FAQs About Backflow Prevention Services
What is backflow and why is it a problem?
Backflow is the reversal of the normal flow of water in a plumbing system. This can happen when there is a sudden change in water pressure, which can cause contaminated water to flow back into the public water supply. This is a problem because it can cause serious health risks to the public.
How can I prevent backflow from occurring in my plumbing system?
The best way to prevent backflow is to install a backflow prevention device, which is designed to prevent contaminated water from flowing backwards into the public water supply. This device is required by law in some areas, and it is always a good idea to have one installed by a professional plumber to ensure that it is installed correctly.
Do I need to test my backflow prevention device?
Yes, it is recommended that you have your backflow prevention device tested at least once a year to ensure that it is working correctly. This is important to ensure that the device is protecting your plumbing system and the public water supply from contamination.
