What is a Backwater Valve?

Backwater ValveA backwater valve is a special type of valve that can be installed at your property to prevent backflow from the sewer entering your home plumbing system. Under normal conditions this valve will remain open to let waste flow freely from your home into the public sewage system, but if water from the sewage system starts to back up, the valve will be lifted up by flap floats and sealed against a gasket, ensuring no sewage waste can flow back into your home. The valve automatically re-sets its position again once backflow has subsided.

A professionally installed backwater valve not only prevents flooding in your home, but also protects you against unsanitary conditions that can affect your health. New Canadian Drain & Plumbing have years of experience in the industry and are able to install backwater valves both inside and outside your home. Call us today for a free estimate.

What is a Sump Pump?

Sump PumpA sump pump can save you from a high costing wet basement repair, let one of our Toronto plumbers help you with this project. Emergency plumbing can be expensive so plan ahead and save yourself the headache. One study from the Society of Home Inspectors found that over 60 homes deal with basement moisture problems. There are two basic types of pumps. The first is called a pedestal pump which is taller and not usually as powerful as a submersible pump. These are good for occasional uses and are easily portable. The submersible pumps are usually more powerful, heavier and are meant to sit permanently at the bottom of the sump hole, As seen in the diagram.
