Why You Need a Functioning Floor Drain

Your floor drain is essential to keeping water from backing up and flooding your basement.

In older homes, the floor drain was typically installed close to the laundry tub . This allowed for drainage should the laundry tub overflow.

In newer homes, the purpose of the floor drain is to act as a receptacle for condensation from high-efficiency equipment, such as air conditioners, dehumidifiers, and water softeners.

Clearing Floor Drian

Because water typically only trickles into the floor drain, a buildup of sediments can eventually lead to a clog. When that happens, the floor drain no longer serves its purpose and you expose your basement to water damage and flooding.

Floor drains in commercial spaces such as kitchens, garages, or restrooms, can be even more susceptible to clogs with runoff from snow, grease, and oil.

Bottom line? You need a functioning floor drain!
