Causes of Backflow

Backflow describes as unintended water flow moving in the opposite direction in the pipeline or plumbing system. It could be dangerous because bac-flow can cause contamination of clean water.

 

There could be two types of backflow that you could experience. Especially when there is a link between potable and non-potable water lines:

  1. Back Siphonage
  2. Back Pressure

You could face a back-pressure problem if the pressure of the filthy water source exceeds the pressure of the hygienic water supply. It usually happens due to anything that surges water pressure – pressure boosters, secondary water pumps, industrial machinery, and much more.

The back-siphonage problems occur when the pressure in the freshwater supply usually gets low, which can cause non-potable water to be all sucked backward through house water pipes.

But worry no more! Your right choice is here with the right tools in your hands. So get in touch with us for hassle-free backflow prevention services.

How Can Backflow Be Prevented?

It is easy to prevent simply by creating an air gap (an open-source) between sources of clean water and wastewater pipes. But if an air gap is not applicable or there is not enough space to accommodate an air space, another solution could be a specialized valve. Yes, it could be installed in susceptible locations within the house plumbing system to control the backward flow of dirty water.

So if you are looking for an expert for backflow valve service, then get in touch! Our experts have experience in installing all valve types.
