City of Toronto Subsidy Program

We’ll do most of the work for you. All YOU need to do is give us a call and set up a time to begin your Backwater Valve Installation.  An unexpected flood in your basement can be both costly, and stressful. You can lose valuable personal items that are irreplaceable, and pay thousands on home reno’s to fix the damage.

Let’s be honest, we don’t always have that extra cash to throw around on unexpected emergencies and the last thing that home owners need is another expense draining their bank account. Installing a Backwater valve is not only a valuable investment, but it gives you peace of mind that your home is protected.

Protect your home from flooding before it’s too late. Call today for a free on-site quote.

  • How does a Backwater Valve work?

    Backwater valve

    A backwater valve is a device that prevents sewage in an overloaded main sewer line from backing up into your basement.

    • The valve automatically closes if sewage backs up from the main sewer.
    • A properly installed backwater valve must be placed so that sewage backup is stopped and does not come out through other outlets in your basement, such as sinks, toilets, showers and laundry tubs.
    • With a backwater valve alone, weeping tiles connected to the sewer line can’t drain when the backwater valve closes, causing water to overflow into your basement from the floor drain.
