What does a Backflow Device provide?
Backflow devices are used in plumbing systems to decrease the chances of potable water being contaminated by any debris and/or particles that may gain access into the water and "backflow" into the main water supply. A Reduced Pressure Principle Device is similar to the double check valve but has additional protection for the potable water, which is an extra valve in between the two check valves that will open, releasing the water out of the relief valve port under the device (if it senses one of the check valves is not closing or sealing completely). A Double Check Valve/assembly has two, one way check valves inside, in sequence, that allow supply water to enter but, if working properly, will not let the water "backflow" into the potable water. Both of these devices are testable by test ports on either side of the checks, allowing a backflow tester to test and certify that these valves are working properly. If the devices do not pass the inspection, then it will need to be either be repaired or replaced.
A licensed and certified technician is required to test the Backflow equipment. You can trust Broken Pipe Plumbing to service all your Backflow preventer issues, no matter the size or scope of the issue. We are reliable, affordable and ready to assist you in your next Backflow situation.
