Backwater Valve Rebate

Backwater Valve Rebate

Basement flooding is typically caused by heavy rains, melting snow or damaged pipes. But the most damaging and annoying reason for basement flooding is sewer backup. This happens when sewage from sewer lines, for some reason, can’t flow naturally into the sewer and begin to flow back or back up to your house. Sewer water is dirty, foul-smelling and teeming with all sorts of harmful microorganisms. Sewer backups will not only damage your property but also put to risk your health and your family’s safety.

As shown in the video, back water valve plays a crucial role in protecting your basement from flooding in times of heavy rains and city sewer backups. City of Toronto has began a Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program specifically for this reason. Here’s an excerpt from their website:

“Help protect yourself against basement flooding

Basements can flood for many reasons. While the City of Toronto is working to make improvements to its complex system of underground pipes, sewers and catchbasins, these improvements alone cannot completely protect a home from basement flooding. With the increasingly frequent and severe weather, it is essential that homeowners take the appropriate action to reduce the risk of basement flooding on their own private property. Those who isolate their home from the City’s sewer system can significantly reduce the risk of basement flooding.

To assist homeowners, the City offers owners of single-family, duplex and triplex residential homes a financial subsidy of up to $3,400 per property to install flood protection devices including a backwater valve, a sump pump, and pipe severance and capping of the home’s storm sewer or external weeping tile connection.”

Our water pipe busted in the downstairs bathroom. It was a total disaster. Our neighbor gave the number of Master Waterproofing. They came that day, looked at the pipe, gave us a rundown of how they would fix it. They started the work, and the next day, it was clean. They were professionals, alright. We were really satisfied.

Had my backup sewer valve installed by Master Waterproofing. They dug up my lawn, and when the work was done, they fixed my lawn back up. Their work was good, and now, I call them if there’s an emergency. My wife recommended them to her sister, and she loved their work as well.

Installed flow valves and some pump through Master Waterproofing, and they were amazing. Totally satisfied with their quality of work, the materials they used were of high quality. They respond quickly and finish their work on time. For plumbing emergencies, I now know who to call.

One side of our lawn used to get flooded every time it rained. It was unpleasant. A colleague of mine suggested Master Waterproofing. They came, checked it out, immediately got what needed to be done. They installed a new drainage system. They know their work very well, extremely good service and behavior.
