At American Vintage Home, we know everything there is to know about flood control systems. Taking the time to address your questions and concerns, we will help you choose the right flood control system for your home. Best of all, you can have peace of mind that your home will stay safe and intact through every storm.

How Does a Flood Control System Work?

These systems are designed to protect your home when the main sewer lines can’t. Flood control systems consist in part of one or two brass one-way flow valves that prevent sewage from flowing back to your house, while allowing sewage to flow toward the city sewer lines. Flood control systems also include an ejector pump that discharges waste water from the house when the city sewer lines back up and the flappers to your system are closed.

We’ll Help Protect Your Chicago North Shore Area Home

We Install, Maintain and Repair Flood Control Systems in Chicago’s North Shore Area

We do more than just install flood control systems. We also repair and maintain them to make sure your system is operating effectively year round. We will routinely inspect your system to make sure it is free of clogs or other issues that would cause it to malfunction. During our maintenance inspection, we will do the following:

  • Clean the components of your system,
  • Lubricate its moving parts and bolts,
  • Electronically test the condition and performance of the ejector pump
  • Clean the pump basin, and inspect all of the system components.

Once we have completed the above maintenance, we will ‘flood’ the system with water to ensure everything is working properly. If repairs are needed, we can perform them on the spot, so you won’t have to wait around for your flood control system to run properly.

If you notice anything unusual with your flood control system, don’t put off your Chicagoland home’s repairs!
