Backflow Testing & Prevention

Backflow is a potentially dangerous problem that can make your water unsafe for your family to drink and bathe in. Unfortunately, determining whether you have a backflow problem in your system can be difficult without help. If you are concerned about backflow in your system, Dependable Service Plumbing & Air is here to help.

What is backflow?

Backflow is a problem that occurs when the flow of water in the pipes is reversed. This can allow contaminants to enter the water you use, which could make you or other members of your family sick.

Many different situations can cause backflow. Some of the most common causes of this problem include:

  • Having a water system supplied by a well
  • Line flushing
  • Firefighting
  • Breaks in city water line
  • Problems with water hoses
  • Toilet flush valves without an anti-siphon device
 

When should I test for backflow?

In general, it is best to have your system tested for problems with backflow at least once each year. You should also test for backflow if you notice any of the following issues:

  • Water appears cloudy or discolored
  • Visible leaks in backflow assembly or discharge
  • Any other problems with your existing backflow prevention system

“I’ve used this company 3 times now, for 3 different problems and was completely satisfied each time, which is really something to say around here. Today they installed a kitchen faucet and replaced an outside hose bib which seemed to be frozen and we couldn’t get it to move. They are highly professional, answering their phones promptly and setting up an agreeable time. They were ON TIME each of the 3 times, worked efficiently, covered their shoes with protective booties, and let me charge it with Visa. The receipt with all the services performed (including any pictures that were taken) was then sent to my email. Great company.” –-Kathy D.
