What Is a Backwater Valve?
As we all know, over the past few years, there have been many cases of severe weather conditions in Etobicoke. Homeowners reported that their basement flooding happened more often than usual.

The good thing about hiring an experienced plumber is that they will quickly check your plumbing system and install a backwater valve if needed. It will solve a lot of problems with your drainage in future.
A backwater valve (sometimes called a sewer backup valve) is a valve that is installed on its sewer line and is designed to ensure that water flows only in one direction and not vice versa. If heavy rains suddenly happens, the city sewer drains may be overloaded, resulting sewer backflow into your home. If there is a sewage backup ( sewer system) and you have a backwater valve installed, the wastewater will not flow back into your home.
Backwater valves are designed with different specifications to help people prevent sewer back flow into your property. However, they all serve the same purpose, to avoid the water flowing backwards in the plumbing lines. It usually takes around 20 minutes to install backwater valves. In addition to effective water management, backwater valves also protect your home from overflowing sewer lines, sewer backups and sewer gases.
