Check valve protects buildings from stagnant water from sewage and wastewater pipes. For some types of buildings, the presence of such elements is mandatory. In high-rise buildings, backwater valve installation helps protect the apartment from flooding. For example, if there was a clog in the house, you do not know about it at once, and the tenants will continue to use the sewer. As a result, the sewage will come out on the lower floor. To prevent this situation, you should mount a detail.
During operation, the valve opens and closes under water pressure. With the flow from above, the element opens and closes from below. Therefore, the backwater valve installation detail does not allow wastewater to rise back up in the pipe.
The device unit is made of plastic or metal. There are two spigots – receiving and releasing inside the element. There is a shutoff valve inside the valve, which closes the water in case of a breakthrough. Mainline backwater valve installation is carried out in any position. The main thing is that the arrow coincides with the flow of wastewater.
Every year the climate changes not for the better. In some areas, it gets drier, and in others, it rains. Sewer main drains become clogged with debris, and storm drains fail to do their job. Utilities, for a variety of reasons, do not have time to clean the drains. You can protect your property by installing a special valve.
