The water that comes through the public water system gets treatment before it reaches your home. However, this water can still come into contact with contaminants before it reaches your home. One of these ways is through backflow. Backflow can cause health problems for you and your family. That’s why at Stewart Plumbing, we offer backflow testing, prevention, and certification. If you get our help, you’ll be certain that your drinking water will be safe.
What causes backflow?
Backflow usually happens because of changes in your home’s water pressure. Events like the water main breaking can cause a sudden and extreme drop in your plumbing’s water pressure. The drop can reverse the flow of water in your pipes, creating a powerful suction that can draw in contaminants. Another way backflow can happen is because the pressure in your plumbing pipes exceeds the pressure in the drinking water system. This causes the drinking water to reverse the direction of its flow through the cross-connection between the two systems. The reversal can also allow contaminants into your drinking water. Both of these methods can even get contaminants into the public water supply.
Backflow identification, prevention, and certification.
When you call us for backflow help, we help you find the problems that can cause backflow. Our professionals are certified to help you find ways to protect your home. One of the best options is to get a backflow preventer, which only lets water flow one way. They’re highly effective at the cross-connections where backflow could cause contaminants to get into your drinking water. With our certification, our employees can help you properly install a backflow preventer.
Backflow prevention devices are very important for protecting your drinking water and the public supply. Some municipal governments require businesses to get annual backflow testing. The city service offices also require those test results to get updated annually.
