Stand pipes can be sealed into a floor drain with an expanding rubber bushing, or a threaded steel coupling in the pipe.
A standpipe can prevent a flooded basement. The problems requiring standpipes are poor drainage around the house and old drain tiles, that may now be filled with clay. These may be forcing ground water through the block walls or floors. The proper solution requires examining all the information.
A standpipe is an open-ended pipe inserted in a floor drain. It must be watertight so any water rising up in that drain rises in the pipe, not out on the floor. They were popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s when the county drain system could not handle all the storm water. Instead of flooding, those who had standpipes in their drains bought some time before they would flood.
There are different ways to seal a standpipe into a floor drain. They include expanding rubber bushings, and leading-in a threaded steel coupling and screwing a pipe into it; the 1950’s method.
Note: Older homes in our floodplain that do not have a three-inch opening in the floor drain could already have a coupling leaded-in. You will swear there aren’t any threads in the coupling, but five minutes with a pipe tap and you will see. It will help to measure the hole first to see if the plumber leaded-in a 1 1/2″ coupling or 2″.
The danger from using a standpipe is when it is too tall or capped. For most four-inch thick basement floors, (our 1950’s neighborhood) an 18″ standpipe is safe. For local information, contact your city building department for feedback on your area’s success with different sizes. A capped drain or standpipe over 36 inches tall can hold back so much water that your floor can buckle, crack and then leak. Remember, you own a house, not a boat.
The real cure for your problem is to eliminate the source of the water. That wet corner in your basement could have a missing downspout, a low flowerbed or a patio pitched towards the house. Fix that first. There is no sense in dealing with water that should be draining away from the house. This is why I am not in favor of inside drain systems. Because they deal with water flowing around your footings and through your walls that should not be getting there in the first place.
Finally, check out the main sewer drain from the house to the city sewer line. If you have a medium to large tree in the front yard you could have roots. Roots clogging your sewer drain to the city will cause water in the basement during a heavy rain. A standpipe will only delay and camouflage a clogged sewer main.

  1. The towns that use people’s basements as retention ponds should be responsible for preventing this from happening. Homeowners shoveling out thousands because of their problem should not be happening.

  2. Is it possible to use the donut and attach a hose to it and put it in a sump pump? Or is the hose to long that it would cause that raising concrete issue?

  3. House is 1907. Lived here 2 years. Not in a typical flood zone.
    Recent rain however had made my drains backup into basement. Talking to city they told me their system could not handle the 2 inches in 1 hour rain fall. my part of town has a shared system (sewage and runoff with most gutters drain into sewage with only 6 inch pipe system). On very flat section of town.
    So I believe my backup from drains was sewage aswell.
    You recommend a solution I can do?
    Standpipe or maybe a check valve drain (since it's tied to sewer can I cap it or pressure to much?

    I only received maybe 1 inch but the damage was done to my semi finished basement.

  4. Hi thanks for video very helpful I notice you one for the floor drain and for the shower what about the toilet in the basement and I need you store address thank you

  5. I have a drain in my laundry room that goes to the backyard and ally where the sewer is. The man who routes my basement said to get a Econo plug but I'm pretty sure that's a storm sewer can I use the Econo plug without worries of water coming up through my bathroom or shower? Sort of confused cuz you said most of the drains in laundry bins go out to the sanitary drain but I'm sure mine goes to the storm sewer cuz when I get backed up there's no feces in the water. Please give me a reply cuz I'm curious if I should buy a plug or not cuz I keep getting floods from the backups home was built in 1964 I live in Chicago. Thank you

  6. I like your video but I’m not sure I really understand what the standpipe is or does and what would be the need for it other than having back up sump pumps and hoses at the ready going out the window

  7. Would it be a problem to keep the "laundry room" drain open (as the floor is tile and easier to clean in an overflow) and stop up the other drain (closer to the street) but in the carpeted side of the basement?

  8. Hi, saw you made this video in 2014. So hopping there might be new information. I have a drain with a washer/dryer stacked on top of the drain due to no space. I live in a garden level condo building. The sewer lines backed up and flooded my unit(in Chicago). A standpipe is not an option due to the washer/dryer, but can I put the flood-guard on this drain and let the sewage water come up my shower/bathtub drain? You mentioned water pressure, so I'm wondering if I put the flood-guard on the one drain if that would cause a problem. Thank you!

  9. Very interesting! Thanks for the detailed explanation. We have the same system in Chicago. Both of my grandmothers had houses built around the same time (1958) and both always worried about flooding but for two different reasons. One had in floor plumbing and used a stand pipe method but had to be home when the storm was happening or else the basement would flood with sewer water. One time it was so bad the whole street was underwater and her basement was up to the rafters of the basement with water because she wasn't home to put in the stand pipe. My other grandmother had overhead plumbing. She never had to worry about sewer water backing up but she lived in constant fear of power outages because once the power went out the sump pump would fill with water and overflow and flood the basement. I'ts always something I guess. I now own her house with the overhead plumbing and installed battery back up with an additional pump. When the power fails now that kicks on and I'm good for many hours or even days depending on how much water is being pumped out. Basements are great to have but they are always a worry too.

  10. I was just about to seal our drain because after living here for 3 years, our basement has begun to flood. Not just water but sludge is coming in. It’s awful. Glad I’m not doing that anymore – that note about water pressure is terrifying. I’ll look more into this.

  11. My basement flooded because the floor drains were run to a river behind my house back in the forty's. The actual sewer line that was run in later years is well above the basement floor level.
    When we had the massive flood here in WV a couple of years ago, I ended up with about 6' of water in my basement through the floor drains. When the river receded the water flowed out the floor drains but the damage was significant. Can I put the stand pipe higher than 18" under this scenario or should I seal the drains and add a sump pump?

  12. Good video.  I am in the country no sewer, property has been know to have a high water table.  Lived there 6 yrs no water in basement, I mean we have had rain of such that I had a lake in the front yard and no water in the basement.  2 weeks ago I have a flooded basement 1-2", water is coming up the floor drains.  House is a 1951 with NO sump hole.I suspect that the old French drain has an issue, unfortunately the house has been added onto so you can't get to 1 side of the basement.  Questions:  1-do you feel a stand pipe would be a good solution or at least an tool to see how high the water table is?  2- permanent fix of a sump hole or a full in side French drain with sump hole??  Thanks

  13. Great video, thanks. I have a drain in my floor in front of the washer/dryer/furnace/water heater. That welled up as well as the one in the garage. Can I safely block the one in the laundry room completely? I guess you might not know. House was built in baby-boomer times. Take care. – Jeff
