What Are Backwater Valves?
Many homeowners aren’t familiar with backwater valves or why they’re necessary; however, these gadgets can protect your family from toxic water getting into the house. Backwater valves prevent sewage from coming back into the home from the city’s water mains.
During heavy rains, it’s not uncommon for storm drains to become overwhelmed. When a sewer line backs up, it can cause the water to flow in the wrong direction — back into your home. The same thing happens when water mains break. A backwater valve guards against this harmful backflow of sewage to ensure your drinking water remains clean and untainted.
For more information on backwater valves and to assess your home’s risk for backflow, contact the pros at Sewer Squad Plumbing & Drain Services at 289-203-8175. We’re standing by, ready to serve the residents of Mississauga and the greater Toronto area.
Why Backflow Is Dangerous
One of the most significant dangers posed by plumbing problems is the danger of sewage backflow into the home. Sewage is a hazard to your health because it carries bacteria, viruses, and other disease-causing contaminants. Also, backflow can cause severe damage to plumbing resulting in flooding and mould and mildew buildup.
If you don’t have a backwater valve, consider getting one installed as soon as possible.
While backflow valves are usually installed to protect commercial properties and multi-family residences, any household can benefit from the protection these devices deliver.
