What Is A Flood Control System?
Flooding can be a huge problem for Wheaton area residents. We have old water sewage systems that are not working very well, and flooding causes damage to our homes and basements.
A flood control system allows for protection from water entering through cracks in floors or basements. This is an issue that gets even worse when there’s been communication with sewer systems during heavy rains!
Basement flooding affects thousands of homes and businesses every year. We, at OneStop Pro, want to help you protect your home and basement from water damage by providing flood control systems installed by true professionals.
Floods can be stopped from occurring in many different ways, depending on your situation. We’ll help you choose the best flood control system option for your needs.
What causes basements to flood?
A flooded basement is an unfortunate occurrence that can happen for many reasons, such as when the sump pump or sewer line breaks. Sometimes it’s even because there was rainfall and the city sewers overflowed. When city sewers are over capacity, excessive rainwater can accumulate in your basement.
The issue of flooding in your basement can be a serious concern and if you want to avoid this problem, installing a flood prevention system is the perfect solution. With our team’s expertise, we’ll take care of everything from start to finish so that all you have left is enjoying having a basement that will never incur sewer backups or flooding issues.
We understand that every home may have sudden plumbing or sewer problems, but we are pleased to say we have you covered 24/7! Call us now for service with no hidden costs or fees.

Flood Control Systems
Some areas in Wheaton are at risk of flooding. Floods can ruin your property and also damage the items that you’ve worked hard to acquire over time- including furniture, clothing, electronics, or other sentimental objects. However, if a flood control system was installed in front of your home as part of an effective emergency response plan, then there’s very little chance for floods to do any harm!
Flood control sewer systems are designed to catch the water and store it temporarily before releasing it into a nearby river or stream. Flood control also prevents flooding in neighborhoods, residential homes, streets, and more!
The system is made up of underground pipes that carry stormwater from where it falls (called the “source”) to an area called a “catch basin” or “inlet.” The pipes have one-way valves so that when they fill with water, the pressure forces open another valve at the end of each pipe. That opens a section of pipe above ground near the catch basin, allowing excess water to flow out onto dry land.
Flood control sewers work like regular plumbing when there’s not enough rain. Sewage and stormwater flow into a common pipe to the processing plant. Here the sewage is cleaned up to meet water quality standards before it’s discharged into nearby waterways (rivers and streams).
The whole system is coordinated by a series of monitoring stations that measure rainfall. When extra water triggers an alarm, and more runoff starts flowing from catch basins, the monitoring stations open the valves to relieve pressure from the pipes.
This continuous cycle of stormwater and sewage flowing separately in pipes makes it possible for flood control sewers to protect everything nearby during heavy rain.
