Why is Backflow Dangerous?

Backflow occurs when there is a disruption in the flow of water in your main water line and the direction of water reverses. This can happen during a power outage or any other instance where the water pressure drops below a certain level. Backflow is dangerous for many reasons, but mostly because when the water direction changes, it can cause contaminated and dirty water to flow into your home. In many cases, contaminated water won’t actually look or smell any different than your normal water, which puts your entire family at risk. Backflow testing services from licensed and qualified backflow testing companies are the best way to keep your family safe from this serious issue.

How Does Backflow Certification Work?

Many homes use a backflow device to prevent backflow water from entering their homes. Most devices consist of a flap that is installed over the main water line. When the water is flowing in the correct direction, the flap remains open, letting the water pass. But when the water changes direction, the flap closes, sealing the waterline and protecting your home from backflow. Backflow testing Calgary is important because, sometimes, the device may fail.

If you suspect backflow in your home, the best thing to do is to call the professionals at ProStar Plumbing & Heating for professional backflow services. We will inspect your backflow device to make sure it worked properly and then reset it so it will protect you against backflow in the future. If the device failed and contaminated water entered your home, we will flush your plumbing system until it is clean and safe again.
