – a faulty water heater can be cause a lot of disruption to your household routine. In the event your home’s water heater is ready for replacement or needs repairs, call 630-547-7500.

Here’s a brief summary of the most common varieties of water heaters:
Conventional water heater units contain water and are available in a wide selection of sizes. They require electricity or gas to sustain the water temperature until the faucet switches on and warm water moves through the pipes in your home.
A tankless water heater is ordinarily viewed as more cost efficient since they heat up water on an in-demand basis. After the tap switches on, the tankless unit activates and supplies reliably warm water. A hybrid water heater is a combination of a heat pump and a storage tank. It withdraws heat from the air and utilizes it to heat up the water. If your home or business needs a new water heater, call us at 630-547-7500 and get started with Armbrust Plumbing & Heating Solutions.
-Installations of new appliances. Water heaters, furnaces, sump pumps, air conditioners, sinks, toilets, showers and more – we can recommend best options and install new products, fixtures, and appliances for your residence or commercial building.
-Frozen or leaking pipes. Cold temperatures and wind chills can cause water inside pipes to turn to ice and cause a blockage, which then leads to building pressure. Whether the pipes are made from steel, copper or plastic, the pressure can result in cracks and leaks. Our plumbers can locate and fix pipe damage quickly so you can resume regular water use and minimize the costs.
-Water and sewage damage cleanup. When plumbing fixtures stop working, or severe weather strikes your residential area, rainwater and drain clogging can mean sewage backups. It doesn’t take much time until water backup saturates carpeting, ceilings, and other property.
