Understanding Backflow and Its Risks
Our team at Drain Doctor Plumbing Specialist values our clients which is why we strongly encourage customers to understand what backflow prevention is and means. If there is not proper protection of sewer and drain pipes through back flow prevention, backflow can contaminate your clean water supply. Backflow occurs when a mixture of water, liquids, gases, and substances reverse and flow into the pipes that distribute your potable water. Backflow can potentially flow back from plumbing fixtures or irrigation systems. If backflow occurs within your pipe system, it will invade your water supply causing serious health problems like disease, illness, and in some cases, death. Backflow prevention is not something to be taken lightly. At Drain Doctor Plumbing Specialist, we encourage our customers to learn about backflow prevention and require its service because your safety should be prioritized.
Types of Backflow
There are two types of backflow that can occur within your pipes system: backpressure and back siphonage. Backpressure is a type of backflow that occurs when the pressure in the downstream piping rises above the pressure of the system. Because of the rise in pressure, the downstream substances are pushed into your potable water supply. Back siphonage is a type of backflow that occurs when water pressure on the supply end drops creating a negative pressure in the supply piping. Back siphonage creates a vacuum that causes the unwanted reversal of water. The most common cause of back siphonage is damage or a complete break to your water main.
Why Backflow Prevention is Vital for Your Residential and Commercial Pipelines
