The lack of a backwater valve puts your home in danger of harmful sewage flowing into your house. Call Sewer Squad Plumbing & Drain Services today to find out why a backwater valve installation is vital for your home’s protection.
What Is a Backwater Valve?
A backwater valve or backflow preventer serves a mighty purpose for Toronto homeowners. It prevents sewage backup from the city water mains. If this backup occurs and you don’t have a backwater valve, it can destroy your basement in minutes.
Sewer backup disasters tend to happen after heavy rains when the sewer becomes overwhelmed. Once the sewer line starts backing up, it can be an unstoppable nightmare without the help of an expert plumber.

Dangers of Backflow
One of the worst problems GTA homeowners will face is the backup of sewage into their home. Sewage in the home poses health risks with the introduction of viruses and bacteria as well as other contaminants that spread disease. Also, sewage backflow causes property damage by way of damaged pipes, which require replacing. Mold and mildew growth are common after a sewage backup, destroying floors, furniture, and walls. That’s why it’s essential that you consider a backwater valve installation ASAP to protect your health and your home.
