    Backwater Valve & Sump Pump Experts in Toronto

    The backwater valve and sump pump are part of a more complex drainage system that drains water out and away from your home. These parts come into play once the water is collected through drain pipes and is brought to the sump pit Рa basin that holds the water until it is released out and away from the home. In high water  areas, the sump pump can do most of the work to keep your home dry.

    Here is a breakdown of each of the parts:

    Backwater Valve: The backwater valve contains a flap that opens to allow water to flow through in one direction, guiding it to the sump pit. Once the water passes through, the flap closes to prevent backflow.

    Sump Pump: The sump pump is the pump connected to the sump pit, that takes in the water, and pumps it out and away from the home.

    These parts of the drainage system are essential to ensure that the water leaves your home for good, unable to find its way back in.

    We offer a variety of sump pumps. Our specialists will help you decide the most suitable option depending on the area you live in. In high water areas, the sump pump can do most of the work to keep your home dry.

    Sump Pump Variations:

    • Submersible Pump: These pumps are designed to be placed in the bottom (or sump) of a basin and operate when water reaches a certain level.
    • Pedestal Sump Pump: This type of pump is set up on a pedestal above the basin, allowing more room in the sump for solids and other debris.
    • Battery-Powered Sump Pump: This type of pump operates on a battery that needs to be charged periodically, usually via an AC power source.
    • Grinder Pumps: This type of sump pump links directly to the water main line. These pumps grind sewage and other waste materials into smaller particles before pumping them away from the home or building.
    • Combination Sump and Sewage Pump: A combination sump and sewage pump is ideal for areas where basement flooding frequently occurs or where sewage back-up is common.

    Benefits of Installing a
    Backwater Valve & Sump Pump

    Backwater valves and sump pumps are important parts of the drainage system that help ensure your home stays dry. Having them installed is a preventative measure that could help you avoid severe water-related damage in the future. Here are some benefits associated with having a backwater valve and sump pump installed:

    • Eliminate the chance of mold. Water damage could lead to mold growing in your home, which could cause health issues in the future.
    • Protect the structure of your home. Water seeping into your walls or pooling around your home (above or below ground), could lead to a number of structural issues, causing settling, eroding, cracking, etc.
    • Increase the value of your home. Basement water damage is a problem many homeowners experiences. Having a functional drainage system is a great selling point for future potential buyers and will increase your home’s value.
    • Save money on collateral damage repairs. When water makes its way into your home, it can get absorbed into your walls, floors, carpeting, furniture, etc. Depending on the severity of the situation, these damages could be very costly.
    • Get peace of mind. Invest in your drainage system so you can leave your house and sleep well at night without having to worry about how much water will be in your basement when you return.

    The backwater valve is a flap that allows water to pass through, then closes to prevent backflow, stopping water from coming back in.

    A sump pump is a pump that gathers water from the sump pit and releases it out and away from the home.

    These are important parts of the drainage system that can help you remove water that already got into your home or prevent water from getting in. There are a number of benefits to having them installed, including eliminating the chance of mold, protecting your home’s structure, and saving on other damage costs.

    If water already got into your home, chances are you would first need to repair the entry points. However, if you do not have proper drainage, water will continue to pool and water will eventually find its way back in. The backwater valve and sump pump are proactive measures to re-route the water away from your home (sump pump), and make sure it cannot get back in (backwater valve).
