Sewage can be an unpleasant side effect of flooding, leaving homes damaged and unsanitary. Excessive amounts of rainwater entering sewers can even cause flooding, which becomes severe in extreme weather events. This is especially common in built-up areas, where drainage systems can be easily overwhelmed. However, with the right preventative measures taken, you can ensure that your property remains sewage free during flooding. Our professionals at Stormguard Floodplan will survey your home and sewer system before implementing the most effective prevention method, to give you peace of mind.

Innovative Permanent Solutions

One of the simple prevention methods that our experts can offer and install is a Flap Valve. This is a 110mm thick piece of piping that is fitted onto the used water pipe which leads away from a property. The innovative flap mechanism lets used water flow away from the building, without allowing overflow water from flooded sewage pipes back into your home. Once a Flap Valve is installed by our team, it offers a permanent solution in protecting your property from sewage and waste water.

Ongoing Flood Protection

Our other popular sewage protection mechanisms are Backwater Non-Return Valves. Available in 32mm, 40mm and 50mm sizes, these are used to prevent any sewage back-flow through your sinks, dishwasher, and shower outlets. For those who have recently suffered from a flood, it is vital to ensure that you have ongoing flood protection during the clear up process, to prevent these appliances from backing up. By installing a non-return valve, the flood water is unable to go back inside your property and protects your home from any sewage.

In addition to preventing sewage water from entering your home, both of our innovative sewage protection systems at Stormguard Floodplan will stop any noxious fumes released by the sewer system, as well as preventing any vermin entering your property via the drains.
