Backwater Valves

At Pro-Line Fittings, we understand the importance of protecting properties from flooding and sewer backups. In this blog post, we will delve into the benefits of backwater valves and take a glimpse into their critical role in sewer systems. By understanding the power of these valves, we aim to help homeowners and property owners make informed decisions to safeguard their spaces from potential water damage.

As industry leaders in waterworks solutions, Pro-Line Fittings is well-versed in the value of backwater valves. These remarkable devices are designed to prevent wastewater from flowing back into a building’s plumbing system during instances of sewer system overload or backflow.

The benefits they offer are numerous and significant:

  • Preventing Floods: Backwater valves act as a powerful barrier, halting the flow of sewage or stormwater from entering the property. By doing so, they prevent potential damage and costly repairs caused by flooding.

  • Safeguarding Water Quality: Backwater valves provide peace of mind by protecting clean water sources, such as drinking water supplies and potable water lines, from contamination. They ensure the integrity and safety of your water supply.

  • Preserving Property and Assets: Flood damage can lead to extensive property damage and loss of valuable belongings. With backwater valves in place, you can proactively defend your buildings, basements, and assets against water-related disasters.

Backwater valves have a rich history dating back several decades. Recognizing the importance of backwater valves in flood prevention, building code authorities have mandated their inclusion in new constructions or plumbing system upgrades, particularly in flood-prone areas. Compliance with these regulations ensures the utmost protection for your property.
