What should concern me most about my home during heavy rain fall?

During major downpours, wastewater from city sewers can flow back up into your home through drainpipes – especially with aging infrastructure. This can then cause overflow in appliances like your dishwasher, washing machine, sinks, toilets, showers and laundry tubs.

A properly installed backwater valve prevents sewage backup from entering water outlets in your basement or storage area during storms.
