A backflow preventer is a device that’s installed on your business or home’s water pipes that allows water to flow in one direction but never in the opposite direction. Its sole job is to prevent drinking water from being contaminated due to backflow.
Roto-Tech Plumbing Contractors is Southwest Florida’s #1 choice for Backflow Prevention Devices. We pride ourselves in only using the latest technology and top quality equipment to inspect, install and replace your backflow prevention devices in Medical or Commercial Buildings. We have trained, certified and experienced backflow device testers on staff who can perform a backflow device test to ensure it is working correctly. Our team will complete the necessary paperwork and file it appropriately with the local water authority to ensure you and your business are in total compliance with the regulations.
When water enters your home from the main water supply line, it should only ever flow in one direction: into your home. But sometimes, due to pressure changes in the pipes, that water can actually flow backwards and seep back into the main water supply line.
For example, backflow can happen when there’s a break in the main water line or when a fire hydrant is opened for use. Because pressure is lost during these events, water is no longer being pushed forward into your home and will flow backwards into the city water lines.
And when this happens, backflow can contaminate the public drinking supply with:
- Human waste
- Chlorine from pools/spas
- Soap from sinks/dishwashers/showers
And that’s where a backflow prevention system comes in handy.
