Keller abgesoffen 4You’ve seen it on the news more often than you’d like: A storm rips through greater Cleveland, and some unlucky homeowners have raw sewage flowing into their basements from the floor drain.

Let’s face it, you’d do anything to prevent this, wouldn’t you? There is a solution. It’s called a backwater valve.

What is a backwater valve? It’s a device in the water pipe that prevents sewage from flowing back into a home or building. When street sewers back up, it’s possible for the sewage to flow upstream and get into your home. In most cases, the raw sewage will come through a basement floor drain.
