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.

Aquatech was wonderful right from the first contact to having Richard come out and give us a very complete and detailed quote to the two man crew who were here exactly on time and completed the day hours ahead of time. All the locates were taken care of and within a week of contacting them the job was completed. The workman did a fabulous job and were very respectful of our property. They reviewed the scope of the work before they started and asked if we had any questions. When the work was complete it was difficult to see where they had worked and dug the trench. Everything was tidier than before they started. We are very impressed and in a world where household repair companies can be less than favourable, Aquatech stands head and shoulders above any of them. We would highly recommend this company. We also have a life time transferable warranty too. Bravo. We will definitely be telling all the people we know about our wonderful experience. Thank you.

We had a flood disaster the day after we got the keys for our new home. Aquatech Waterproofing responded to my request for help quickly and came to access the damages the same day. They gave us several options for repairs as well as prevention that were fairly priced and a quick turnaround time. They executed our chosen plan quickly and did a beautiful job. They have been very responsive, answering questions about the products we chose and we recommend them to anyone that needs quality work done in a timely manner. Very compassionate and empathetic for our situation as well.

AquaTech is very professional and reliable. Valentina was very friendly, she scheduled the appointment at a convenient time and Nico came out to look at my problem. He diagnosed it and gave me a reasonable price. We went ahead with the job. The crew that came out to do it was very knowledgeable and professional. I had some questions and Igor explained everything to me with no problem. I highly recommend this company. Thank you AquaTech!

EXCELLENT experience. Andrew was the first one to arrive and was extremely kind and helpful. Igor and Basil joined Andrew a few minutes later and all three of them worked very hard and finished this massive job in one day. These are some of the hardest workers I have ever seen. There were no hassles or surprises and Andrew, Igor and Basil were very skilled and courteous. Also, Nico was VERY flexible with our constant changes of plans and was very accommodating and understanding. An excellent experience all around - could not recommend more highly!

Much thanks & appreciation to Slava & his hardworking crew for their excellent job excavating, installing weeping tiles & pipe, repairing cracks, waterproofing, and backfilling the 7'-deep trench 27' along the full side of our home. Wow!! On site, Slava, the lead foreman, clearly explained step by step their work including repairing foundation cracks and securing our downspout and other connections better then before. All in all, we are greatly satisfied & highly recommend Aquatech to anyone looking into correcting their leaking basements. Slava -- you & your crew brought humor, sincerity & experience -- no rush job here, just highly competent work by deserving technicians & company. Thanks also to Andrew and Terry for their super fast service with the gas line locate, the fast return calls, home inspection & estimate. Priced fairly for super work + 25 years warranty that can be passed on to a new homeowner. You guys were great!! Highly recommend! -- Anne & Frank - Scarborough

Terry was friendly, fair, and transparent on his work and recommendations. Other bidders could have gouged myself on the price but he was honest. He kept costs downs but the quality was still top notch. He treated our family like one of his own without being “fake” to get the job. He’s as genuine and real as they come.

Slava and his crew did a fantastic job of installing piers and raised our sinking front concrete 4 inches. Very courteous, hard working crew! They hand dig as opposed to other companies that wanted to use a backhoe thus, saved our shrubbery and trees. I would highly recommend Aquatech!
