This program covers several types of work. First of all, the installation of backwater valve (www.backwatervalve.com). During heavy rain, city pipes may overflow and the water surges back to flood your basement. Backwater valve has a special gate that closes automatically during such event preventing basement from flooding. You avoid dealing with bad smell, property damage, insurance claim, your basement remains dry. The city will give you maximum $1,250 rebate for backwater valve installation. The second solution is to install a sump pump in the basement. It helps to remove properly groundwater from basement foundation. The city gives you maximum $1,750 rebate for sump pump installation. Also, it may be determined that weeping tile has to be disconnected from main drain (pipe severance and capping). For this City gives you $400 rebate.
Before installation, our technician will assess the situation in your house. Drain TV camera inspection is usually needed to be done to find out about drain pipe condition. Once we know how deep is drain pipe, in what direction it is installed, is there any branch pipes connected, what is the elevation of the pipe – then we can give you the proper price for backwater valve installation.
