West Palm Beach Backflow Prevention
Protecting You From Serious Messes
Backflow refers to the instances in which water from potentially contaminated sources flows into a clean water supply. Without adequate backflow prevention, you and your family will be susceptible to certain health and safety hazards. Luckily, General Plumbing and Air Conditioning can provide quality backflow testing to determine if this problem exists within your system. From there, we can install backflow prevention devices if necessary. Our certified backflow test and repair specialists have been protecting residents in West Palm Beach and Wellington from dangerous backflow for years and are here to help you when trouble arises.
What Causes Backflow?
Backflow is caused by pressure gradients along a piping system. Backpressure occurs when the pressure in the user system is higher than that of the supply system. That high pressure pushes contaminants back into the water supply. The other cause of changes in water flow is backsiphonage caused by reduced pressure zones in the supply pipes. Non-return valves and reduced pressure backflow preventers can be installed within the system for both backpressure and backflow prevention.
Quality Backflow Prevention Service From Trained Specialists
Like other plumbing system features, backpressure and backflow prevention systems can present problems to homeowners and business owners if left unchecked.
