Have Parks flood control. No water at all. It's well worth the price.

We have a flood control and have never had water in our basement. I do have it serviced every year and sewer lines rodded.

Our overhead sewers managed to hold back the sewage as intended, but we got a significant amount of seepage and some overland flooding via an egress door.

We have flood control and got a small amount of water come up through the floor drains. Nothing damaging though.

Overhead sewers but we got minimal seepage. Most likely a new crack in the foundation.

Tiled, plastic on walls, catch basin in front yard, pump with back up battery- no water. Neighbors on either side both got it and don’t have flood control.

We installed overhead sewers and sump pump for seepage years ago and no water since. Worth every penny. It’s so nice to not to have to worry about water in the basement every time it rains.

After having sewage two or three times we have flood control from Eveready with no problems. Checked every year. Permaseal fixed some cracks in foundation - perfect. We had a little seepage which came in along the side of the house where the sidewalk meets the house.

I have 2 sump pumps and an overhead sewer pump system. All foundation cracks sealed. No water. We’ve only had water twice from seepage. One was bad when we first moved in. One wasn’t so bad. We’ve been in our house 14 years.

We bit the flood control bullet last year after 5 major sewer water floods and as many have said, best decision ever! No water this last storm which was a huge relief and kind of miraculous after so much disgusting and devastating flooding in previous years. Worth every penny. Next we’re having a whole house generator installed to make sure flood control works during stormy power outages.

Sump pump ejects to over head piping out to drain. I guess it’s overhead sewers. 2 sump pumps. They run year round except like July. No flooding

Been in Niles for 25 years with a flood control system and never flooded. Could it be the construction on Howard Street. Will call Niles Public service on Monday to see what’s going on. My flood control unit is working fine. West Lawlor Street in Niles totally underwater. For your information the fans are running in the basement . At least the sun is out😀

We have an overhead sewer but we got water because of speepage through cracks that need to be sealed. Otherwise I think we would be dry.

I have flood control. I don't know if it was $$$ it was here when I bought the house. We had some water coming up the drain in the laundry room. It flowed about a foot away to the drain for the flood control where it was pumped out. The rest of the water that came in around the foundation is either a gutter problem or a foundation problem. We're getting new gutters next week, so time will tell. Damage, none, the floor get a good wash. Lol

With overhead sewer it's almost impossible to flood from sewer line. As long as you keep up on maintaining your pump system and have battery backup have installed hundreds of these systems with no complaints.
