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 professional help. If you are concerned about your system being contaminated, Dependable Service is here to help with professional backflow testing and detection, as well as effective prevention services.
What Is Backflow?
Backflow is a problem that occurs when the flow of water in the pipes is reversed. This can allow contaminants, sewage, and anything you may have flushed away or washed down the drain to enter the water you use, which could make you or other members of your family sick.
Common Causes of Backflow Include:
- Having a water system supplied by a well
- Line flushing
- 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’s 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
