    Someone re plumbed a back water all looks real good except that it's a manual valve...completely pointless..what are you going to do drop a ladder in the flooded pit and turn it off by hand?? Idk what's wrong with people. .I'll be installing a automatic gate ..this blows my mind

    Isn't there an automatic flapper in that gate backwater valve as well? All the ones I have serviced in basements have a brass swing gate in them. Now for someone to waste the money on that valve for a flood control is beyond me.
