In certain areas of Toronto and around the Canada a public sewer back up may cause a flooded basement. This back up can be due to heavy rains or over development in the area causing the system sewer to be over burdened. Other possible causes of a sewer back up could be a malfunctioning city sewer, a high groundwater table, although there are various other reasons. As in all of these cases a sewer back up does not mean that the house sewer is defective or needs to be cleaned. Many times the solution to stopping a flooded basement from happening and stopping a public sewer back up is by installing a sewer check valve, also known as a backwater check valve. A sewer check valve is a one-way valve that only lets water out, and automatically closes when water attempts to enter the house drain system. A sewer check valve (backwater check valve) is a very simple and dependable device. Once installed a sewer check valve needs maintenance once or twice a year to make sure it is clear of any debris or sediment that may block the flapper in the valve. This maintenance is done in a couple minutes by removing four screws with any number of simple tools. No special skill or tools are needed, and this maintenance will ensure many years of dependable operation.

Only Toronto plumbers licensed and insured in your municipality should be trusted with an installation involving your house sewer system.
