What is backflow & how do you prevent it?
Your plumbing system is designed to flow in one direction only. Clean water enters your home from the municipal source or well, and dirty wastewater exits your home through the sewer line. It is essential that this single direction is maintained to keep your water supply safe and healthy. Backflow occurs when the water pressure changes dramatically, causing the water to flow in the opposite direction. Backflow prevention devices are designed to protect your clean water supply in the event of a pressure change.
Signs you may have an issue with backflow include:
- You smell sewage or other bad odors coming from your drains
- You have several clogs in multiple pipes
- Water coming from your taps is dirty looking or otherwise discolored
- You are having water pressure issues
- Your water tastes off or bad
- Drains are moving slowly, are frequently clogged, or have other issues
Backflow problems can present a danger to your health, and backflow plumbing issues should always be taken seriously and handled promptly. To learn more about backflow prevention methods and devices, call our backflow plumbers in Shreveport.
