What Is Backflow?
Backflow occurs when clean water meets wastewater in your plumbing, and the mix flows back up through your pipes. Since backflow reverses the usual course of the water, residents are at risk of using contaminated water that could cause harmful side effects and hurt your health.
Don’t ignore the following red flags that could signify a backflow issue:
- A rotten-egg or a sulfur smell
- Discolored yellow water
- Bad tasting water
- Water with visible particles or sediment in it
If you see any of these warning signs, call Prime Plumbing right away for testing. Ignoring the signs of backflow puts you in violation of Maryland law, and make your family sick. Prevent these risks and get annual backflow testing.
Why Do I Need Backflow Device Testing?
Preventing backflow not only keeps you in compliance with Maryland laws and your family safe, but it could also save your home from water-related catastrophes. Backflow can corrode your pipes, causing costly repairs, leaks, or even floods.
Backflow testing gives you peace of mind and prevents more extensive problems from cropping up down the road. It’s simple, takes less than half an hour of your time, and can keep you from accidentally ingesting contaminants or foul water.
How Can I Prevent Backflow?
Although unpredictable emergencies can cause backflow, there are plenty of ways to prevent it. Prime Plumbing’s specialists install and repair backflow devices and prevention that shield you from most accidental backflow issues.
Get your backflow device checked regularly, and call in the expert team at Prime Plumbing if you have a burst pipe or a persistent clog that won’t go away.
If your city is doing work on the sewer lines, or you have a water main break, backflow may occur. When you suspect a backflow issue, call Prime Plumbing. We will assess the situation and make sure that you’re up to code and drinking safe water.
How Does Backflow Device Testing Work?
To fully assess your backflow device, the Prime Plumbing team needs to shut off your water and run several diagnostic tests of your backflow device. Testing usually does not take more than 30 minutes, and your water should be up and running soon after that.
Our skilled technicians are on hand to answer any questions that you might have about backflow device testing or other plumbing services during the appointment, or afterward.
We take our commitment to excellence and customer service seriously. We are confident that you will be fully satisfied with your service.
