Reasons for Backflow Testing
Backflow is a plumbing condition where the water inside your pipes reverses its flow, and starts traveling in the opposite direction. Backflow becomes a possibility when the water flow inside the house is interrupted for some reason. When this happens, sewage and dangerous chemicals can enter your plumbing system, making the water undrinkable and even unusable for bathing.
Backflow Testing 101
When you call for professional backflow testing, one of our technicians will visit your home and conduct a test to determine if there have been any changes to the water flow inside your pipes. Any debris inside the pipes is cleared away and a thorough test of your water is done to ensure there are no contaminants. If your water is found to be safe, we will reassemble your backflow prevention device and you can resume using your water. If there are contaminants in the water, we will begin the process of removing them and getting your plumbing system back to normal.

Backflow Is a Serious Issue
Familiarizing yourself with the seriousness of backflow is important if you want to ensure your household water remains safe at all times. You don’t have to be an expert to be aware, and awareness of this issue may give you a heads up if you end up with a backflow problem. If you know enough to call for help and get your water tested, you just might avoid having parasites, bacteria and other dangerous organisms in your household water, which is what it’s all about.
There are more than 100,000 instances of backflow every year, which is high enough to warrant every homeowner having his or her water tested at the first sign of a water flow interruption. Having a backflow prevention device installed as part of your plumbing system is also a wise decision, because then you’ll have extra help to keep this hazard under control.
