Frequently Asked Questions

What is backflow, and how does it happen?

Backflow is water contaminated with human waste. It should flow through your sewer line and away from your home but instead is reversed and enters your clean water lines. This occurs when there is a significant change in water pressure that forces water in the wrong direction.

Common causes of backflow include clogged drains or sewers, damaged fixtures or fittings, broken water main lines, and construction work.

What is a backflow prevention test?

Homes are required to have backflow preventers installed. Backflow preventers are safety devices that are designed to stop the flow of nonpotable water before it can contaminate your water supply. Regular inspection and testing of your backflow preventer ensure the device can work reliably.

Inspection and testing include the gate and relief valves, gauges, and other components. We recommend scheduling a backflow prevention test every 12 months for optimal protection.

How long does a backflow preventer last?

Backflow preventers will wear out over time, and it’s essential to replace them when they are no longer capable of providing dependable protection.

If your unit has leaks, worn-out components, cracks, or other damage, it’s time for a replacement. While all backflow preventers are different, a general rule of thumb is that you should plan on replacing the backflow preventer every five years.
