Need to add buried downspout drain with patio


I will be burying a drain and tying t downspouts off of garage and running to storm drain.
This is not a problem.

My question is can I tie in a floor drain from the patio as well?
Or will I have back flow issue?
Maybe add foot valve/Back flow preventer?

Thanks

Patios don't normally have drains, they are supposed to slope to drain water. But the quick answer is yes, if it all runs downhill. Just wondering how you make connections under a concrete slab??? I assume the patio drain does not connect to the house sewer line???

see if you can install a TEE-Y for the patio connection on the run out to the storm drain but as said as long as its pitched it should all flow besides the roof is the major drain off the patio won't catch as much rain...
