Municipal water lines that malfunction or break down can result in backflow, aka the reverse flow of dirty water through clean water pipes. This dirty water is often filled with contaminants and chemicals like feces, pesticides, and fertilizer, which can cause serious health issues for people who come in contact with them. When faulty municipal water systems connect with “potable,” aka drinking water sources, the backflow damage to your commercial or residential property can be devastating.

Preventing Backflow Damage

While backflow equipment is designed to last for an extremely long time, backflow preventers can still weather serious damage over many years or extreme conditions. While most home and business owners will hopefully never have to deal with repercussions from backflow, there are several factors that may predict an upcoming problem. For instance, whenever local irrigation systems undergo changes, or the water pressure drops or rises, the chance for backflow increases.

You should also be aware of what the water is doing on your property. Any change to water quality can indicate backflow issues, including the taste or smell of your water. Watch out for foul odors or flavors, both of which indicate you should call a skilled plumber to examine your backflow equipment immediately.

Backflow devices that may need to be repaired or replaced include:

  • Pressure vacuum breakers: Pressure vacuum breakers, or PVBs, identify backflow problems and quickly vent contaminated water away from potable water pipes. These units are small and easy to install.
  • Reduced pressure preventers: Reduced pressure systems are designed to leak excess water when backflow is discovered to change pressure and stop cross-contamination.
  • Double check valve systems: Double check valve devices include two self-testing, spring-loaded valves designed to stop contamination at the first sign of backflow.

At Aztec Plumbing & Drains, our goal is to prevent backwater from ever affecting your home or business. To ensure this happens, we also offer multiple water filtration systems, leak detection, drain cleaning, repiping options to the Fort Myers area.
