Backwater Valve Rebate In Mississauga: Are You Eligible?

 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.

Backwater Valve Rebate Conditions

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.

Mississauga Homeowner Pre-qualification

Here are some things we as plumbers will be looking at when assessing your need for backwater valve and your eligibility for the rebate:

“Consider hiring a licensed plumber to investigate your home’s plumbing and assess your downspouts

Questions to ask the plumber during your home's plumbing assessment:

  • What connections are there to my sanitary sewer lines? Are all connections sanitary sewer connections or are there connections from weeping tiles, sump pumps or other sources of clear water? Are there any unknown connections? Ask the plumber to provide a drawing of all connections.
  • Are weeping tiles connected to the sanitary sewer pipe (lateral) downstream of the valve? (If yes, wastewater could be forced into the weeping tiles.)
  • Can the sanitary backwater valve be installed directly onto the sewer pipe (lateral)?
  • Are downspouts connected to weeping tiles?
  • Can all the downspouts be disconnected? Do eaves troughs and/or downspouts need to be rerouted in order to fully disconnect?
  • If not, do I need to install additional devices such as a sump pump and pit to prevent flooding?
  • Should the sanitary backwater valve be installed inside or directly outside the home? (as close to your foundation wall as possible)

Taras from High Park:
"We have a tenant in our basement appartment and have previously done extensive work with other drain companies. I called one of the companies up and they wanted too much for just coming out and inspecting. I remembered Dmitry because he did a few other plumbing jobs for me very well. I was pleased to hear that he also does camera inspections. Dmitry removed the toilet and pulled out a mass of roots the size of a 20 pound salmon! Dmitry did the camera inspection which revealed that the pipes were absolutely clean and clear of all roots. So where did the roots come from?..."
