What is Backflow?

The term “backflow” is used to describe an instance in which water is forced backwards through pipes due to some sort of disruptive event. Backflow often results in water contamination as chemicals and external substances are carried back up through pipes where they enter the water supply.

Backflow can be caused by a number of factors. Some examples include:

  • A sudden drop in pressure on the water supply line occurs, allowing fluids to siphon into the water line
  • High pressure pumps connected to the water supply line overpowering the incoming water pressure
  • A break in the water line leads to a drop in pressure and causes water and other contents of the supply line to travel backwards

No matter the reason behind it, backflow poses a serious health and safety risk as unwanted chemicals, pesticides, and other dangerous matter can be carried into the water supply. It’s important to not only have a backflow prevention device in place, but to also make sure that device is working properly to avoid contamination.

Reasons to Schedule Backflow Testing in Austin

Backflow testing is important in order to avoid water contamination and associated liabilities for individuals and businesses.

Some reasons you may want to consider scheduling backflow testing services include:

  • Local laws require backflow testing upon installation and annually thereafter
  • Backflow testing can catch potential problems before they cause serious damage
  • A properly working backflow prevention device can stop water contamination
  • Persons responsible for backflow water contamination face serious consequences
  • Preventing water contamination can protect people from getting sick
  • Ensuring the health and safety of the community is simply the right thing to do

At S & D Plumbing, we proudly conduct backflow testing and certification in Austin and the nearby areas. In Austin, backflow devices must be annually inspected by a trained professional according to local law. If you’re not sure how these regulations apply to your home or business, give us a call to speak to our knowledgeable team.

How Does the Backflow Testing Process Work?

Backflow testing is conducted by inserting a gage into a backflow prevention valve and checking the pressure. This testing must be done by a trained professional who can not only correctly carry out the test, but can also accurately assess the resulting data. With more than 35 years in the plumbing industry, S & D Plumbing can help you with your backflow testing needs. Our team can help you protect against water contamination by ensuring that your device is functioning properly.
