Backwater Valves

Backwater Valves can protect your home and business from harmful backups caused by a full city sewer. Many things can cause a mainline city sewer to backup, but with a Backwater Valve installed by RFG Plumbing at your home’s main-drain, you’ll be protected from sewage backing up into your home.

Why can a Backwater Valve save me money?

When installed by an experienced RFG Plumber, a Backwater Valve can save you alot of time and money. The valve works by closing a flap during excessive back pressure caused by things like a slow sewer, heavy usage by your neighbours, or during an excessive rain storm. Once the flap is automatically engaged, the branch that the valve is installed on, is protected. The valve is a one way flapper, that allows water to leave your home, but not enter. Many homes’ insurance plan might offer discounts if you have a Backwater Valve installed with a Sump Pump Pit. Contact RFG Plumbing today to discuss a Backwater Valve, or Sump Pump Pit for your property.

Will the City cover the cost to install the Backwater Valve?

The City of Windsor currently has a Backwater Valve Program that allows citizens to have a large portion of the cost of a Backwater Valve installed. RFG Plumbing will even take care of the paper work to get you started. Contact us today for more information or visit the City of Windsor website for more information:  https://www.citywindsor.ca/residents/maintenanceandfieldservices/Sewers-/Pages/Basement-Flooding-Protection-Subsidy-Program-(BFP).aspx
