The Flood Company has returned to Yorkshire after two days exhibiting at the 2015 Flood Expo at London’s ExCeL where we unveiled our latest product innovation – the Universal Fit Water and Rodent (WAR) Non-Return Valve – the first of its kind.

The WAR valve is easy to fit and can be used on any 110mm/4” clay or plastic pipes. The key benefit of this revolutionary product is that due to its unique shape and design, it can open clear of sewer walls on both straight and bent inlets, making it the World’s first universal Non-Return Valve, designed and manufactured in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. This innovative product offers protection from flooding as well as rodents and noxious fumes and will suit all properties, many of which have not been suitable for the standard non-return valves available.

“Innovation and design is at the core of our business.” says The Flood Company co-founder and Managing Director Luke Ruddiman.

“We have worked with many customers who could not benefit from a non-return valve due to bends and curves in their drainage pipes and this left their properties vulnerable to backflow. I was determined to overcome this issue and worked on the design of the WAR valve over an extended period of time until I developed a design that was truly universal.”

With live product demonstrations and a video animation to showcase the full range of benefits offered by the WAR Valve there was great interest at the Flood Expo from a range of commercial companies who offer services to the public, from drainage contractors to pest control companies.
