Weeping tiles and downspouts
Weeping tiles and downspouts connected to the sanitary sewer
During heavy rainfall, the water from the roof eavestroughs that are connected to the weeping tile through the downspouts may cause weeping tiles to become overwhelmed. If your weeping tiles are connected to the sanitary pipes, this may cause rainwater or sewage to back up in your home.
Solution: Disconnect weeping tiles and downspouts from the sanitary sewer system.
Have a qualified plumber investigate disconnecting your weeping tiles and downspouts from the sanitary sewer system.
