What Is Backflow?

Backflow results when the flow of water is reversed, leading to the contamination of the water entering your home. Without a prevention device in place, wastewater will enter your home through the plumbing. This can result in unusable water and damage to your plumbing. In the event that your home is struck with backflow, do not use any of the water entering your home and give our expert plumbers a call. We will be able to assess the situation and determine the best solution to restore the flow of water to your home.

Effects of Backflow 

The plumbing in your home consists of a network of pipes that are usually installed underground. The network uses interconnecting pipes to deliver water to your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, swimming pool, hot tub, and irrigation system. Contaminants that enter one pipe can spread to others in the system, introducing harmful elements into your water supply.

These contaminants generally stem from waste or sewage water. This includes human waste, bacteria, and other impurities that can be deadly to your health if ingested. Without immediate care, this waste can enter various areas in your home and cause significant damage.

Importance of Professional Backflow Testing

Backflow is a very dangerous situation that requires expert care and solutions. As a result of being so severe, getting professional testing is imperative. Once backflow enters your home, the damage can be significant. By testing your system on a yearly basis, you can prevent these issues from ever occurring. When you have a well-maintained and cared-for system, you can save significantly on repair costs.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management requires all installers and testers of backflow devices to hold a license issued by the state.

Eligibility for licensing is earned through an intensive training program that covers:

  • The principles of hydraulics and backflow
  • Cross-connection identification
  • The Indiana code
  • Field test procedures
  • Diagnostics
  • Other complex topics

When we complete an installation or test, we provide a certificate that ensures you of a reliable job that is fully compliant with legal requirements.
