Frequently asked questions

How does a Sewer backflow preventer work?

Sometimes called a sewer backflow valve, it is designed to prevent sewage or water from entering your home in the event that your sewer system becomes overloaded or overwhelmed. Consisting of a small flap with floats, it mechanically “detects” when the flow has reversed and closes, disallowing the backflow to happen.

Are there different types of sewer backflow preventers?

Yes. Among them are Automatic Flood Gate Valve, Sewer Check Valve, Manual Sewer Gate Valve, Air Gap Backflow Preventer, and Specialized Backflow Preventer. They all have slightly different designs for varying functions, but all need to be installed by a licensed plumber.

What are the benefits of a sewer backflow preventer?

Mainly, the reason a backflow preventer exists is to prevent the backflow of sewage from municipal lines or private septic system lines into your home, which can not only contaminate your living space but your drinking water as well. This is paramount, considering such contamination can contain parasites, viruses, funguses and bacteria responsible for many diseases and infections.
