Brenham Backflow Testing & Certification Services

Keeping Your Drinking Water Clean & Safe

When we turn on the faucet we expect clean, safe water to flow out. We do not often think of the process that goes into the transportation of water into and from our homes. A potential threat to safe drinking water is backflow. If you need to have your backflow prevention device tested, contact us at Plumb Level for immediate service. Take a look at our customer reviews to see what your neighbors are saying.

Is your backflow device up to code? Call (979) 200-6674 to work with your Brenham backflow testing and certification experts. Click here to access our latest online coupons and discounts.

What Causes Backflow?

Backflow happens when the water in your pipes starts to flow in the wrong direction, bringing wastewater into your safe water supply. This occurs when there is a difference in pressure between two points in your plumbing and water system. This difference can lead to either backpressure backflow or back siphon backflow.

A backpressure backflow occurs when the water pressure in your plumbing system is greater than the water pressure in the water distribution system. As a result, water from your usable supply is sucked out through the plumbing system.

Dangers of Backflow

Even though a backpressure backflow is not a desirable situation, a back siphon backflow is an even more serious and dangerous scenario. In this particular problem, the pressure from the water coming into your home drops very quickly; this then results in a vacuum. The vacuum causes contaminated water from your system (which is supposed to head out and away from your home) to reverse and flow back into your house. This means that previous wastewater from your sink, shower, or toilet can mix in with your usable fresh water supply.

Backflow can occur wherever there are cross-connections in the water systems. The problem can originate in any of the following:

  • Dishwasher
  • Garbage disposal
  • Toilets
  • Showerheads
  • Faucets
  • Swimming pools
  • Lawn irrigation systems/sprinklers

Preventing Backflow Problems

To make sure you avoid either backflow scenario, you will need a backflow prevention device installed and tested annually. A backflow prevention device prevents contaminated water from mixing with your clean water supply. It is important to have a certified professional install and test your prevention system. This will help ensure that the device is properly installed and approved for use in your town or municipality.

Most municipalities in the United States require a backflow prevention system and have specific guidelines for the device and its installation.

Make sure your backflow prevention device in Brenham is compliant. Call us today at (979) 200-6674 to schedule your next inspection.
