Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program

Backwater Valve Installation Toronto

Basement flooding protection Subsidy Program in Toronto

Back-water valve installation Subsidy Program in Vaughan

What is the purpose to install back water valve?

When a sewer line backs up into your home through your drainpipes, it can cause flooding. Basement flooding causes costly damages and repairs, but more importantly, it can cause health hazards for your family.

You can prevent sewage from backing up into your home by installing a backflow valve.

Do I need backwater valve installed or not?

Who needs Back Valve installed

According to Toronto building code, all new constructions need backwater valves installed.

Toronto Municipal Building Codes require that you have a backflow valve installed in an existing house if your plumbing fixtures are lower than the most upstream manhole (number 1 on the picture) on your street.

Home (A) in this example does not require a backwater valve. Home A should not experience basement flooding caused by sewer backups because all the plumbing fixtures and drains are higher in comparison with  the first upstream manhole on the street.

If the first floor drains of Home B are more than 24” higher than top of the first upstream manhole, this house should be fine too. However, you should have a backflow valve installed when you install the second floor living space, since the drain fixtures will be lower than the first upstream manhole, resulting in sewage backups.

Home C would also need a backwater valve, because the drain would be located below the first upstream sewer.

Where Should the Backwater Valve Be Installed and How Does it Prevent Flooding?

Back Water Valve Installation

A backwater valve is installed on the sewer line in your basement for the purpose of preventing sewer lines from allowing water to flow back into the home. If properly installed, the backwater valve will only flow one-way; sewage can flow out, but not back into the home.

The Province of Ontario currently only approves of the Mainline Fullport Backwater Valve for installation   on the main sanitary sewer lateral of homes.

Back water valve maintenance

Expert plumbers recommend annual backflow valve maintenance checkups. It is important for all the moving parts to have free movement and to clear away any debris.

Can I Do a DIY Backwater Valve Installation?

No. Only Licensed Plumbing Companies may install backflow valves.

Anta Plumbing Inc., a City of Toronto licensed plumbing company installs backwater valves. We will also prepare the installation permit and provide you with guidance about the BACKWATER VALVE INSTALLATION SUBSIDY PROGRAM.

Basement flooding protection Subsidy program in Toronto

The City of Toronto is constantly working to improve its complex network of underground pipes, sewers and catchbasins. Unfortunately, but these improvements are not enough to guarantee that basement flooding won’t happen.

Climate change results in more frequent, more severe storms and homeowners should do what they can to reduce the risks of basement flooding. The City’s Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program makes it easier for single-family, duplex or triplex residential home owners to implement preventative measures by means of a subsidy of up to $3200,00 per property for installing flood protection fixtures such as sump pumps, backwater valves, capping the home's storm sewer connection, pipe severance, and more.

These are the subsidies available:

Backwater valves:  The subsidy equals 80% of the invoiced costs, up to a maximum of $1,250. Costs include the permit, materials, eligible labour, and taxes.

Sump pumps: The subsidy equals 80% of the invoiced costs, up to a maximum of  $1,750. Costs include the permit, materials, eligible labour, and taxes.

Backwater valve + sump pump: The subsidy equals 80% of the invoiced costs up to a maximum of  $2,800. Costs include the permit, materials, eligible labour, and taxes.

Pipe severance and capping: The subsidy equals a maximum of $400 of the invoiced costs.

Back-water valve installation Subsidy program in Vaughan

The City of Vaughan will determine whether you are eligible for a subsidy, provided your property meets all of the follow requirements:

- It must be registered within the City of Vaughan as a single-family residential, duplex or triplex property.

-The subsidy applies to existing homes only and not to new homes that are still in the planning stages or currently being built.

-All eavestrough downspouts should be properly disconnected from the City’s sewer system.

-The installation should be handled by a plumber who is currently licensed by the City of Toronto.

-The property owner must obtain a plumbing permit from the Building Standards Department and arrange for inspection.
