Types of Backflow Prevention Devices
Backflow prevention devices help safeguard against backflow and prevent contaminates from entering your water supply. Our professional plumber will ensure that the right type of backflow device is installed for you and your home to receive clean water. Below we have 3 different backflow prevention devices that we can help with.
Reduced Pressure Zone Device -
The RPZD preventer is the best for making sure that high hazard water contamination is contained. This sort of backflow can cause severe harm to people.
Air Gap -
The air gap device is the most popular and most common backflow preventer. Our plumbers mostly install these air gaps in residential sinks and bathrooms.
Dual Check Valves -
With dual check valves, these mostly apply to residential homes and can help deter backflow from other cross-connections.
Causes of Plumbing Backflow
If the pressure in your building is greater than the pressure than the distribution system, you could have a persistent backflow problem. No matter the potential cause of backflow into your plumbing system, we can make sure your backflow prevention device is properly installed and functioning the way it should.
Reduced or Poor Water Pressure -
A common cause of plumbing backflow is water pressure being reduced. If your wastewater system pressure or fresh water system drops, it could cause waste material to be forced back up into the freshwater pipes.
Water Main Break -
If your water main breaks or a large amount of water is used for firefighters needing to put out a fire, this can cause a pressure drop and cause your wastewater to suction up into your drinking water system. This is called a back siphonage.
