Protect Your Basement this Spring

Are you looking for the 311 on protecting your basement from flooding during severe weather?  Hopefully we can resolve most of your questions and concerns here.

Sump pumps may not be the be-all end-all as all machines are capable of breaking down. Installing a backwater valve might be an invaluable investment.  Sewer backflow can be disgusting and an experience you never want to deal with twice.  Derksen Plumbing can install a backwater valve before severe weather such as heavy rains, cause serious damage.  A backflow valve is typically required in older homes as it became mandatory for new construction in 1979, and sump pumps in 1990.

The City of Winnipeg has a basement flooding protection subsidy program that helps homeowners protect their basement from flooding.  For the complete details and conditions and application form, please visit the 311 City Services page, click here.

If you need help with installation or service and repair of a backwater valve, or sump pump, Derksen Plumbing can assist you. Connect with us today via email or call us at (204) 944-3444.
