Over the years many property owners have suffered from back ups around their sewer trap that cause thousands of dollars in damage but would cost a fraction of that to greatly alleviate. One sensible solution is to install a sewer check valve to greatly reduce backwater problems and help stop basement damage and flooding from back ups. Some municipalities require a sewer check valve by code – but NYC does not require a sewer check valve by code at this time.
Recently the owners of Joseph L. Balkan Inc. came across another device in addition to a sewer check valve that can pay for itself many times over in preventing damage from a back up. We now offer a hard-wired sewer alarm that warns of a back up before water is visible and damage occurs.
NYC Sewer Alarm & Spill Monitoring
Professionally installed on a trap, the alarm will forewarn of a back up well before waste water is visible or can cause property damage. The alarm is a unique device that senses pressure inside the trap and sets off a piercing alarm that is easily heard anywhere inside the house. This alarm avoids foul water having to surface before you are aware of a drain line problem.
Joseph L. Balkan Inc. can typically install a sewer alarm for as little as $300.00. The only requirement is that there is a nearby electric outlet near the trap. As always site visits are free and along with no-obligation free written quotes for your alarm, check valve, or for any other sewer and water main service you may require.
