Backflow preventers keep your drinking water uncontaminated by preventing water from cross-connection points such as swimming pools, sprinkler systems and hot tubs from running backward through your pipes and into freshwater supply.
Thinking of getting one installed? Or maybe you already have one installed, but aren’t sure if it’s still working properly? Call us to schedule an appointment to diagnose your situation.
In the meantime, there are a few signs that could indicate a need for repair, including dripping water or leaks near the preventer, buildup or discharge on the system, pressure fluctuations, or banging sounds in the pipes.
To ensure that your backflow preventer is operating properly, it’s smart to get it checked once a year by a professional plumber. You can’t beat the peace of mind that comes from knowing your family is protected from potential illness from water contamination.
