Backflow Prevention Device Replacement & Installation
Backflow preventers are usually looked at to being serviced at least once a year. These preventers and the process of installation are carried out to avoid toxic containment from reaching your water line. Most backflow preventers consist of a double check valve and four test ports. Your backflow may need replacement if you see any of these potential issues:
- Discoloration (mainly brown or yellow, sometimes pink)
- Slowed down water flow
- Interrupted or halted water flow
- Putrid sulphur smell
- Rust particles visible in water
- Questionable water quality
If any of these issues arise, it may be time to replace your current backflow prevention device. Keeping up consistently with replacing these devices will ensure that backflow will not occur. Backflow preventers are considered a standard for effective modern-day plumbing, and it helps sustain the clean flow of water in your pipeline.
The places we recommended to have prevention devices are the following:
- Garbage Disposals
- Swimming Pools
- Hot Tub
- Faucet with Hose Attachments
- Lawn Irrigation Systems
This should cover all major aspects of backflow within in your home, and Aria Plumbing can help solve any replacement or installations to ensure these devices continue to do their job.
