The Benefits of Backflow Prevention in Texas
You probably know how your home’s water supply gets treatment from a water treatment plant to remove contaminants. However, backflow is something that can add more contaminants after water gets treatment. When backflow contaminates the water supply, bad stuff gets into the water we use for drinking, cooking, and cleaning. That’s why it so important to get your home backflow prevention in Texas. By doing this, you’ll keep your water supply from being contaminated by backflow.
What exactly causes backflow?
Backflow contamination is what happens when used water gets into your clean water supply. This usually happens when there’s an abnormal water pressure differential. For example, if a fire hydrant gets opened up, this can drop water pressure. When this happens, water starts flowing backward into public lines. If you’re using pesticides on your lawn, water near your sprinklers can get sucked into the water line and contaminate the public drinking supply. This is where a backflow prevention system comes in handy.

From there, we can recommend you a backflow preventer to keep your water supply safe. Backflow prevention systems work by only letting water flow one direction.
