Kessel_Top_whiteWe are all aware that water is a valuable resource and that Rainwater Management Systems are being increasingly specified in many environmentally-friendly domestic and commercial build projects.

But as well as saving water on a daily basis, we also need to be aware of what precautions can be taken for occasions when there is suddenly too much of it.

The lesser talked about phenomenon of Backwater damage is an increasing threat due to global warming. Backwater has always existed, but as the climate changes and sudden rainfall becomes more common, drainage and sewer systems can be overwhelmed, resulting in expensive flood damage.

The Harmer Kessel Backflow range from Alumasc ensures buildings are protected against the costly affects of backwater damage.

Manufactured from robust PVC, the range includes automatic backflow stops which, under normal conditions, allow the free passage of waste water through the system. In instances of heavy rain, flooding or blocked pipes, the valves prevent storm and flood water backing up in the pipes, thus avoiding damage.

Meteorogical experts have concluded that more and more unexpected rainfall is likely in the future, making the installation of Backwater solutions a cost effective method of prevention that would otherwise result in very costly refurbishment.
