What is a backflow preventer?
The backflow preventer on your property’s water line keeps drinking water from passing back down the line and contaminating your water source. Whether that source is city water or a well, it’s absolutely essential to prevent drawn water from reentering the place where it originated.
Backflow prevention devices used in homes and other buildings contain many different parts. These complex devices install on your main water line, and they keep the pressure on the line going one way only: toward your home. Installing a backflow prevention device on your own isn’t the hardest plumbing task out there, but simple mistakes could still end up being costly.
Why is backflow prevention important?
The backflow preventer on your water line doesn’t just keep you safe. It might protect your whole neighborhood as well. Failing to protect a common water source could raise the ire of your community, and in any case, following basic plumbing standards is the best way to keep your house, condo, or apartment building safe and leak-free.
Faulty backflow prevention can result in property damage, and it can also result in fines if backflow prevention is part of your building code. Most importantly, however, failing to take care of proper backflow prevention on your property creates needless health risks.
Backflow prevention technology has come a long way in recent decades, and relying on professional assistance is the best way to take advantage of these innovations. Call Lehigh Valley Plumbing today for a free estimate.
What is a vacuum breaker?
Vacuum breakers are similar in principle to backflow preventers, but they are usually attached to faucets instead of to water lines themselves. Like backflow prevention devices, vacuum breakers create a vacuum on the side of the water line that goes into your home. This simple technology keeps unwanted water from flowing back the way it came, but you’ll need more than a simple vacuum breaker to keep your entire water supply safe.
Called in because of a busted water line in our front yard. Every employee from the office staff to all the technicians were absolutely terrific. Professional, polite, patient with the many questions and delays.
Steve just left after fixing my clogged kitchen sink. We called this morning and he was here at the time expected. He explained everything in detail, made sure I understood. He gave an estimate before he began. Brought shoe covers, a floor cover, kept everything clean. When he was finished, he asked if I had any questions or needed anything else. This is all 4 days before Christmas! Totally happy!!
Recently our service man was Tyler, he was amazing. He was professional and thorough. He explained everything start to finish and very clearly laid out our options.
