When Installing Backwater Valves:

Backwater valves are installed in order to prevent sewage and other waste water from flowing back into a home or building. Here are the general steps for installing a backwater valve:

  1. Locate the sewer line. The backwater valve should be installed on the main sewer line, as close to the home or building as possible.
  2. Cut the sewer line. Using a pipe cutter, carefully cut the sewer line to create an opening for the valve.
  3. Install the backwater valve. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to properly install the valve in the opening in the sewer line.
  4. Test the valve. Turn on the water supply and test the valve to ensure that it is functioning properly.
  5. Connect the piping. Attach the necessary piping to the valve according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  6. Close up the valve. Once the valve is installed and tested, cover it with a protective casing to keep it safe from debris and other potential damage.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Backwater Valve?

When there’s a heavy rainfall, there’s a great risk of basements getting overfilled and homeowners having to deal with a water backup issue. Worse, homeowners can also deal with dirty raw sewage parading into their basements, causing further unimaginable damage. Lucky there’s a way to prevent this and that is through installing a backwater valve.

How Does The Backwater Valve Work?

A backwater valve is a plumbing device that helps to prevent wastewater from backing up into a home. The valve works by blocking the flow of water when it reaches a certain level, preventing contaminated water from entering your home’s plumbing system. It’s an important measure for both safety and prevention of costly damage from backed-up sewage. It can be manually operated or it may be connected to a float switch that activates the valve when water levels reach a certain point. When properly installed, these valves will keep backed-up water out of your home and ensure its plumbing stays free of contamination due to sewage backups.

What is a water softener?

A piece of equipment that replaces the calcium and magnesium as well as most minerals through ionic exchange from your water supply system.

Why are my faucets stiff and so difficult to operate?

Stiff faucets are caused by worn internal components such as cartridges. This is due to the hardness of the water.

What is the difference between hard and soft water?

Here at Preferred Plumbing Solutions Inc., one of the most common questions we receive is about the differences between hard and soft water. Hard water contains minerals like calcium and magnesium, which can cause scale to build up in pipes and appliances over time. Soft water on the other hand, is free of those minerals, allowing soap to lather better and providing a gentler touch. In addition, soft water can assist with reducing soap scum in sinks and showers while helping reverse some of the damage caused by hard water. Ultimately, the key difference between hard and soft water has to do with those mineral levels and their effects on plumbing systems.

How often should I have my drains cleaned?

Preferred Plumbing Solutions Inc. recommends that you have your drains cleaned every two years to ensure optimal performance of the system and to prevent any clogs from building up. Scheduling regular drain cleaning appointments is a great proactive measure to maintain your plumbing and extend the life of your system. Professional maintenance and care can help you avoid expensive backups or repairs down the road!
