How an approved Kingston backwater valve works

An approved kingston backwater valve works by having a swing check installed within it.  Basically, it allows water to flow through the backwater valve, out towards the city sewer pipe.  However, if the city sewer pipe is overloaded, and starts to back up into your home, the swing check valve on the backwater valve will float itself closed, and prevent any further flooding from coming into your home.  If you happen to live in a townhouse, and you’re the only resident with a backwater valve, your neighbours will be the ones dealing with all of the sewage.  It is advisable that they get a Kingston backwater valve as well.  The city of Kingston is willing to pick up the tab, or at least a big portion of it.  Give us a call today to find out more.
