        Basement Drain Sign In/Join 
        posted
        I have a rental property in Northern MN. When the renters use multiple water sources, dishwasher, shower etc... At the same time the basement floor drain over flows. Some background on the place. It just got a new septic tank this summer, doesn't have a sump pump, it also has been in the single digits the past week. I'm wondering why all of a sudden this is happening. Is it the cold weather slowing down the out flow? Any ideas? Any tips on fixing this?

        Thanks for the help in advance!
