Preventing Waste Water Infiltration (Backup)
Blockages, flooding, heavy rainfalls, and problems with the city's waste disposal drain system (over which you have no control) can cause enough pressure to push waste water (sewage) into your building instead of out of it.
A backwater valve is a one-way valve that prevents a "back flow" of waste water into your property from the city's sewers. Backwater valves (also known as backflow preventers) must be inspected and serviced annually (once per year). Although these valves are required by law on every installation below street level, there are still many buildings that do not have a functioning backwater valve or that have valves that have not been inspected for many years.
At Abe Cohen Plumbing and Heating Inc., we are a three-generation family business with more than 50 years in the plumbing trade. We consider our customers to be family and friends in a long-term relationship with us. We have the experience, expertise, tools, and equipment to install backwater valves and to perform annual inspection, maintenance, or replacement in the greater Montreal area. We are respectful, clean, and professional. We are certified and active members of CMMTQ (Corporation des maîtres mécaniciens en tuyauterie du Québec), ACQ (Association de la Construction du Québec), and certified partners of Énergir for natural gas piping and installations.
