 Sewer backs up in basement
Author: toilet25 (UT)

When my neighbor accidently plugs the sewer line the water backs-up into my basement toilet and floods my basement. This is because my basement sewer line is only about 24 inches higher than his. My basement toilet is lower than the fixtures in the neighbor's house, so I am the first one to discover the back-up. Is there a way I can protect myself. I don't like coming home to a flooded basement with brown things floating around. Any help appreciated.

Maybe you should try to find out WHY it happens. ORdinances usually do not permit two houses to share a single sewer branch line for just this reason.
