Backflow is the mixing of dirty or contaminated water with clean water. It can happen when there is a sudden pressure loss in water pipes causing the water flow to reverse. Water main breaks or unexpected, high usage that overtaxes a municipal’s system are examples of how it can happen.
To be sure your water supply stays clean and uncontaminated, you should have a backflow preventer installed. This safety device will ensure that your water supply is protected in the event of sudden pressure changes that cause a backflow problem.
It is important to have your backflow device inspected and tested yearly to ensure that it is functioning properly. Incorporating this into your annual building or home maintenance is ideal.
Plumbing Outfitters has qualified, licensed, and trained plumbing technicians available for routine plumbing inspections and maintenance, including backflow testing.
