Drain Backups Causes
There are 3 common problems that cause drain or sewer backups. Each is serious drain malfunction and its recommended that they’re fixed by a licensed professional.

The ground area surrounding a home can only accommodate so much rainwater. When there is too much rain, water overloads the city sewer system and causes a backup in ones basement. The city should take responsibility when backups involve the city sewer system. City sewer backups are normally detected after a flood.
