Backflow is what happens when the water pressure of your home’s plumbing drops below the pressure at the mains. It’s most likely caused by a drop of pressure, or because of a problem or a break in the mains. The water in your water supply pipes then flows the wrong way, and mixes with a source of pollution. Whenever this happens, it can contaminate the water and cause harm to people’s health.

You can contact a plumber to install a backflow prevention device to reduce the risk of a polluted water supply. Our skilled plumbers will assess your home or site to work out the needs of your backflow containment. It’s not always easy to determine the problem or to tell when it’s happened, that’s why you need an expert’s opinion.

The easiest way to prevent backflow in your water pipes is to provide an air gap. This means that there will be an open space between any device that connects to a plumbing system, such as the faucet or valve, to prevent any water collecting anywhere. Another option is to ask your plumber to install a specialised backflow preventer in your water system. These mechanical plumbing devices are made to prevent water from flowing backward into the system.

A plumber will be able to know exactly where he needs to strategically place them in your plumbing system and to determine where there is a possible risk of unclean fluids entering your water supply. If your backflow preventer system is correctly installed you can rest assured that dirty water will not flow back into your water supply system.

These backflow prevention devices are mechanical units that have internal seals, springs and other parts that can break or get damaged. It’s therefore important to get a plumber to check your water supply system and inspect backflow prevention devices at least once a year.
