There are a few things you can do to
make sure the water supply of your home or business is protected, among these are backflow prevention. This is because backflow leaves dirty water in your
pipes. At Reef City Plumbing we offer regular testing and maintenance as well
as backflow repairs in case of an emergency. It’s our job to make sure
your system is working as it should be and your water is protected, saving you
the worry about the cleanliness of your water.
Backflow is essentially when clean, or
potable water changes direction, creating a kind of suction that pulls dirty
water into your clean water and mixes it up in your supply system. Dirty water
is water that could contain dangerous chemicals, runoff from fertilisers and
even human excrement. Wherever there is a cross-connection between potable
water and its dirty cousin, there is a chance of backflow occurring. For this
reason backflow prevention systems are generally required to be installed at
the cross-connections of home, business and industrial water systems.
