How Backflow and Leaks Contaminate Your Water

Monday, March 7th, 2022

Plumbing systems are pressurized and flow in one direction for a very good reason. When water comes into your house from its source and doesn’t come in contact with anything else, then it’s considered “clean” or at least “fresh.” This is an important metric to use, because the moment your water starts interacting with things like infiltrating tree roots, other water pipes, or even it’s own backflow, then you’re dealing with a serious health and safety concern.

If you suspect there’s a leak in your plumbing system somewhere, or you think that there’s a problem with backflow, then we recommend calling our team as soon as possible. We can help install a backflow preventer and even provide video pipe inspection to monitor the interior of your plumbing system.
