What is Back Flow?
Back flow is essentially the reversed flow of water that is unwanted in the plumbing system. When a plumbing system filters water from the contaminants, these are usually sent for disposal. Back Flow causes the contaminated water to reverse flow back into the plumbing system and contaminate the filtered water as well. This can occur due to drops or sudden raises in water pressure and can cause various issues with your plumbing system and damages your pipes, appliances and fixtures. There are two typical types of back flow:
Back Pressure - When the water pressure rapidly increases forcing water to flow in the opposite direction, and
Back Siphonage - When the water pressure in the system decreases or become negative, allowing contaminants to be sucked into the water supply.
How Bulldog Rooter tests for Back Flow
At Bulldog Rooter, we use state-of-the-art testing and diagnosing equipment to understand your plumbing system thoroughly and to identify areas of possible back flow and contaminant entry points. Equipment such as back flow testers (shown here) are tool kits that we use to identify the types of back flow you have, where in your system it may be occurring, and the current contaminant levels of your water.
Our trained technicians will hook up our back flow tester, diagnose your system and begin the back flow prevention process, as well as mitigate any damage that has already occurred in your system.
