A backflow prevention device can come in a variety of forms. For residential properties, it is often a one-way valve that is installed in the home’s sewer line. As long as proper pressure is maintained, the valve remains open to allow water to flow through it. If there is a change in pressure, however, the valve shuts and prevents sewage from contaminating the home.

Installing this device requires access to the sewer line, as well as specialized training. If it is improperly installed, the device could not only fail to protect against backflow, but it could also impede the proper flow of water. If you want to properly protect your home against backflow, you should trust us to handle your device installation for you.
Backflow prevention devices also need to be checked annually. Waste can build up on the valve over time, causing it to become stuck in the open or closed position. Annual maintenance ensures that the device is working properly and is free of obstruction.
