Backflow Prevention by Admiral Plumbing Services

Backflow Prevention by Admiral Plumbing Services

There is no way to overemphasize just how important your plumbing system is to your everyday life. When you rely upon any system as heavily and as frequently as you do your plumbing system, it only makes sense to ensure that it is in fine working condition. In some instances, the convenience with which you use your plumbing system may be disrupted due to plumbing problems.

What Is Backflow? Why Is It a Problem?

While you may not be familiar with the term backflow, the problem itself remains serious. Homes which are hooked up to a municipal water supply should only encounter that water flowing in one direction. Due to various circumstances, though, including environmental issues or pressure drops in the municipal water supply, it is possible for the flow of water between your home and this system to be reversed. When this happens, wastewater can essentially flow back into your home, contaminating the water in your system and putting your health at risk. This may also occur if you get your water from a well.

What Does Backflow Prevention Entail?

Like any other problem, of course, backflow issues have solutions. In this case, prevention is key: you really don’t want to wait until you encounter the ill effects of backflow before doing anything to protect your home. Backflow prevention methods and devices are required by plumbing codes in many areas for just this reason. One simple way in which to prevent backflow is with an air gap. An air gap is just what it sounds like: a space of air situated between areas where water may collect and the fixtures that feed into or out of the plumbing system. This gap makes it all but impossible for backflow to develop. Furthermore, a device simply called a "backflow preventer" may be installed.
