    Default Floor Drains

    I have an older house and there are floor drains in the basement. When the sewage from around the area backs up, it backs up into my basement. Can I seal off the drains and finish the floor? What is the worse that would happen if I did? Is there a permit that I need to get?

    I would recommend you have an anti-back-flow valve installed. That way the drain will still work if you get water in the basement but the sewage won't be able to backup.
