Signs You Need Backflow Testing?
Backflow devices are a part of your plumbing system that goes pretty much unnoticed unless there is an issue. A backflow device, also known as a reduced pressure zone or RPZ are installed onto a water pipe that only allows water to flow in one direction.
Usually, an issue occurs when your water starts to go in the opposite direction due to too much pressure in your pipes, or too little. An example of this that we see in Denver sometimes is when a water main breaks and causes less water supply for the pressure of the plumbing system. Not only can this affect your own plumbing system but the water flowing back can also contaminate the public water system.
How do I know if I need a backflow device installed:
- It is a requirement that all irrigation systems have a backflow device installed
