Backflow Testing and 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 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

“Dependable Service Plumbing sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –-Bill B.
