Cape Coral Backflow Prevention Services
Protect the Safety of Your Water Supply
Backflow in your plumbing system occurs when unusual circumstances, such as a break in the main line, cause a large drain of water from your home’s municipal water supply. This sudden drop in water pressure causes the used water, which is normally carried away from your home, to flow back into your home’s water supply.
Pollutants that can be carried into your water supply due to backflow may include:
- Industrial fluids
- Pool chemicals
- Used water
Backflow is a hazardous problem. To protect the water supply of your home or business, you need to request the help of professional plumbers.
Gator Drain and Plumbing is specially certified in backflow installation in Cape Coral. Call (239) 449-9469 today for qualified help to guard against backflow.
Backflow Preventer Installation Services
The most sure-fire method of preventing backflow is to install certain devices in your pipes that will keep your used water away from your home. For example, the full-service Cape Coral backflow installation technicians at Gator Drain and Plumbing can install a hose bib in individual faucets, which prevent backflow in one specific outlet. Or we can install a pressure-type vacuum breaker, which will measure water pressure in your supply line and automatically close a check valve to prevent backflow when the water pressure decreases suddenly. Installation of devices such as these can protect both residential and commercial water main lines.
Does My Home Need a Backflow Preventer
Backflow preventers are often needed in the following situations:
- For older homes: If your home has outdoor faucets that have never been inspected or serviced by a plumber, they probably need to have backflow prevention installed.
- For sprinkler systems: To keep your drinking water safe, sprinkler systems should have a professional inspection to ensure backflow prevention is installed correctly.
- For private wells: Local ordinances usually require backflow prevention for a well even if it is not connected to drinking water.
Backflow Preventer Inspection & Testing
At Gator Drain and Plumbing, our professional Cape Coral plumbers can conduct backflow inspections in your water lines to test for cross-contamination. If they find areas where backflow is occurring or even has the potential to occur, they can install backflow-prevention devices in these areas. Whether protecting the residents in your home or caring for the safety of your customers, it is important to schedule annual backflow testing with a professional plumbing company.
