Backflow Inspections in Maryland, Delaware & Pennsylvania
Water that’s unsafe to drink or use in your home isn’t always a murky red or brown color, and it might not have a foul smell. In the case of backflow, non-potable water is diluted with potable water, so it can appear clean and safe. That’s why routine backflow inspections are essential to any home’s maintenance routine.
Service Today Heating, Air Conditioning, Plumbing and Electrical’s highly trained technicians offer reliable backflow testing services for homes in Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. We’re never closed, so you can depend on our team 24/7 for plumbing emergencies like backflow issues.
What Is Backflow?
Backflow is when water flows in the wrong direction through your plumbing and enters your home’s drinking water supply. Non-potable water mixing with potable water is usually caused by a pressure change in your pipes after a water main bursts, pipes freeze, or multiple fire hydrants are used simultaneously. Used water from your home’s plumbing fixtures or appliances could be directed back into your home under these circumstances.
Here’s the good news — every home is equipped with a backflow prevention device that prevents used water from your sewer system and other sources from contaminating your home’s drinking water.
However, this equipment can fail. Backflow inspections are necessary to ensure that the device is functioning and your potable water is safe to consume.
What To Expect During Backflow Testing
At a backflow testing service appointment, an experienced Service Today technician will check your plumbing system for signs of leaks, water flowing in the wrong direction, and low water pressure.
Next, they will test your backflow prevention device. Our technician will use special equipment that hooks up to backflow prevention devices to assess all valves and ensure they’re effective.
If the Service Today technician finds any issues with the device or surrounding pipes, they will present all of your repair options with upfront pricing so you can make an informed decision.
