Why Backflow Occurs

Although the name may seem self-explanatory, many people are not aware of what backflow is and why it occurs. In usual circumstances, your main supply of water runs in a single direction, where it feeds fresh water to your showers and faucets. Sometimes, however, if there is a sudden reduction in pressure, or if the main line unexpectedly is disrupted, an unfortunate situation occurs where contaminated water is forced backward. 

This may be due to a severe clog in the plumbing line, or when too much water is allowed to flow for an extensive length of time. Regardless of the cause, this surge of wastewater is known as back siphonage or backflow. It is important to speak to professionals as soon as possible to prevent this wastewater from infiltrating your fresh supply of water. 

Dependable Backflow Prevention Device Installations

Backflow prevention devices are supposed to last quite a long time, but there will eventually be a day when you need a new system. It can be difficult to know which option to choose, however, when there are so many choices available. The great news is that you do not have to make this tough decision all by yourself when you speak to a team of knowledgeable backflow prevention experts.

The primary types of devices can be broken down into two categories – atmospheric vacuum breakers and backflow prevention assemblies. Atmospheric vacuum breakers use air pressure as powerful protection against back siphonage, although they are not always the most economical.

The second option of backflow prevention assemblies is also very reliable, but they require lots of testing to make sure the valves and shutoffs continue working.
