How do backflow issues happen?

Every plumbing system ranging from city-wide sewer lines, to a kitchen faucet, have been designed to allow water to move in a single direction. These systems are extremely complex which means that there are multiple connections and pipes, which could lead to a reversal of the water direction; also referred to as backflow.

As a result of this vulnerability, the use of backflow prevention devices is critical to combat this problem. At Rayne Plumbing & Sewer Service, Inc. our technicians are highly skilled and trained to provide the repair and replacement of these devices.

What are some common prevention devices?

There are a variety of systems available to prevent backflow issues in your homes plumbing. These systems include:

  • Reduced pressure backflow preventer – This is one of the most common options to help prevent backflow issues in your home. This system will immediately drip excess water when it detects backflow in order to change the pressure and prevent cross-contamination.

  • Double check valve systems – ┬áThese devices have two spring-loaded check valves which periodically self-test in order to stay in perfect working condition. At the first sign of backflow issues they will function to protect your home from contamination.

  • Pressure vacuum breakers – Pressure vacuum breakers (PVB) detect any backflow issues and immediately vent contaminated water away from the potable water lines. These smaller units can easily be installed on your lines to protect your home.

Our plumbing professionals can provide you with specialized San Jose backflow installation services, to equip your home with one of the above systems. By having these systems installed you can ensure that your potable water is clean at all times.
