It has the potential to cause long-term damage to your home and your health.

What is backflow?
Backflow means that the water in your plumbing is no longer moving in the right direction. Backflow can take wastewater or even sewage, and send it back up into your home. The wastewater could pool in your sinks and tubs, or even spill out of your faucets in some cases. Backflow can be caused by several things.
We often see backflow occurring because the assemblies around the main lines of a home fail and permit wastewater to flow in the opposite direction. It can sometimes be caused by a serious clog within the plumbing. Even water pressure issues can lead to backflow in your home.
By having the proper preventive devices in place, your can rest assured that backflow will be prevented in the event of an emergency. Our experts can help you install one of these units in your plumbing system today!
How can this problem affect your home?
When it comes to backflow, there are various effects it can have on your home. The most common symptoms of these issues include:
- Wastewater – The most noticeable way that backflow affects your home is by sending wastewater to areas where it should not be. Backflow can cause sewage or contaminated water to come out of your taps. This can prevent you from using the water in your house.
- Contaminants – If the backflow problem is bad enough, it can overflow and spill onto the floor. This creates a dangerous and unsanitary situation in your house. The germs and bacteria in the water can make people sick or cause overwhelmingly bad odors throughout the house.
- Damage – A final potential issue is that backflow can harm your pipes, appliances, and plumbing system. Excess pressure can be caused by backflow, which can strain all of these systems and eventually damage them.
By having quick response to your backflow issues you can prevent serious damage from ever occurring in your home. Call our plumbing technicians today and get expert solutions to your backflow issues before it takes a toll on your home and health.
What is the importance of testing & certification?
Everyone one of our technicians who works on fixing backflow problems needs to undergo testing and certification. These official programs are meant to teach each of our professionals about the guidelines and concepts behind treating backflow in a home or business. This is important because testing for and repairing backflow issues requires advanced knowledge of the home and often the main lines or municipal systems.
Every one of our service technicians learns the correct way to test the assemblies, diagnose issues, and ultimately repair the problem according to uniform regulations and procedures. Through our professional solutions we are always sure to provide our customers with the very best backflow solutions possible.
