Back Water valve installation

drain services in Toronto

This valve has revolutionized sewer protection across North America with its patented ‘normally open’ gate design. This valve is typically installed in homes or buildings that have basements, cellars, crawl spaces or area that are accessible for servicing. The normally open gate allows the sewer system to ‘vent’ any gases that may be causes by positive or negative pressures in the sewer line. it has a ‘Clear View’ top that makes inspection of the valve quick and simple for the building owner or plumber! As well, it comes with an integral clean-out for rodding the sewer lateral. Should rodding from the stack be necessary, the snake can easily pass over the open gate and be retracted without doing any harm to the components.

Above mentioned valves are designed to be installed on the inside of a home or building in the basement floor. In some installations, predominantly when the home is build on a concrete slab or above a crawlspace, it is not possible to install a backflow prevention valve on the inside of the building. The Mainline “Adapt-A-Valve” is designed as an economical valve to be installed outdoors in the ground.

Sump pump Installation

sump pump installation

Sump pump is the most effective way to keep your basement dry, it collects all the ground water in the sump or pit and the pump will pump it to outside. The water is coming to the sump pump from the areas which the soil or slope of the ground is causing it to leech in the homes and also the stormy weather for a long period can cause the water bed rises and as we are experiencing the climate change its better to take action as soon as possible before it gets too late

sump pump

a. The sump or Pit
First we need to assess the basement for finding the most proper spot for installation of the sump pump and we need to dig that area and install the barrel so it can be the collection point for the water.

b. How the sump pump works
The pump is a submersible or not submersible pumps which take the water and pump it through the drainage pipe to outside , the water is getting to the pump through the weeping tile system which are the collecting pipes that runs around the house at the level of the foundation and collects the ground water
