It is not enough simply to put in a backwater valve and let it be.

As time passes, the flap of your backwater valve will start to flow and become susceptible to fractures. If it cracks, then you require a fix straight away. Your backwater valve lid is in fact removable, making it suitable for a professional plumber to have a glance inside. When Aquatech Drain Repair conducts backwater valve reviews, we assess the flapper (in addition to the gaskets on the valve and lid) is undamaged and moving freely.

After a heavy rainfall, it is a fantastic idea to look at the state of your own backwater valve because occasionally the change can reverse as a security measure. This implies that if it is not reversed back, water can’t drain outside of your property.

When You Need Services For Drain Back Up

A drain back up may not seem important, with the pipes and drains being out of sight and often out of mind. However, wait until you notice slow flow when you are taking your shower, or the water won’t go down your sink. Then the drainage system gets your attention.

You know that there is something wrong with your drainage system when the water is flowing at a snail’s pace down your drains. You know there are problems when water fails to drain. When flooding occurs, then you know it’s not a simple problem. When dirty and smelly water backs up in the pipes and sits in your tub or sink, then you are in dire need of pipe cleaning experts.

The cause of a drain back up is usually built-up dirt. Substances such as hair, pieces of soap, leaves, litter, grease or silt are washed down your drain system and may pile up with time. The build-up causes blockages as water cannot flow through. If the water fills up pipes, then it will back up and flood it’s the source (say toilet bowl, sink or bath).

When Should Backwater Valve Contractors Do The Installation?

Backwater valve contractors can handle installation at any time. Aquatech Drain Repair recommends any newly constructed buildings to hire contractors early, due to backwater valve installation process. Sewage flooding can also occur during or after massive rainstorms. Not all government by-laws require backwater valves just yet; however, some insurance companies will not pay for damages in many homes if there’s no functioning backwater valve.

As our climate changes, meteorologists predict more heavy rainstorms in the future. The amount of water going into drains will be affected by that change in weather significantly. City drains are often overloaded during rainstorms and snow, as they’re trying to redirect all the water away. As a result, we’re facing backed-up drains. Typically water moves to the lowest point. Unfortunately, that lowest point could end up being your basement. An installation by backwater valve contractors is highly recommended to prevent your property from water damage. If water backs up, your valve will shut, keeping you and your house safe from severe damage.

What Our Clients Have to Say

450+ HomeStars Reviews with a 10/10 Average Customer Rating

During the recent heavy rains my basement, dry for three years, started getting wet around the entrance to my basement and leaking under the basement door. I phoned Andrew at Aqua tech, and he came over, assessed the situation, explained the appropriate work needed to correct the problem.

It was all internal, we could break up the concrete floor in the entrance way, install weeping tile, and drainage pipe, and drain it all into a sump pump. He also installed interior waterproof membrane.

The team that executed the work, lead by Terry, was great and completed everything in one day. A warranty for the work was provided and i feel confident that if I have any further issues a quick call to Andrew will get action. All in all, a very positive experience.

We had a number of leaks in our cold room, so bad that water literally ran through and down the drain whenever it rained. I called 4 companies for quotes. I was very happy with two of the companies, but in the end decided to go with Aquatech. I am very glad that I did.

Eugene provided me with three options, all of which would have worked, and I decided on one of them.

They went to work almost immediately, and completed the work twice as fast as I would have thought possible. The guys (Terry and Andrew) were very quick, neat, organized, and kept me informed every step of the way. It has been an absolute pleasure doing business with them.
-Kevin, Toronto ★★★★★

It's always daunting to find a reliable company to help you understand what a big and expensive job entails and then to do it right. Our experience working with Andrew and his team was excellent.

Very responsive, patiently explained every aspect of the job and Igor, Slava and the crew were professional, courteous and completed the job with such care, as if it was their own home.

A family run business that doesn't cut corners, is honest with their customers and treats their employees well. It shows in the workmanship!
