• A Quick Look at Backflow Prevention

    Backflow is a potentially dangerous occurrence that can lead to contamination of the public drinking water. Your local water supplier may require you to have a backflow preventer installed in your home’s plumbing system for this reason.  

    Watch this video to learn about the importance of backflow prevention. Any loss of water pressure in your home could allow contaminants, such as pesticides used on your lawn, to flow into the water supply. A backflow prevention system in your plumbing will prevent this from happening.

  • Understanding Back Flow Prevention

    Untreated wastewater contains harmful pathogens and other dangerous contaminants. If your home is connected to the municipal sewer line, chances are that your plumbing system has a back flow prevention system in place. Back flow prevention is designed to prevent raw, untreated sewage water from accidentally backing up into your home’s water line. In the event that your home does not already have back flow prevention equipment, you should immediately contact your plumber to schedule an installation. Without a back flow system, your family’s health and safety could be at risk during the next big storm.
