Mainline extendible backwater valve

The Straight-Fit extendible backwater valve series from Mainline Backflow Products is available in 4- and 6-inch diameters. Made of PVC and ABS, the valve body can be extended to any depth by gluing a riser pipe into the valve body. The gate is glued to a 3/4-inch PVC pipe to form a key and cut the required length to extract the gate from the valve body. A curved gate allows a sewer snake to feed and retract without catching on the gate. A cleat insert in the body eases and guides the retrieval of the snake without hanging up. An optional test gate can be used to pressure test the system or to isolate the property. 877/734-8691; www.backwatervalve.com.
