Backflow Prevention in JessupBackflow prevention protects your water supply against contamination by stopping reverse water flow from entering your house. Backflow happens when there’s a sudden water pressure drop in the plumbing system, causing contaminated (non-potable) water to flow into the potable water supply. To guard against this, we can install a backwater valve to ensure the water flow remains unidirectional, from the clean water supply to the various outlets like faucets, showers, and appliances. While some appliances have backflow prevention devices built in, installing a main valve for total protection is safer all around.
Why You Need a Plumber for Backflow PreventionYou might be tempted to install a backwater valve yourself, but it’s better and sometimes required to hire a professional plumber, and here’s why.
Expertise: Installing a backflow system to keep your water supply safe is more complicated than people think. Installing, testing, and maintaining these systems require experience and an understanding of local codes and regulations.
Regulations and Codes: Many municipalities have rules and codes governing backflow prevention to ensure a healthy and safe water supply. Plumbers are familiar with the local codes to ensure your system is safe and functioning correctly.
Proper Installation: Backwater prevention doesn’t work if the valve is installed incorrectly. Plumbers have the training, experience, and proper tools to ensure these devices are installed correctly and are in good working condition.
Testing, Repairs, and Maintenance: Backflow preventers require routine testing, maintenance, and repairs to ensure they function correctly to keep the water supply safe. Many professional plumbers offer backflow testing services so you can have peace of mind knowing the system is working.
Backflow Repair: When a backflow incident occurs or a device fails, you need a plumber you can rely on for fast repairs to minimize contamination and restore clean water.
