Backflow Prevention Services
Having contaminated water back up into your water supply is at minimum a hassle, and at its worst a significant health hazard. Soap bubbling up in your sink when you run the dishwasher, sewage backups during rainstorms, or garbage disposals backing up into the other side of your kitchen sink are all backflow-related issues that can lead to contaminated water supply.
At Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling, we provide comprehensive backflow prevention solutions to help with these problems and keep your water supply safe and healthy. We’ll assess the extent of the problem, locate the areas where backflow is occurring, and provide effective, lasting solutions to help keep your plumbing system running smoothly.
Importance of Backflow Testing and Prevention
Backflow consists of any type of undesirable reversal of water from contaminated sources back into the potable water system. Plumbing systems typically maintain high pressure to flow properly, but this pressure can sometimes drop due to frozen pipes, water main bursts, or other issues. When water pressure declines, there is the potential for contaminated water to flow into the system. Contamination can come from liquid, gas, or suspended solids, all causing problems in the water supply and likely leaving it unsafe to drink or use.
To prevent this backflow contamination, our team at Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling utilizes devices that interrupt the possibility of contaminated water flowing into the potable water system. Using an air gap between contaminated water and the system or a specialized backflow prevention device, our team heads off the potential for backflow into your potable water, keeping your water supply clean and healthy.
One of the tools we use at Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling for backflow prevention is the Suds-N-Flood Tamer. Created by the father of Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling’s owner, Andy Baumbach, this tool is cost effective, easy to install, and maintenance-free. It prevents suds and drain sewer water from backing up, with options for sinks, floor drains, and toilets.
All these issues and more can be addressed with the Suds-N-Flood Tamer or other backflow prevention services from our team at Baumbach Plumbing & Remodeling. Whatever plumbing problem you’re dealing with, our team will come out and perform backflow testing to assess extent and cause of the problem. Our licensed plumbers will then provide effective backflow prevention solutions, helping keep your water safe and healthy.
