Did you know that most municipalities in Canada offer some form of Protective Plumbing Program?
These programs provide grant assistance to homeowners who have experienced a backup of water or sewage in their home. In most cases, you’re eligible for this program if you:
Have had a backup coming from a municipal sewer system in the past
Live in a location that is at risk of a future backup from a municipal sewer system
In most cases, the protective plumbing evaluation is free and there is no cost to apply to the program. If you qualify, your municipal government could provide funding to cover the cost of installing a Backwater Valve.
Contact your local municipality or search their website for “Protective Plumbing” to see what programs are available for you.
Don’t wait for a flood to happen to you. Invest in prevention, not rescue.
