Why is Backflow Dangerous?
Backflow is the reversal of water in your residential pipes. It often occurs as a result of reduced water pressure in the home from a power outage or other loss of service. This is especially dangerous because it can cause contaminated water to flow back into your home without warning and without showing many signs or noticeable symptoms.
How is Backflow Detected and Prevented?
Backflow devices are clever systems used to prevent the threat of backflow in your home. In most cases, the device consists of a flap that is installed in your main water line. As long as the water is flowing in the correct direction, the flap remains open. As soon as the water flow reverses, the flap closes over the main water line protecting your home from backflow.
However, there is still the possibility of a backflow device malfunctioning or breaking. This is why it’s important to make sure your device is working properly. If you suspect backflow has occurred, the best thing to do is to call for professional backflow testing and certification.
When the unit is tested, we will temporarily shut off the main water line and use a built-in port on the unit to test and make sure the unit worked as it should. If the system did not work properly, we will flush out your plumbing system until it is clean and safe again, while resetting the device to make sure it’s ready the next time you need it.
