What is a Sewage Relief Valve?

What is a sewage relief valve?  Last week I blogged on this topic and received a lot of phone calls from people wanting to know exactly what this device actually looked like and how it works.  So I thought it might be a great idea to video what a sewage relief is and how it works.  I had my video department post a video on You Tube on exactly what a sewage relief valve looks like and how it works. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so go ahead click on to this video and see how the valve functions, demonstrated by your Sarasota plumber at Wimpy’s.

It really is a great invention.  If you have ever had a main line stoppage or a drainfield stop working, then you know it could end up with the toilets overflowing onto your bathroom floor and spreading even further.  The flood restoration companies and the insurance companies call this black water contamination.  If you have a sewage pump, it is worth its weight in gold to have one installed. If you’re interested in any variety of sewer services, connect with our team of Sarasota plumbers.

By the way, you may want to check with your insurance company and see how much is actually covered in the event of black water contamination.  My last customer said his insurance company was only going to cover about half of the actual cost of reconstructing the damage in his home.  You can bet he is going to go over his next insurance policy line item by line item.  He has already called and set an appointment to have a sewage relief valve installed in his main sewer line. He called it cheap insurance, that will actually do what it says.

Speaking of actually doing what they say, Wimpy’s Plumbing & Air is well known for saying what they will do and doing what they say.  How many companies, not just Plumbing Companies in Sarasota, actually do what they say?  From my own personal experience, not many.  And if I find one that does, I typically try to stay married to them and recommend them to my friends and customers. Good people, find good people.  Let’s everybody recommend good people.  The kind that say what they do and do what they say!

If you see the benefit of a sewage relief valve, don’t search for “plumbers near me.”  Call our Sarasota plumbers instead to schedule an appointment with Wimpy’s Plumbing & Air
