Your Backwater Valve Installations Specialists in Toronto!

May 28th, 2015 · No Comments · by

Over the past few summers, Toronto has seen some torrential rainstorms. Large amounts of rain can overwhelm the city’s sewer systems, increasing the risk of flooding. For homeowners, these storms can result in flooded basements, an issue that’s familiar to many residents of the GTA.

Once the sewers are overflowing, sometimes they can back up into homes, leading to messy and costly basement floods for homeowners.

One tool that homeowners have at their disposal to prevent this is a backwater valve installation. A backwater valve is not exactly a new innovation, but many, many homes throughout the city, especially in older areas of Toronto such as East York, Etobicoke and downtown, lack this safeguard.Backwater Valve Toronto

A backwater valve is designed to close off the sewer line, preventing this overflowing water from penetrating into your home.

Here’s a look at some recent feedback from our customers regarding our backwater valve installation services, pulled from the Homestars.com website.

We recently had a backwater valve installed in our basement. I would highly recommend Drainworks for any plumbing or drain work. Frank Casciaro’s attention to detail, support and customer service was exceptional. The team was very respectful, timely and took great care to keep our home as clean as possible. We will happily and confidently contact Drainworks for any future work that we need done.

I am a repeat customer, so this is good in itself! On this job, I was particularly impressed by: – the friendliness and communication skills of Frank Casciaro who answered all my questions. He is the best! – the very pleasant, hard working, thorough and respectful crews – the care they took to preserve the outside garden and lawn – their leaving the site exactly as they found it … including carting away the debris – the fact that the job was completed within a week of my initial enquiry – a great web site. Full marks on this company. You can not go wrong!

Norma and David, North York

I chose this company to perform the upgrading of my water service, the installation of a check valve, and camera inspection of basement floor drains based on excellent HomeStar ratings. I was not disappointed. I was very pleased with the quote and information supplied by Armando. The job was completed in a timely manner. The workers did an excellent job of cleaning up and restoring the front lawn to its previous state. A few things were pointed out to me by Armando that may become issues in the future–but I did not feel pressured to address them at this time. I would definitely recommend Drainworks and will call them again when the need arises.

We have used Drainworks in the past when we had roots growing into our drain. Once again we were more than happy with price and quality of workmanship. They were timely, very clean and friendly. The work was explained to us and we were kept informed at every stage. We would definitely use them again and highly recommend them.
