Backwater Valve Rebate - Toronto Ontario
Protect Your Home From Basement Flooding Damage
The City of Toronto has been hard at work, making improvements to the complex underground plumbing systems and upgrading catch basins, sewers, and underground pipes. However, you should not rely on that alone to protect your basement from being flooded. That’s why we are providing customer with exciting information about obtaining a Backwater Valve Rebate.
The City of Toronto is willing to subsidize your home's flood prevention services by up to $3,400:
- Backwater valve….$1250
- Sump pump……….$1750
Severe weather conditions have been on the increase due to global warming, and that increases the importance of homeowners taking the required actions to reduce the risks of basement flooding.
In order to help property owners, the city offers backwater valve rebates to owners of residential homes who install backwater valves, sump pumps and other flood protection devices on their properties.
To qualify for the rebate, your plumbing contractor must hold a valid City of Toronto plumbing licence for the specific work performed, as different contractors are licensed and eligible to perform different types of plumbing work.

- pipe severance and capping
