by way of maintaining a working, clean, efficient plumbing system in their
homes and commercial buildings.
What is Backflow and What Stops It?
Backflow occurs when pressure from your clean water system reverses direction,
essentially pulling dirty water that is contaminated with chemicals, fertilizers,
dirt, and even human waste into the clean water. Backflow prevention devices
are required at any cross-connection in your plumbing system, and they
are meant to prevent this cross-contamination.
Backflow prevention devices can be simple or complex, based on the size
of the system and where they are connected, as well as the purpose they
serve. The main component is a “check valve” that prevents
water from flowing backwards, regardless of pressure changes in the clean
If you believe that your backflow prevention system is not working, our
team can inspect and test for contamination as well as test the backflow
prevention devices themselves. It is better to be safe than sorry when
it comes to potentially mixing contaminated water into your clean water
for drinking, bathing, and washing dishes and clothes.
Repairs and Replacement of Your Backflow Prevention Device
If we determine that your backflow device(s) needs repair or replacement,
our team is equipped and trained to make repairs and replace the necessary
parts to make sure that the system works correctly. Because of the complexity
of some backflow assemblies, it is sometimes necessary to replace parts
rather than repair them. If leaks are detected, or the device is old,
it may be necessary to replace the entire unit. Our team will determine
what is the best option for your system and keep you informed every step
of the way so that every decision you make is well-informed.
