Prevent Backflow Contamination
Protecting your fresh water supply from contamination is a critical part of any water system. This protection is performed by a device call a backflow preventer. When you need backflow prevention maintenance, device testing or installation, you can depend on Grand Lake Plumbing & Heating.
What Is Backflow Contamination?
Backflow is the reversal of the direction of water or sewage due to a reversal of water pressure. This contamination can be limited to your home or extend to the city water supply. And, if left unchecked or not checked in time, the results can be harmful, making you and your family very sick.
Here are the typical causes of how contamination occurs:
- A break in a city water line which could then cause contaminants to mix with the city water supply
- Line flushing and firefighting
- If a well pump shuts off while the end of an attached hose is underwater, even submerged in a puddle on the ground, backflow can suck the liquid backward through the hose into the well
- Water systems that are supplied by wells or come in contact with untreated and contaminated streams or ponds
