What Is Backflow & How Can It Be Prevented?
Backflow is the term used to describe the reversed flow of water in a particular plumbing system, which can cause contamination. Before looking at how backflow can be prevented, you need to know how it happens. Sometimes, in the cross-connections of your pipes, the contaminants that have been washed down your drains can get mixed in with your freshwater supply, contaminating your drinking water. Backflow happens most commonly in sinks or bathtubs, but in some more severe cases backflow can affect the clean water in your public irrigation system.
There are backflow prevention devices that can be installed in the cross-sections of your pipes to prevent backflow from happening. Aside from backflow installation, there is another easy way to prevent backflow in your sinks and bathtubs is to make sure the spout of your sink faucet is high enough that the water in the sink cannot flow back into it, even if the water level in the sink is overflowing.
What Does the Backflow Testing Process Look Like?
Because backflow puts your family's safety in danger, we at Yochim Plumbing Services Inc. take our backflow prevention services very seriously. Backflow certification involves testing the backflow device you have installed, to make sure it is working correctly.
First, your plumbing contractor will cut off the water supply to your property. Once the type of backflow prevention device you’re using and the direction of the water flow in your pipes is determined, the contractor will number the test cocks, remove any debris that might be in them, and assemble their adapters. Next, the test hoses are attached. If, after this point, water leaves the relief valve, the first check valve will have to be cleaned again. The test will be repeated until the contractor is satisfied that all the machinery is working properly.
