Prevent Basement Flooding
Flood-Guard™ prevents basement from flooding by sealing off water back-up caused by overloaded sewers. Initially, it operates like a check valve, allowing water to flow normally through the drain until the sewer begins to back up. Then the Flood-Guard float rises to seal off the drain opening until the water recedes. A screwdriver and a couple of minutes are all that are needed to install a Flood-Guard. Once in place, it can prevent property damage and a very messy clean-up job. The float model is available for 2", 3" and 4" sizes. For extreme, extended pressure (for instance, where home- made seals have popped out of the line,) the standpipe model is recommended. The 4″ Standpipe Flood-Guard is threaded to receive 1-1/2″ IPS pipe. On the 3″ model, the pipe is slipped through the rubber gasket before the screws are fully tightened. Gaskets are made of molded rubber, and all metal parts are plated or stainless steel. Fill out the form to request more info.
