Understanding the Dangers of Backflow
Backflow refers to water that travels backward through a pipe. It occurs when there is back pressure or siphonage within a piping system. This can lead to water contamination that can cause sickness and health problems to those who consume it.
How to Prevent Backflow
The surest way to eliminate backflow is by removing all cross-connections in a plumbing system. A cross-connection is any point in a plumbing system where the potable water supply connects to a non-potable source.
In the event that removing cross-connections is not possible, it is crucial to install a backflow preventer. This device creates a barrier that prevents backflow from occurring, therefore keeping your water safe from contamination.
There are multiple types of backflow preventers, including:
- Pressure vacuum breaker
- Reduced pressure zone
- Double check valve assembly
- Atmospheric vacuum breaker
- Chemigation valve
- Air gap
There are several factors to consider when selecting a backflow device. The type of device you require depends on the kind of backflow situation you need to prevent. Our Ottawa backflow prevention expert technicians will be able to help you identify which backflow prevention device is best for your situation.
Backflow Preventer Installation & Testing
To ensure the correct installation of your backflow prevention device, it is important to hire a licensed plumbing contractor. A device testing should immediately follow the installation and then annually after that.
Whether you are looking to install a new backflow preventer, or test your current device, Safari Plumbing is your go-to plumbing company. Look at our testimonials and see what everyone is saying!
