What is a Backwater Valve?
Under normal circumstances, your drainage system takes sewage away from your house. But during floods and other circumstances that put pressure on the sewer line, the flow of your drainpipes can reverse, sending sewage and floodwater back into your home, creating an unsanitary and inconvenient mess.
Fortunately, you can avoid this scenario by installing a backwater valve.
A backwater valve is a one-way flow control valve that stops the content of a drainpipe from flowing in the wrong direction. It accomplishes this by automatically closing when the sewer line becomes overloaded and backs up. Once it closes, the content of the drainpipe will be unable to flow back into your home.
If you don’t already have backwater valves installed in your Newmarket property, it’s best to contact a professional for installation as soon as possible. Lately, floods in Canada have become unpredictable and it’s best to protect your home by taking proper measures.
With a professionally installed backflow preventer, you have one thing less to worry about when there’s a flood anywhere near your neighborhood.
The Cost Benefits of a Backwater Valve Installation
Many homeowners in Newmarket ignore installing backwater valves because they want to avoid the installation costs. But in truth, the cost of backwater valve installation is far below the cost of cleaning up sewage backup and the related property damage.
When experiencing a sewage backup, you can call a plumber for emergency services. But since your household probably won’t be the only one seeking the plumber’s services at that time, it may take a while before help comes. And for every minute there’s floodwater and sewage in your basement, your property and possessions are under threat.
You can avoid such pains and expenses by having a backwater valve installed. The peace of mind that comes with the installation is something that you can’t put a price on.
Is Backwater Valve Installation in Newmarket Legally Compulsory?
Each region in Canada has unique laws when it comes to the installation of backflow preventers. For example, in Toronto, the installation of backwater valves isn’t mandatory, but in Newmarket, it is.
The Town’s Water Services is responsible for monitoring whether or not you are in compliance with the legal requirement to install backwater valves in your home. Failure to comply can result in fines, penalties, and possibly your home’s disconnection from the city’s water supply.
On the upside, you can get an incentive of up to $500 from the city to cover the costs of installing a backwater valve in your home. But you also need to get a permit before you can proceed with the installation on your property.
How much it will cost to install backwater valves in your home will depend on the unique circumstances of your property. For instance, if your property is small and requires only one backflow preventer, the entire process may cost less than a few hundred dollars.
But if you have a larger home that requires more than one backflow preventer, the installation process will cost more. Either way, the cost of installation will still be far less than the costs of repairing your home if sewage backup occurs. Plus, the town of Newmarket offers subsidies for backwater valve installation, which will significantly reduce the amount you have to spend out of pocket.
