"Sanitary Backwater Valve Rebate Program"

What financial support will the Region of Peel, ON provide?

The Region of Peel, ON offers a Sanitary Backwater Valve rebate of $700 for eligible Homeowners. 


Why is a Backwater Valve beneficial?

Based on statistics, experts predict that intense rain storms will become more common in the province of Ontario. That being said, Homeowners may be able to reduce the negative impact that can be caused due to the predicted increased rainfall by installing a Backwater Valve. When heavy rainfall is present, various types of basement flooding can occur. A very toxic and hazardous type of flood that can occur in a Homeowners residence is a flood caused by the back up of sewer wastes. 

By installing a backwater valve onto your sewer system you can reduce the risk of a sewage flood from occurring in the basement of your residence. 

It is proven that backwater valves can be an effective way to stop  wastewater from backing up into your basement however, they must be installed properly  and some backwater valves need more ongoing maintenance than others, which is why Canadian Sanitary Systems recommends a backwater valve alarm for the backwater valve. The purpose of a backwater valve alarm is to alert the Homeowner when there is a blockage present; this way the Homeowner can easily clear the blockage so that the valve can operate properly and continue to effectively serve its purpose.

Before installing a backwater valve, the Region of Peel recommends that Homeowners use the guidelines below to make the correct decision for their residence.

Please  review the information listed below to verify the eligibility requirements. One of Canadian Sanitary Systems Valve Locators can assist in inquiring with the Region of Peel to confirm your eligibility for this rebate program.
