What Is Backflow?
One of the most hazardous plumbing issues is the occurrence of backflow, a major problem that results when there is a large imbalance between the pressure in the municipal water line and the pressure within your own plumbing system. The consequences of backflow include dirty, contaminated waste flowing back into the pure water supply of your system as well as the rest of your community, spreading dangerous diseases.
The two primary ways that backflow occurs includes:
- Backpressure – When your own water pressure reaches levels higher than the city’s water line pressure, the water is pushed in the wrong direction, and dirty waste infiltrates the supply of pure water.
- Back siphonage – This situation occurs when the water pressure is far too low, creating a vacuum that sucks in contaminated water. While it is an opposite occurrence to that of backpressure, both result in the same disastrous effect.

To protect your pure drinking water, as well as the potable supply of the rest of your community, it is crucial to have a well-working backflow prevention assembly device securely installed on your property. There are several devices which can accomplish this, ranging from air gaps to reduced pressure principle assemblies, double check valve assemblies to barometric loops. Other options include vacuum breakers, like the atmospheric vacuum breaker or the pressure vacuum breaker.
Regardless of which device works best for your property, it is important to not only have a secure installation but reliable and regular maintenance. With our scheduled backflow inspections, we can ensure that any minor issues are quickly repaired so that you are never in danger of being exposed to harmful backflow.
