It all starts with the main stuck 3-4 inches (ca. 10 cm) in diameter, and travel from the main sewer line all the way through your house or business  and vented out the roof this vent allows methane gas to escape and it provides much-needed air so all your drains follow freely.

Drain lines for all the fixtures in your home or business follow through horizontal drain pipes and into this main stack and each fixture is vented through it too. In order for various drains to flow in the main stack water needs to gently flow down hill.

Codes may vary in size; these horizontal drain pipes typically need to slow down at least a quarter of an inch per foot of travel in other words a branch drain travelling 4 feet (1.22 m) to the main stack needs to slope downward a full inch.

Managing the aftermath of a flood can be emotionally, physically and financially exhausting. Luckily, today’s plumbing technology has given us how to safeguard our homes from floods before they even occur.

Installation of a Sewer Mainline Backwater Valve in your Home or Property

A mainline backwater valve installation is the best answer to shield your Property or home from sewer backups and floods. Operating as a reverse preventer, a sewer backwater valve is a tiny device about the scale of a backpack. This tiny, nonetheless outstanding device stops the reverse flow of water into your home, keeping your basement dry and your home free from damage.

When it’s in place, your sewer backwater valve installation gives you complete genuine peace of mind knowing that any sort of reverse flow of sewage and greywater will be blocked into your basement. It’s important that the reverse flow of sewage and greywater be halted quickly because once it begins to enter your home or property, the harm is now done and it’s past the point where it is possible to turn around.

Backwater Valve: How it Works

Your property or home’s drainage system allows gray water and sewage to drain out of the property or home. A backwater valve will halt reverse flow of gray water or sewage from reverse flow into your property or home should the building sewer main become overloaded. At the most, you can access the backwater valve by opening the access cover. You can verify by looking through the clear cover on the backwater valve access box.

In the back water valve there is a swing flap that is regularly open permitting sewer gases to be vented as well as sewage and greywater to leave your property or home. There is a swing flap in the event of reverse flow of sewage or grey water in the municipal drainage system into your property or home. The flap will start to lift at the same rate as the reverse flow and shut tight in this manner keeping anything from entering your property or home.

When the municipal drainage system clears, the flap will fall into the open position due to gravity, thus permitting water and sewage to continue streaming out of your property or home.

In the event that this backwater valve is being put in a current home, rather than in new construction, obtain a plumbing permit from your municipality as needed.
