Why install a backwater valve?
Backwater valve installation is a smart way to protect your family from contaminated water. Factors such as sudden changes in water pressure or massive rainfall can cause out-flowing water contaminants to reverse, flowing into your personal or community supply lines. This can be disastrous for everyone involved, potentially causing illness and other problems. A backwater valve installation can prevent this from happening, setting up your system in such a way that it is impossible for the sewage to flow back into the intake pipes.
