What is backflow?
Let’s just say backflow is not desirable in any way, shape or form. Backflow occurs when there is a reversal in the normal flow of water, which then triggers water flow back into the water pipes. This is a serious health risk increasing the risk of contamination. For this reason, building codes mandate that a series of measures and backflow prevention devices are installed and maintained to prevent backflow.
What causes backflow?
Backflow is caused when water pressure is higher than the water pressure at the main or if there is a drop in the pressure at the main. Backflow devices ensure that water supply remains free of pollutants and contamination.
Our team of IQP licensed plumbers guarantees that your backflow prevention testing, problem diagnosis, installation and repair maintenance needs are all in check with current compliance and a high standard of ongoing quality.
