What is Backflow?

roto rooter commercial plumbing service backflowPotable, or clean, water flows under pressure through municipal water lines to homes and businesses. Backflow is the reverse flow of dirty water through the clean water lines. Dirty water can be contaminated with feces, pesticides, chemicals, fertilizer, and other hazardous materials, which can result in serious health hazards for residents and businesses if left untreated.

Backflow can occur at cross-connections between potable and non-potable water in any residential, commercial, or industrial system, making regular checkups and cleaning sessions on these systems important in order to prevent these problems. Roto-Rooter experts can treat these problems through installing preventative equipment as well as offering regular evaluations and testing services to assess the integrity of our equipment.

Backflow Prevention

A backflow prevention device most commonly consists of a pair of mechanical check values that prevent dirty water from flowing back into the clean water supply in the event of an unexpected or drastic change in water pressure. If properly installed and maintained, a backflow preventer will keep drinking water safe and free of contaminants. Our technicians can install these devices quickly and efficiently in order to keep your business secure from accidents.
