How Backflow Prevention Works
A plumbing system is divided into freshwater and wastewater sides. At cross-connections, it’s possible for pressure on either side to draw wastewater into the freshwater and lead to contamination of the local freshwater supply. A backflow preventer works as a one-way valve to stop this: it closes in case water attempts to move the wrong direction.
Are You at Risk?
Not all homes have backflow prevention devices because they don’t have cross-connections where sewage water can push over into the freshwater side. However, if your home use a sprinkler or irrigation system, you may be at risk for contamination and need a backflow preventer. When it’s time for backflow prevention testing, you’ll receive notification from the city. That’s the time to call our plumbers.
Why You Need a Professional
Only a licensed plumber can perform backflow prevention testing to certify that it’s working correctly. If the backflow prevention device does not pass the test, a professional can then take care of whatever repairs or replacements are necessary to ensure your fresh water supply—and that of the neighborhood—are kept safe.
