Backflow occurs when your sewer system reverses and water flows two ways which can cause a cross contamination between dirty water and clean water. It is essential that you have a proper drainage system in place to prevent your water source from being contaminated by sewage. You may not realize it, but your home or property has special devices installed to help prevent backflow. However, for your own safety, you should have your water tested regularly to ensure there are no signs of pollution or backflow. It is also generally a requirement of your Tucson water service to have annual backflow testing performed and reported to ensure your potable water supply is not contaminated by grey water sources.
When backflow devices are not properly maintained and begin to malfunction, it can lead to both contamination and lowered water pressure. You may not even be aware of backflow problems until it is too late. Fortunately, our Tucson plumbers have more than 30 years of experience and know exactly what to look for. During the backflow testing process, we can ensure that the device is working properly. If we spot any problems, we can provide you with the necessary repairs or maintenance to get it back in working condition.
