How Do I Know I Need a Backflow Preventer?

A flooded basement is one of the most severe signs that your home needs a backwater valve. A flooded basement can cause extensive damage to your property, including the foundation, walls, and furniture. A backwater valve can help prevent flooded basements by controlling the flow of wastewater, reducing pressure on your plumbing system, and preventing backups.

A backflow preventer means the difference between a fresh, clean water supply and one contaminated with backflow—hence the name. There are a few different types of backflow preventers, including:

  • Double Check Valves
  • Reduced Pressure Zones
  • Pressure Vacuum Breakers

While they all differ slightly, in essence, these devices only allow for one-way flow of water. Water can flow through the backflow preventer and into schools, buildings, and residential properties. Once that water passes through the system, the check valves close, preventing any liquid from being able to move backward into the potable water supply. This prevents bacteria, dirt, and other harmful contaminants from entering an otherwise sanitary water supply.

Backwater Valve Installation

Backflow Prevention

Backwater valves, also known as check valves or backflow prevention valves, will keep sewage and contaminated water from backing up into your basement, as well as getting into your potable water supply. Also known as a check valve, non-return valve, reflux valve, retention valve, foot valve, or one-way valve is a valve that allows fluid to flow through it in only one direction. When the public sewer is overrun with runoff the backwater valve shuts to prevent leakage out of the plumbing fixture if sewage from an obstructed public sewer backs up the owner's drain line.
