Sewage backup problems in your home or business can cause odor and hygieneissues that make your entire property uninhabitable.
A lot of things can cause sewage backup, but one of the biggest culprits is an overwhelmed main sewer line that sends sewage back into your home. Fortunately, this disgusting and potential health risk of a problem is solvable with a simple backwater valve installation.
If you don’t already have a backwater valve on the drainage system of your Aurora property, you are at risk. Contact us today to fix it.
A backwater valve, also known as a backflow valve or backflow preventer, is a small device that you attach to your sewer drain pipe to stop wastewater from flowing back into your home.
As a one-way valve, it works by automatically closing when the contents of the drain pipe start flowing in the wrong direction. Reverse flow in the drainpipe usually occurs as a result of flooding or other circumstances that overwhelm the main sewage line, causing it to back up.
It might be a small and simple device, but the amount of protection it provides to your property cannot be overstated. That’s even more so if you have firsthand experience dealing with the cost and discomfort of cleaning and repairing the damage from sewage backup.
Every year, thousands of Canadian homes deal with the aftermath of a sewage backup. The smell and mess when this happens are horrible, but even worse, it damages your property and possessions and poses health risks to you and everyone on your property.
A simple solution to all of these is installing a backwater valve, especially if your property is in a low-lying area that’s prone to flooding.
Even if you think there’s no threat of flooding, sewage backup is still a risk in your Aurora home as long as you are on a sewer line that’s connected to a neighborhood that gets flooded. Simply put, it’s better to install a backflow valve and not need it than need it and not have it.
Our team has the experience and tools to install backwater valves where necessary to prevent flooding and sewage backup on your property. We accomplish this through a comprehensive assessment of your property to identify its vulnerable areas and applynecessary preventive measures.

Some property owners avoid installing backwater valves because they believe they are saving money. In reality, the cost of backwater valve installation is far less than the cost of cleaning up and repairingthe aftermath of a sewage backup.
Also, during a sewage backup, calling a plumber for emergency services may not get help fast enough to stop the damage to your property. That’s because your household won’t be the only one seeking the plumber’s services at that time. And for every minute floodwater and sewage pours into your home, more of your foundation, walls, floors, and possessions are under threat.
Lastly, backwater valve installation is a legal requirement in many Canadian cities, including Aurora and other parts of Ontario. Failure to install the valve will result in a fine until the valve is installed.
You can avoid such pains and expenses by simply having a backwater valve installed.
