FOR ALL BACKWATER VALVE INSTALLATION NEEDS TRUST THE EXPERTS AT AQUATECH WATERPROOFING
HOW DOES THE BACKWATER VALVE WORK?
It’s essential to have a backwater valve system installation since it helps to prevent sewage backflow from damaging your home and belongings. Sewage backflow can be caused by lack of water pressure, flooding, or a few other reasons. Instead of draining away, the sewage flows back up into your pipes which causes damage and a huge mess in your basement from the backflow. This is the importance of the backwater valve system as it prevents all this from happening. Aquatech Waterproofing can help with backwater valve installation and application of basement flooding subsidy program from the Toronto City administration.
HOW DOES THE BACKWATER VALVE INSTALLATION WORK?
The backwater valve is a straightforward mechanism but works very efficiently. A backwater valve system plays a vital role in ensuring a safe and proper functioning drainage system for your home.
During the backwater valve installation, a flap and a built-in drainage slope are included. The flap stays down and lets water out when the water is flowing away from your home properly. The flap floats up to block the sewage whenever the water starts to backflow up the pipes. When the disaster has been successfully avoided, the flap opens into its initial position.
Toronto basement protection subsidy program
The city of Toronto offers a basement flooding protection subsidy program. This program helps homeowners have correctly placed flood protection, backflow prevention valves included. They offer a huge subsidy of close to 80 per cent of total cost or up to $1,250 value for installation or replacement of backflow valve. We highly recommend this simple subsidy program for basement flooding protection application to protect your home at a low cost.
Do you need to install a backwater valve?
The above subsidy program is available to Toronto residences since they are at a major risk of damage due to severe floods and harsh weather. However, not all homes require this installation, but for the few that do, it is highly significant, especially for the houses on slopes. If you have received any signs of sewage backflow such as drained water flowing back into the pipes, then you require a backwater valve to prevent future problems. Backflow of sewage is a danger to your health and that of the family. It also puts you at risk of experiencing property damage.
