At Lighten Up Electric and Plumbing, it is our mission to ensure all our customers have access to safe, high quality and contaminant-free water. One of the most important parts of this mission is backflow prevention. When a water line connects with pipes containing a non-potable substance, we call this ‘cross-connection.’ Backflow is when your water becomes contaminated by flowing through a cross-connection from a non-potable source, such as a sprinkler or HVAC system, into the drinking water line. This can happen through a process known as backflow.
Backflow is water flowing in the opposite direction than it is meant to. When hydraulic conditions within any water system deviate from normal, the direction of water flow can be reversed. This creates a backflow condition and the potential for contaminated water entering the potable water distribution system. Our backflow prevention technicians are specially trained to keep clean, drinkable water flowing directly to your home.
Our backflow prevention specialists adhere to a strict checklist to make sure you won’t encounter the headache of a backflow problem. This includes:
