Markham Flood Control Program Rebates
Severe weather events are capable of overwhelming the Markham sewer system. This causes basement flooding resulting in property damage in addition to financial and emotional turmoil. Under heavy rainfall conditions, home flooding occurs in a number of ways:
- Direction connection of City sanitary of storm sewers. As these systems fill up they can overflow back into your home.
- Blocked or damaged sanitary or storm pipes between the home plumbing and City’s sewers leading to backing up and flooding your home.
To help reduce flood damages the Markham City Council approved a Private Plumbing Protection Rebate Program which financially supports homeowners who install flood protection measures. Now, the City of Markham is offering rebates for older homes that have suffered basement flooding or are in high-risk areas. Property owners who install protection measures are eligible to receive City rebates, up to a maximum of $5,000 if they are eligible.

Markham Drain Contractor
Regular drain cleaning can prevent many serious problems in your plumbing and in your home. If you suspect a clogged drain, call us right away for a thorough drain inspection and cleaning. Drains that aren’t cleaned regularly can back up and cause overflow water damage, mold, and other problems in your home that can be expensive to fix.
Not sure if your drains are starting to clog? When you notice things like water flowing back into the sink after you’ve rinsed the sink, or water draining very slowly in the tub or shower, or puddles of water near the dishwasher or the washing machine it means there is a clog in the drain somewhere.
Call one our customer care representatives immediately so that we can schedule drain cleaning and take care of that clog before it becomes a serious problem.
We Solve Clogged Drains
Clogged drains are not always obvious. That’s why getting regular drain cleaning is a good idea. Regular drain cleaning will prevent any clogs from forming so that you don’t end up with a burst pipe, water leak, or any other problem.
When our trained technicians clean your drains they also will inspect your plumbing using the latest drain camera to get deep inside the plumbing to look for leaks or clogs so they can be fixed before they cause a serious plumbing emergency.
Markham Water Service Upgrade
Upgrading your water service can really transform your home. Our professional plumbers can perform a water service upgrade on your home to improve water pressure and overhaul your current plumbing.
Fix Water Pressure Problems
If the water pressure in your home is not what it used to be, we can investigate and find the underlying cause of the issue. It could be that sediment in the water pipes is blocking the flow of water into your home.
Prepare For Home Upgrades
If you are planning an extensive home renovation that will include adding bathrooms or upgrading your existing bathrooms, it’s a good idea to schedule an appointment for a water service assessment and upgrade. Modern bathroom appliances like jetted tubs and fancy multiple jet showers require a lot more water pressure and upgraded plumbing in order to work properly and many older homes just don’t have the right plumbing to support those kinds of upgrades.
Call us and we will assess your current plumbing and tell you what kind of upgrade you need in order to carry out the plumbing upgrades of your dreams.
Markham Backwater Valve Installation
A backwater valve can solve many basement flooding problems. If you have noticed water in your basement or if you have had a flood in the basement before, you may be a good candidate for a backwater valve. A backwater valve will prevent sewer water from backing up into your home or your yard.
During the rainy season and the winter in our local area excessive water runoff can cause sewer water to flow back through the drainage pipe in your home. That can flood your basement or allow water to seep into the foundation of your home. Once water starts getting into the foundation of your home it can start to cause small cracks, especially during the winter when that water freezes and expands inside the foundation of your home. Over ground water can seriously weaken the foundation of your home.
Luckily, you can prevent flooding and foundation damage just by getting a backwater valve installed. A simple process will save you a lot of heartache, time and money down the line.
We are experts at installing backwater valves, especially on older homes. Call one of our friendly customer service reps today to discuss your home and your unique plumbing needs. Our technicians will be glad to come out and talk to you about your specific plumbing problems and the best way to fix them.
You can trust our technicians to do the best job making sure that you don’t have to worry about your plumbing instead of just enjoying your home.For plumbing emergencies or for routine plumbing work and upgrades the Markham plumbers of Absolute Draining & Plumbing are here to help.
