Back Water Valves Installations: when there is torrential rain fall, the city sewer lines may not be able to handle all of the excess water that is accumulating, which can cause water or sewage to flow back towards your home. This can cause a major problem for your home, with water or sewage flooding your basement which can be an unpleasant experience.
The back water valve prevents this from happening. Your home sewer system allows all water and sewage to exit your home into the city sewers, the back water valve is installed in your home’s main sewer system, which will prevent water and sewage flowing back towards your house should the main sewer line fill up with excessive amount of water.
Sewage can flow back through your drain pipes and floor drains causing major damage, and risk of contamination. By installing this type of valve it will prevent any sewage water from flowing into your home. (government rebates for certain cities and municipalities).
