Winnipeg Plumbers Urge Fitting Backwater Valves to Avoid Toilet Blast


While the above incident in Beaconsfield may be considered a one-off, Winnipeg plumbing companies say a good backwater valve can prove instrumental in preventing a surge of water or solid waste along the plumbing system from entering your local plumbing, especially during heavy rains.
