A good way to protect against sewage backups is to install backwater valve that is designed to block flow into the house. Well-known award-winning Mainline check-valve offers an exceptionally tight air and water seal and protects you automatically, even if you are not at home! Many municipal Building Codes require you to have a backwater valve if your plumbing fixtures are below the top of the first upstream manhole on your street. A properly operating backwater valve allows flow to only go in one direction (out), preventing wastewater from entering your building during regular sewer system maintenance or accidental sewer system backups. To find out if you have or need a backwater valve, check your plumbing plans or consult with your builder or a professional plumber. Remember, if sewage backs up into your home, the cost to repair damages and clean up the mess will be well higher than the cost to install a valve. Law regulations define that towns and municipalities cannot be held liable for damages when a backwater valve has not been installed by a property owner. Truly, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!" The following should be kept in mind when installing backflow valves: local codes regarding backwater valves must be carefully checked to avoid having to tear out and replace with an approved valve. Changes to home plumbing must be done by licensed plumbers or contractors who will ensure that the work is done correctly and according to all applicable codes. Cost depends on many factors like depth of pipe, access, soil condition etc. Plumbers and contractors can provide advice on what type of backwater valve is the best to use in your particular case.
