This is for All Properties

Backflow Services in Wake County, Apex, Cary, Morrisville, and GarnerWhile many people think that these backflow regulators and equipment are only for commercial properties or apartment buildings, the truth is that they are often required for any and all properties that are connected to the municipal water system. Many times a burst water main is the culprit for potential contamination of clean water supplies, but as mentioned even hoses should have backflow preventers so that the change of water pressure doesn’t suck in dirty water through the hose and potentially contaminate fresh water.

Some potential backflow sites include bathroom faucets where they are leaking and this can cause backflow into the cold water line; a clogged drain or sewer can do this, especially in older homes with pipe traps; damaged fitting or outdated/old fittings can also lead to backflow issues. Working with our team we can diagnose the issue and create a plan to fix it.

Air Gaps are an Ideal Solution

In many cases air gaps are the ideal solution as this allows for potable water to flow in a single direction to the waste side of fixtures. We see these in toilets, sinks, and tubs with P-traps installed near the drains of these fixtures. These air gaps are like one-way valves, and they also prevent gases from flowing back from the waste water side to the potable water side. And because these are easy to maintain and don’t require annual inspections, they are a great solution, but just one solution as other scenarios exist as well.

Backflow is a serious issue that can contaminate thousands of gallons of fresh water if it isn’t dealt with properly in Wake County, Apex, Cary, Morrisville, Garner, and the surrounding areas.
