    What can I install to prevent water from coming up basement drains
    When we get a heavy rain the city system can't take away all the water and then the water flows into our basement through the drains. I heard you could put something in the drains that stops it. Also, I know that you can put a backflow preventer in the main pipe. That is costly. Any ideas?
