Residents know that an intricate balance is happening under their feet that allows for safe drinking water with every turn of the faucet handle. However, this doesn’t happen easily. There is an complex system of pressures and valves present, and when those go awry, you could possibly experience backflow.

What is Backflow?

Backflow is the instance in which the water you’ve used flows back into your system. That’s right, it is waste water that doesn’t flush out, but flushes back in. Don’t be horrified – there is a way to combat this. In fact, the method for prevention is actually quite simple. The solution and prevention of backflow all relies on the installation of a non-return valve within your plumbing.

Non-Return Valve

A non-return valve is the ultimate solution to backflow concerns and persistence. A non-return valve, installed by your plumber, keeps water from returning back into your system. It allows water to enter and exit, but it creates a stopper that does not allow water to backflow into your pipes.

Do I Need This?

When you’re considering your plumbing – regular check ups and maintenance – we highly suggest you get backflow testing done. That will help you determine if you need a non-return valve for your pipes. Testing helps homeowners determine if the water they are consuming, using to bath, and using for general purposes is safe to use.

Don’t risk backflow. It is unsafe and not sanitary. We highly suggest you get testing done immediately, allowing your family to consume healthy water. Call Lake Charles Rotorooter at (337) 944-0108 now!
