Why Install a Backflow Preventer?

Sewer Backflow Prevention

The occurrence of a sewer backflow comes up when the sewer system of your municipality overflows and sends the water from the sewers back into your building. A sewer backflow can cause a serious health challenge really fast if it’s not managed properly.  It can send huge amounts of water back into the residential or commercial areas if the area attacked doesn’t have a protection device. The sewer backflow has to be immediately managed to prevent the loss of valuable property and an increase in the probability of disease occurrence. There are several ways through which you can prevent a sewer backflow and we’ll identify some of these preventive measures for you. Take out time to study this as it would help you in the long run if you are in area where a sewer backflow occurs.


  • Excess storm/melting snow - after a very heavy storm, there’s a possibility that the sewer system may overflow if it’s not properly managed. The snow and excess rain water which have been pouring into the drain may come back up if a sewer backflow occurs. This experience is what we do not want to occur in your surroundings but in the event it does, get in touch with Aqua Rescue, as we are the best company in the Toronto Plumbing business to handle that sewer backflow problem.

  • Insufficient sewage system capacity - this is a municipality or city problem. This occurs when the population of houses in the surrounding areas is not adequately catered for concerning sewer allocations. Sewers are built to cater for a certain amount of buildings over a specified area, and the city sewer system sometimes have smaller municipal systems that flow into it. This means that an overpopulation of the sewer system allocation for waste management may easily result in the incidence of a sewer backflow. The best way to make reparations to this issue is by increasing the capacity of the municipal/city sewage capacity and the sewage system will have much lesser incidence of sewer backflows.

  • Clogs in the municipal/city sewer pipes - there is a possibility for tree roots to grow enough to be able to block off a municipality or city sewer line. This may take a while to develop, and adequate routine maintenance can solve this issue. How this happens is that wastewater from homes and commercial properties which are supposed to flow through the main line but encounter a clog along the way. This makes the wastewater to travel back into the homes which are connected to that main line. Adequate reparations involve employing a good plumbing company to handle taking care of the mess, and you don’t have to look further than Aqua Rescue, the number one Plumber Toronto service for the best unclogging of any sewer system.

Considerations When Installing a Backflow Preventer

Risks of Backflow Contamination

According to government standards, there are certain risk levels from backflow water which may culminate in emergency measures to salvage the situation. Level 1-2 are mostly considered less risky as the backflow may only contain potable water in different forms; level 3 is a moderate risk level while levels 4 and 5 are designated hazardous for human contact.


  • Preventive Measures against Sewer Backflow - there are some preventive measures you can apply to make sure that your sewer outflow system doesn’t bring wastewater back into your house. These measures may require a technical know-how of the area you wish to reside in, and some expert hands to carry out the work. The technical know-how on the plumbing aspect of your building can be adequately provided for by Aqua Rescue, and we guarantee no issues from using our services.

  • Following Sewer System Flows When Building - it is necessary for building codes to be followed to the letter, and this is very necessary against preventing backwater flow. Sewer systems do not have any transport mechanism; the wastewater finds its way into the sewers due to the pipe settings underneath your building. This means that your sewer feeding pipe must be in the right position for the backflow to stay away from your immediate surroundings. The system you need to install for your sewer needs to be handled by the best in the Toronto Plumbing business, and you already know that’s Aqua Rescue.

  • Install a Backflow Protection Device - a backflow protection device is a simple mechanism which is activated in the event of a backflow mishap in your area. The mechanism works with a shut-off device that can be manually or automatically activated. Backflow protection devices keep the damage far away from your home or commercial building and save you and the occupants of your building from the flooding and disease which accompany backflows.

  • Air Gaps - air gaps are made to contain the effects of the backwater flow by creating a gap between connected plumbing systems and the water outlet. Air gaps are however not as popular as backflow protection devices in stemming the effects of a devastating backflow, but they are equally effective.


Backflows are very unfortunate incidents which can be prevented with the right safety produces and preventive measures in place. The advice we have provided here can only be complete if you get our service professionals to deliver the best Plumber Toronto service you need right now.

I’ve worked with several plumbers before but was thoroughly impressed with the way Igor diagnosed and dealt with the issues I was having. After about 5 minutes he was able to identify the problem and handled everything with the utmost attention to detail. He is very knowledgeable and thorough, and made sure I won’t have any problems in the future. 5/5 stars, I’d give more if I could

Usually to book plumbing excavation work it takes several weeks. Aqua rescue came within 3 days brining 2 heave machines for the dig. They excavated our main drain, replaced and backfilled everything within 2 full days. The prices are also pretty good
