Protect Your Home with Sewer Backflow Valve Installation
Sewer backflow preventer valve installation is one of the best ways to keep your home protected from sewer emergencies that can cause backflow and water damage. They’re especially helpful if the lowest part of your house is located below the level of the nearby city sewer mains. Sewer backflow valves are designed to stop both solids and liquids from moving the wrong way out of your sewer main line and into your drain pipes, and can be installed by NJ sewer plumbers into your sewer lateral.
Low-lying areas with plumbing installed are the most vulnerable to sewer backflow. This can mean a below-ground basement, which some homes have in NJ, or a particularly low-lying first floor in a home built on a slope. Sewers often back up because of materials like paper products, grease and sludge, or tree roots clogging the pipe and stopping water from flowing in the right direction. With nowhere else to go, it comes back up through drains.
Why Install a Backflow Valve?
There are plenty of good reasons why you should consider backflow valve installation for your NJ home. Once it’s installed, you can feel at ease knowing that you’re protected from unwanted wastewater intrusion.
Some of the benefits of installing a backflow preventer valve include:
- Prevent costly water damage. The price of a backflow valve, plus professional installation, is a one-time cost that’s far less than what you might have to spend in the event of sewer backflow and resultant flooding. Water damage can cost hundreds or thousands to repair, and the damage may or may not be covered by your homeowner’s insurance policy. Sewer backflow valve installation is a worthwhile investment to avoid the cost and hassle of flooding later.
- Stay up to code. In some areas with low-lying homes or buildings, you may actually be required by local codes to install a backflow valve.
Sewage Ejector Pumps: Protect Your Basement Plumbing
Sewage ejector pump installation is a must-have if you’re furnishing or remodeling a basement in your NJ home. If you’re going to have plumbing in low-lying or underground basement areas, you’ll need an ejector pump to force wastewater upward through drain pipes, against the force of gravity. In most areas of your home, wastewater pipes naturally flow downward into the sewer main line. With basements or low-lying first floors, the water needs some extra help to avoid backflow.
A good ejector pump will help prevent both liquids and solids from going the wrong direction through your drain pipes. At regular intervals, the pump forces water out of the basin, sending it safely into the main sewer line. At A1 Sewer & Drain Services, we provide ejector pump installation in NJ, as well as ejector pump repairs for wiring problems, faulty float switches, and other problems.
Prevent Basement Flooding with Sump Pump Installation
Basement sump pump installation is another way to prevent your home from flooding through drains and plumbing pipes. There are several different styles of sump pumps available, including emergency backup sump pumps designed to work when the power fails during heavy weather. Sump pumps can help protect you from basement flooding during severe weather, burst city water mains, and other emergencies when excess water is likely to enter basement drains and cause flooding. Because basement flooding can damage your foundation, it’s important to protect this vulnerable area of your home against water damage.
