water is coming up from the window well drain and breaking the window and pouring in the house. next to the window well a downspot goes into a pipe which goes into a pipe that goes to the street storm sewer. a plumber discovered that the pipe is broken. the sump pumpt pit is filled so assuming that the drain tiles are carrying the water from the window well drain. what would cause it to back up.

This sounds like a lot of exploring until you find the restriction.
Did you plumber uses a camera to look into the pipe ?

Thanks,
