What is backflow?
Backflow occurs when dirty water flows back into the water lines and contaminates clean water. To prevent this, a backflow prevention device is required. At Raleigh Irrigation Repair, our experts will come out and install backflow prevention devices and/or test current backflow valves.
How often should I be testing my valves?
Backflow valves must be tested annually to ensure they are operating correctly and not putting your water at risk. Annual inspections make sure your backflow valves are in compliance with local codes that require backflow regulation/testing.
How does backflow occur?
Backflow can occur for a few reasons. Most commonly it is due to a higher pressure in your water system than in its supply. However, it can also be a result of the pressure of the supply being lowered. This can occur if the public water supply loses pressure. Hence why most municipalities have codes in place that require backflow prevention devices on your property.
What if I experience backflow?
Not only can backflow contaminate your water but it can also contaminate the local water supply. Therefore, backflow repair is a matter that must be resolved immediately.
