What is a backwater valve?
Sometimes, a Toronto sewer system can become overwhelmed, often due to intense rain or a blockage in the city sewer system, causing sewage to backup into residential homes. You can avoid this kind of damage and health risk with backwater valves.
An installed backwater valve will allow sewage to flow out of the building under normal conditions. At the sign of city sewage backing up, a flap in the backwater valve is triggered and closes shut. The flap now closed tight, protects your basement from backing up with city sewage. Once the threat of city backup has passed, the valve automatically resets and normal drainage function resumes.
