Discover the Ins and Outs of Backflow
Before diving into the unique approach Wolff Heating, Cooling and Plumbing takes toward solving backflow issues, let’s first explore what backflow is. Backflow is a plumbing problem when water flow reverses direction, potentially causing contaminated water to enter your clean water supply. This severe issue can jeopardize the health and safety of your family or employees.
We recognize that backflow problems can happen unexpectedly, leaving you vulnerable. That’s why we offer a prompt and efficient response to your backflow needs. Our mission is to ensure your water supply remains untainted and safe for consumption.
Backflow Troubles: Identifying the Hidden Causes
Identifying the causes of backflow issues can be complex. The hidden culprits behind backflow incidents often go unnoticed until it’s too late. In our dry and windy climate, the risk of contamination is higher than in many other regions. Some common causes of backflow include:
- Cross-Connections: This occurs when a direct link between a potable water supply and a non-potable source exists, allowing contaminants to flow backward into your clean water.
- Pressure Changes: Sudden changes in water pressure, such as those caused by water main breaks or firefighting activities, can disrupt the flow and create opportunities for backflow.
- Back Siphonage: This happens when a vacuum or low pressure in your plumbing system pulls contaminated water back into your clean water supply.
- Back Pressure: This occurs when a higher pressure source forces contaminated water into your clean water lines.
- Irrigation System Issues: Poorly installed or unprotected lawn irrigation systems, especially when hoses are submerged, pose a backflow risk.
- Faulty Prevention Devices: Malfunctioning check valves and backflow prevention devices can compromise their protective role.
