Safeguard Against Issues by Installing Backflow Preventers

Backflow preventer installation is one of the best safeguards in which you can invest. If you already have one installed, maintaining it when a repair or replacement is necessary is easy to do. A&E Anytime Plumbing, Heating & Cooling serves Macomb, Oakland and Wayne Counties by providing professional plumbing for residential and commercial clients. One of the biggest liabilities facing municipalities is backflow, so we offer preventative measures to help you ensure that your water supply is kept safe.

Understanding Common Causes

The more you understand the causes of backflow, the more you will understand how to prevent it. It happens most commonly when there is a sudden decrease in water pressure and the water supply's flow is reversed. What exactly causes the water pressure to drop, though? Here are a few reasons why this might happen:

  • Breakage in the water supply's main line
  • High volume of water released through a fire hydrant
  • Pumping station failure
  • Supply is drained or siphoned
  • Thermal expansion results in increased pressure
  • The end result is contaminated and dangerous water, so if you want to prevent backflow, you should be sure to schedule annual backflow testing and inspections for your municipal water system.

Regular maintenance that is performed by a professional can help prevent many of the circumstances that cause backflow and other plumbing problems. The experts at A&E Anytime Plumbing, Heating & Cooling have the tools to fix this, provide water damage restoration and resolve other common problems.
