1 Introducing The Blokker Why ? Why a Blokker Availability Application Models Available Options Available Comparison Special Features Why? Sewer Flooding Back Water Valve For information on a section click on the box and then advance slides using “Arrow Keys” to navigate. Vent Install AvailabilityReturn Home

2 Preventing Sewer Flooding In Homes and Businesses So, what causes the flooding problems?  Solid materials flowing down sewer lines cause blockages – especially when getting stuck in root balls  Hot fats and oils dumped in sewer lines, solidify and combine with other solid materials in the sewer water to form balls and this creates blockages  Damage to downstream pipelines – for instance pipe damaged by construction equipment blocks pipe flow  Debris swept along with storm water causes blockages in storm water pipelines Blokker Backwater Valve Information Slide 2

3 Main Sewer Line Blockage Residential Example  Obstructions in main sewer line causing sewer water to back up into homes of higher elevation  Blokker Provides protection Blokker Backwater Valve Information Slide 3 Normal Flow Sewer Backup Sewer Lines Obstruction Backwater Flow Blokker Valve

4 Main Sewer Line Blockage Strip Mall / Condo Style Commercial Example  Obstructions in main sewer line causing sewer water to back up into commercial units of higher elevation that have no backwater valve. Blokker Backwater Valve Information Slide 4 Normal Flow Sewer Backup Sewer Lines Obstruction Backwater Flow Blokker Valve

5 How the Blokker Valve Came To Exist SecureLeak Inc. developed, designed, patented, certified and manufacture the Alarmed Blokker Backwater Valve on request of INTAC (previously ING) Insurance Company:  Existing backwater valves were/are not reliable  Leaking under pressure only keeping back solids  Regular Service requirement by Licensed Plumber  No pressure wave protection to prevent valve failure and flooding  Do not comply with Canada Plumbing Codes regarding sewer line venting  Residential sewer flooding causes Billions of Dollars in damage  INTAC required reliable protection and early warning for the home owner  INTAC required a valve with no regular service requirements  INTAC required a product that would minimize their financial liability Blokker Backwater Valve Information Slide 5

6 How the Blokker Valve Came To Exist The Blokker Backwater Valve design parameters were as follows:  Venting of downstream pipelines  Providing sewer line venting as per Canada Plumbing Code requirements  Releasing of pressure waves / surges through vent  Easy installation, straight retrofit, inside or outside building  Alarm warning/monitoring with high sewer line water level  Second alarm warning/monitoring when Blokker Valve closes  No regular inspection / service requirements between backups  Special embedded seal to eliminate leaking at all pressures  No obstructions / transitions in flow path through Blokker Valve  Alarm warning for clogged mechanisms after backup situation Blokker Backwater Valve Information Slide 6

7 How the Blokker Valve Came To Exist The result after many hours of hard work and many Dollars: The Blokker Back Water Valve! CSA Certified, Patents Pending Canada & USA Blokker Backwater Valve Information Slide 7
