What is Backflow?
A backflow can occur when clean water flows reverse direction and cause dirty water to be sucked into the clean water system. This dirty water can be filled with fertilizers, harmful chemicals or other waste streams. To prevent this, cross-connection points (where a backflow can occur) have devices installed that prevent water from flowing back into the clean (potable) water system.
What is a Backflow Device?
Backflow devices are usually a series of check valves that prevent dirty water from flowing back into the clean water supply. Reverse flows can occur when there are pressure fluctuations in the water system. Backflow devices can also be referred to as isolation devices, containment devices or RPZ (reduced pressure zone) devices. When properly installed and maintained, these devices help keep your clean water clean. This is important for homeowners and business owners alike to have in place, and our plumbing services can make that happen.
Most backflow systems have to be inspected annually to verify that they are operating properly. If not tested and properly certified, many water authorities can levy stiff fines and impose other enforcement actions on building owners. Avoid the stress! Call our plumbing team today. Let us help you ensure that your system is working correctly.
