Backwater valves Installation in Toronto

backwater_valve_installationBackwater valves in Toronto are becoming popular additions to home sewers. They perform a very important task: protecting the home from flooding due to city sewer backups caused by flash flooding. Since flash flooding has become more common in the past few years, the city now offers a $1250 rebate off the installation of a backwater valve in Toronto.

Backwater valves allow the flow of sewage to exit the building and protect against the sewage coming back in from the sewer line. This is achieved by a flap that opens one way towards the city sewer, and closes if any water flows back towards the home.
