BACKWATER VALVES

Backwater valves to prevent sewer backflow

Backwater valves are easier and cheaper to install but have some limitations. You cannot use any of the plumbing facilities in your home while it is in the closed position. And if you have seepage tiles or foundation drains that are tied into the sanitary sewer service, your basement may still flood once the valves close as the footing drains or seepage tile water will be trapped and could back up.

If the seepage tile or footing drains will need to be separated out to a new sump pump pit. If you have a basement with no sump pump pit, assume that you have the footing drains or seepage tiles tied directly into your sewer service.

Regular maintenance

Some maintenance is required to keep the protection of your basement. You should realize that regular maintenance is needed to keep the improvement working as intended. Inspection and cleaning of a backwater valve system is recommended once a year.
