I`ll never forget waking up to my father swearing incessantly and my mother calling into work because she needed the day off to help bail out the basement. Don`t let this be a memory for your children this year!
With greater than average snowfall this year and a late melt, many homeowners are preparing for the possibility of basement flooding.
"When it comes up, it comes up fast."
Jeff Peel owns Clean Line Sewer and Drain. He says his crews are putting in more sump pumps and backwater valves than usual this year.
"The last time we had a flood, we were doing up to four a day, we're up to about five or six a day now."
The province and city have set aside $3 million dollars in subsidies for both devices. Homeowners can collect up to 60% of their invoiced cost.
Peel recommends you install both - backwater valves only prevent sewer backup.
He says to also make sure you move the snow four feet away from your home, keep your eavestroughs clean, and make sure your sewer lines are clear.
Ask Jeff about available rebates of up to 60% to have backwater valves and sumps installed!Basement Flooding Fears Rise
