Backwater valve rebate is offered for a limited time by the City of Mississauga where backwater valve installations have been on the rise for the past five years. As homeowners get hit by extreme weather conditions, and become more educated about impact of recent storms on city’s sewer system, they hurry to protect their abodes from devastating events such as sewer backup and basement flooding. Mississauga residents have experienced basement flooding with increased frequency in the recent years. As a response, City of Mississauga introduced this rebate program to help citizens protect their homes.
City of Mississauga is currently offering $700 rebate for backwater valve installation to eligible homeowners. This program will run until December 31, 2016 (applications for work done before Dec 31, 2016 will be accepted till June 30, 2017)
Before you get excited, beware that conditions of this program are different than those of the City of Toronto. For example, City of Toronto would cover almost any professional installation, while City of Mississauga has stricter eligibility criteria.
