Backflow Testing, Repairs and Replacement in Memphis

Smith’s Plumbing Services: Your Trusted Professionals

Backflow in your water system is a serious health hazard and must be controlled to prevent the spread of contamination from foul or soiled water in your fresh water supply. The plumbing professionals at Smith’s Plumbing Services can help you make sure that your home or office water supply is not being contaminated by offering backflow testing, replacement of backflow devices, and repairs to your plumbing system. We take pride in offering numerous plumbing services that our customers need, and that improve the quality of their lives, 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 water system.

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.
