How Can Backflow Be Avoided?

A number of simple devices are available that ensure that water can only pass through a pipeline the correct direction.

  • Reduced Pressure Backflow Preventer: A reduced pressure backflow preventer is used to protect water supplies from contamination by controlling the pressure and directing the water flow.
  • Non-Return Valve: A non-return valve when properly fitted ensures that water flows through a pipe in the correct direction, where pressure conditions may otherwise cause reversed flow.

Why Do Backflow Preventers Have To Be Tested?

Mechanical backflow preventers have an internal seal, springs, and many moving parts. Like any tool of this nature fouling, wear, and breaks are possible. Not only are these systems subject to damage but they can also be bypassed. It is necessary to insure they are functioning properly. Sometimes a visual check will do, but all mechanical backflow preventers have to be tested with specialized, properly calibrated equipment. Perry Plumbing Heating & Air has the equipment and prevention expertise to handle your backflow issues.
