Backwater Valve Toronto

When a sewer line backs up into your house through your drainpipes, then it can lead to flooding. Basement flooding causes expensive repairs and damages, but what’s more, it can result in health hazards to your loved ones. You can stop sewage from backing up into your house by installing a backwater valve Toronto.

In accordance with the Toronto building code, all new structures need backwater valves set up. Toronto Municipal Building Codes require that you have a backflow valve installed at a present home if your plumbing fittings are lower compared to most upstream manholes in your road.

Where Is The Backwater Valve Installed And How Can It Prevent Flooding?

A backwater valve is set up on the sewer line on your cellar to prevent sewer lines out of allowing water to leak back to your house. If correctly set up, the backwater valve is only going to flow one; sewer can leak, but not into your home. The Province of Ontario currently approves of this mainline backwater valve for setup on the major sanitary sewer lateral of houses.

Professional plumbers recommend yearly backflow valve maintenance checkups. It’s necessary for all of the moving parts to get free motion and to clean away any debris.

The City of Toronto is continually working to boost its intricate network of underground pipes, sewers and capture basins. Regrettably, but these developments aren’t sufficient to ensure that a flood will not occur.

Climate change leads to more frequent, more intense storms and homeowners must do what they can to decrease the dangers of the basement flood. The City’s Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program makes it a lot easier for single-family home, duplex or triplex homeowners to implement preventative steps by way of a subsidy up to $3200 per house for installing flood protection fittings like sump pumps, backwater valves, and capping the house’s storm sewer link, pipe severance, and much more.

Backwater Valve Contractors

Backwater valves are a must-have for some structures and a should-have for property owners. The backwater valve contractors put these valves in place to protect your home from a back-up. If there’s a blockage in the main line, it will take some time before anyone’s aware. During this time, people will continue to use their plumbing, like flushing toilets and running sinks. After a while, the sewage has no place to go but back up the lines and into your home. Backwater valve contractors will prevent this from happening. In other words, it means we make sure sewage can only go one way; out of your home.

Do I Require Backwater Valve Contractors?

Some contractors will tell you that backwater valves are only necessary if the lowest finished floor in your home is less than one foot above the uphill manhole cover for the sewage system. However, it is a good idea for any home to have one. Clogged pipes can happen anywhere – putting any home at risk, regardless of your location.
