Why Backwater Valves are Crucial in Ottawa

Ottawa’s unpredictable weather, including heavy rainfalls and floods, increases the risk of sewer backups. Backwater valves are essential in safeguarding your home against sewer backups and basement flooding.

They are a simple yet effective way to ensure that water flows only one way – out of your home. This clever device allows one-way flow from your home to the sewer line. As soon as backflow is detected, it closes up preventing sewage from entering your home.

Backwater valves are so effective that the City of Ottawa now has a bylaw requiring all new homes have one installed. They also provide rebates for retrofits. For many homeowners living in Kanata, massive flooding in 2009 caused by the overloaded main city sewer led to providing this plumbing protection free of charge while the city works on upgrading the sewer system to handle the increased population in Kanata and Ottawa.

Mainline Fullport is North America’s most trusted brand when it comes to backwater valves. The innovative, multi-award-winning Mainline Fullport design was the first backwater valve design to use the “normally open” gate concept. It can be installed on both storm and sewage lines (if your home was built before the 1960s they’re probably combined).
