Sewage Relief Valves, Wimpy’s Recommends Them.

Bubba Butler, Sarasota Plumber, from Wimpy’s Plumbing

Bubba, the plumber

Sewage relief valves should be mandatory by our Florida Plumbing Code.  Wimpy’s Dependable recommends them.  A Sewage relief valve will do just as the name implies.  Should your main line stop up outside, the relief valve will automatically open , so as to prevent black sewage water from entering your home.

Just this last week, Wimpy’s was called to a very nice home in Sarasota, for a plumbing problem.  The main line had stopped up and some people in the house were not aware of this.  They continued to flush and use water.  The main sewer line backed up and raw sewage came out from under the toilet and over the toilet bowl.  Before they knew it, the flooring and the walls were contaminated.

The owner had to call in a Flood Restoration Company.  The Flood Company had to remove drywall from three rooms in the house, two foot high.  They also will have to replace the wood flooring in the home and some cabinets.  This is going to be very costly and disrupt the home for a while during the drying out process and the restoration.

This homeowner wants a sewage relief valve.  He also wants his plumbing fixed.  He called Wimpy’s Dependable Plumbing, because he was referred by some one who cares about him.  This person referred Wimpy’s, because they exceeded his expectations in the past.

You too, should consider a sewage relief valve.  It could save you a really big headache and avoid a huge mess in your home.  Your home is your Castle.  Protect it and maintain it.  Have your plumbing system evaluated today.  Why risk a back-up?  Thanksgiving is coming.  That means guests.  Can the heart of your home, your plumbing system handle the additional load of more people?

Call 941-322-1911 or schedule an appointment on line at  We would be happy to help you avoid a sewage back up.
