 While cities and municipalities work relentlessly to clean and inspect sewer main lines, it is still possible for a sewer main to plug up and allow water and sewage to flow into the dwellings it serves. Raw sewage in your basement. Can you imagine it spewing out of your toilets, shower stalls and sinks? With record high precipitation in many parts of the nation, some families have experienced such unfortunate events. These backups not only cause damage that is difficult to repair, but also create dangerous health hazards. A mainline backwater valve can save the day.

 By installing the award winning "Mainline Fullport Backwater Valve" (sometimes referred as a "Backflow Preventer") in the main line to the sewer, property owners reduce their exposure to such an incident to almost nothing.

 Who's at risk? Your home or building may be susceptible to sewage backups if the lowest drain is less than 24" above the nearest upstream manhole. Most building codes require owners to install a backflow prevention valve to minimize the chance of flooding at properties with drains that meet the specification mentioned above.

 How does it work? A backwater valve can be installed in the basement at the exit point from the home or building, or in the sewer lateral outside of the building.

The "lateral" is the underground pipe that carries sewage from private property to the city’s sewer main. The backflow valve is installed downstream and prevents sewage from backing up into the lateral beyond ("above") this valve.

Backwater Valve Installation

 Some building codes now require the installation of a backwater valve no matter where the home is located in relationship to the first upstream manhole cover. Please check local municipalities plumbing code or with your local building inspector.
