Backflow valves – the most misunderstood product in plumbing! What protection does a backflow valve provide? What does it not protect against?
If you are a homeowner, you NEED to watch this video
1) this video depicts drainage system for the city of Regina. Other municipalities may not be constructed in the same manner. Consult with local experts.
2) Backflow valves only protect your home during backflow events.
3) (not included in this video) even during backflow events, it is possible for backflow valves to fail to function properly.
4) when the main trunk under the street is plugged, only workers from the municipality can unplug it. Your backflow valve should protect your home until City workers have unplugged the line.
