Avoid Water Damage with a Backflow Preventer System
A backflow preventer system is a device that’s installed on your water pipes that allows water to flow in only one direction, preventing drinking water from being contaminated due to backflow. You can think of it as a one-way gate that only allows water into your home’s or business’s plumbing system, but doesn’t allow it to flow backward into the main water supply.

Why Do I Need a Backflow Preventer System?

When water flows back into the main water supply from your home or business it can contaminate the water supply, creating a public health hazard. Backflow can occur when the water pressure forcing water into your plumbing system decreases or loses pressure; this can be caused by a number of things, such as when there’s a break in the line due to freezing or maintenance, or a fire hydrant being opened.

When backflow occurs, it can contaminate the public drinking supply with:

  • Sewage/Human waste
  • Chlorine from pools
  • Soaps/detergents
  • Fertilizers/pesticides


A properly installed backflow preventer system ensures your plumbing system won’t cause a public health hazard.

Water backflow can also cause foundation damage to your home or business, which can lead to a host of structural issues that can become very costly.
