Backflow is the term used in plumbing when an unwanted flow of water pushes in the opposite direction. When water supplies become contaminated with foul water, it can pose a severe health threat to those occupying the home or business. If you think you may have this problem in your Lexington home or business, it is important that you have it checked immediately. Dr Rooter of Lexington can run a series of backflow tests to determine if your water supply is contaminated.
When pressure in a tank is lower than the water system’s pressure, backflow will occur. This will cause contaminated water into your water supply. Backpressure can also result in backflow. This is when there is higher water pressure in a home or building that forces contaminated water into the public water system. This can potentially allow contaminants into the drinking water system. By moving forward with a backflow preventer installation in Lexington, you can help prevent water contamination from in your water supply systems. These devices maintain the right pressure in order to enable water to flow to different parts of your home.
