Prevent your basement from flooding
This backwater valve does not require an access box. It is the most convenient backwater valve that can be installed not only inside the basement, but also outside of the house. Adapt-a-valve is fully accessible and a very reliable backwater valve.
In some rare situations it is not possible to install adapt-a-valve. We can then install two other types of backwater valves.
Basement flooding protection subsidy program in Toronto
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.
When the contract is signed, 24 Hours Plumber will obtain the building permit for the project. After installation is done, we pass inspection, usually within 2-3 days. Then whatever necessary is backfilled, derbies removed, general cleanup is done, job is finished. You pay the balance, 24 Hours Plumber technician writes “Paid in full” on the invoice and signs the invoice. Then you will be provided with rebate application form, we will help you to fill it up.
