NightEye, we aim to make it even easier to prevent flooding in your home

What’s the Purpose of a Sump Pump?

Liberty Sump Pump and Back-Up Batter and Night EyeIn recent months, many of our clients have taken advantage of the City of Toronto's basement floodproofing subsidy. In the last 10 years, the municipality has invested $37 million toward floodproofing more than 22,000 properties through the Basement Flooding Protection Subsidy Program, which covers 80% of three specific flood prevention devices, including sump pump installation. Now, with the help of NightEye, we aim to make it even easier to prevent flooding in your home.

It is not uncommon for suburbs in Toronto to receive a month's worth of rain in a single week, which often results in basement flooding, and window wells filled with water. Severe weather conditions have been on the increase due to global warming, and that increases the importance of homeowners taking the required actions to reduce the risks of basement flooding. During times of heavy rain, a sump pump can realize significant savings as it prevents costly repairs and damage to walls, floors and belongings.

A sump pump is used to deflect water away from the home, and the subsidy covers up to $1,750 of the sump pump installation costs. 

Perhaps you are eligible for a Sump Pump Rebate? The City of Toronto announced that they will subsidize your floodproofing services by up to $3,400:

  • Backwater valve….$1250
  • Sump pump……….$1750

If you don’t have the above basement flooding and floodproofing devices installed, now is the time to book an evaluation with Hoerner Heating and Plumbing.
