Healthy, safe water is a necessity in your home. From drinking and cooking to showering and more, you rely on the water in your home for all sorts of needs.
Backflow preventer systems are designed to protect your household water supply. They do this by keeping contaminated water out of your incoming fresh water supply. They also keep “gray” (used or contaminated) water in local homes from backing up into the city water supply.
Backflow preventer devices are one-way valve assemblies installed in your home’s pipe system. The one-way-only water flow avoids backflow and mixing of non-potable, contaminated wastewater into the fresh water supply. And they don’t affect the rate at which water flows.
If you end up having water flow or water pressure problems, we can quickly diagnose and fix the issues to restore your water pressure services.
Backflow preventer systems are generally best whenever:
If you’re wondering whether it’s time to upgrade your backflow preventers, be on the lookout for these common indicators you need replacements.

We recommend that backflow preventers be installed anywhere there is a possibility of cross-connection between incoming fresh water and contaminated wastewater.
The specific points where backflow could occur are different in every home, depending on the specifics of a home’s pipes or sewer line system. An initial backflow inspection by one of our experienced plumbers can be incredibly helpful to identifying these points and making the right upgrades to your plumbing system.

Why Replace Old Backflow Prevention Systems?
Once we assess your pipe configuration and any existing backflow preventers, we can repair or replace defective systems, as well as install additional devices where needed.
Typically, it is best to replace the entire backflow preventer system at one time to ensure that all equipment is properly integrated and to make future repairs or replacement simpler. Sourcing parts for older systems can be difficult, time-consuming, and expensive, so new anti-backflow systems tend to make good economic sense for homeowners.
We recommend a new backflow prevention system with stainless steel backflow valves that meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) lead-free requirements (and have no epoxy that could flake off).
Steel backflow assemblies are also lighter in weight for ease of use and corrosion resistant to provide a long service life. Future repairs to newer steel systems are often cheaper than old systems, typically involving inexpensive parts, like rubber gaskets. What’s more, new backflow systems are specially engineered to operate efficiently and last longer.
