Connection to the Existing Sewer Lines
Often we see when weeping tile, downspouts, sump pumps connected to the sanitary sewer line.
We will check and give some options depending on the situation.

Downspouts
What does it mean to disconnect downspouts?
It means on every pipe should get caped when it enters the ground and water redirects from the City storm mainline away from the house foundation on lawn or garden. Away from neighbors, driveways, sidewalks as it makes create a slip hazard.
We will access your downspouts and eavestroughs to check if they are connected to the weeping tile if so, we get them disconnected if possible, and rerouted.
If disconnection is not possible, the homeowner has to sign Acknowledgement and Release section of the Application Form.

Battery Backup for Sump Pump
Please consider we also do an installation of battery backup for sump pumps. You may need one battery power back up for your Sump Pump during power outages in severe weather conditions.
Your sump pump depends on electricity, and if there would be an outage, your basement is at risk to get flooded. Battery backup sump pump would turn on, and pump out the water if the level of the water starts rising.
BackWater Valve. How does it work in normal circumstances, and Backflow from the City side.
Backwater Valve
A backwater valve or check valve is usually placed at the exit point of the sewer pipe under your foundation. In normal conditions, the valve allows wastewater to flow away from your property through the main drain out to the main sanitary city's sewer at the street. In circumstances when wastewater flows back toward your home, the valve closes and prevents wastewater or stormwater from entering the premises.
However, there are some limitations:
Once the backflow valve is closed (or in check), wastewater cannot flow into the sewer system.

This means that you cannot use water, because it is not able to drain away until the conditions that caused the backflow has been eliminated, and the valve could return to its usual position.

It is possible to install inside and outside close to the foundation wall. We would find the best spot for installation of Backwater valve and give some options if possible.
Once your home has been approved for backwater valve installation, a homeowner is obligated to disconnect all downspouts to receive the subsidy for backwater valve installation.
There is only one backwater valve approved by the city Mainline Fullport Backwater Valve with a transparent cover.
Sump Pump, how does it work? image with the explanation, and quick guide.
Sump Pump
A sump pump is a basement flood preventative device, which should be installed in the lowest point of the basement, below the foundation if possible. It collects all stormwater coming into your basement in the sump pit, and sump pump pumping it outside through the discharge pipe. Submersible sump pump does not clog with small debris and does not require constant attention. Sump Pump works from electricity, has a sealing lead that prevents electrical short circuit; during electricity outages, we recommend to have battery backup sump pump installed that would prevent your basement from flooding.
