What Is Backflow Testing and Why Is It Necessary?

The performance of your backflow system degrades over time, mainly due to wear and tear caused by elevated water pressure and poor water quality. Backflow happens when water in the pipes flows in reverse, causing used/gray water to enter the system and contaminate the potable water. It is a significant health risk that impacts not only your home but your neighborhood as well.

Backflow testing evaluates the water pressure in your system and the efficiency of your assembly to ensure that your water supply is clean and safe for daily use. More importantly, testing draws attention to issues within the assembly that needs to be fixed to keep the system running smoothly.

If it has been more than a year since your last test, contact Blake Brothers today to book your backflow testing service! Failure to test your device regularly can make your water system more susceptible to a backflow event, polluting the water supply and endangering the people that use it.

Signs You Needs to Get Backflow Testing Now

Routine testing allows you to check whether or not your assembly continues to do its job. However, backflow prevention devices can still develop problems despite regular inspections.

Schedule a backflow test if your plumbing system exhibits one or more of the following signs:

  1. Leaks. Backflow devices are meant to prevent water from entering your home or workplace. Leaks in your plumbing could suggest that your backflow system is not functioning properly.
  1. Change in water pressure. Backflow could be the reason behind the sudden drop in your water pressure, especially if the pressure shift is accompanied by other symptoms, such as leaks.
  1. Water backflow indoors. This is one of the most telling signs of a backflow problem. If you notice water backflowing into your home, call a specialist asap!
  1. Discolored or contaminated water. Backflow is likely the cause of discolored or unclean water from your faucets. It can introduce impurities into your water supply, causing discoloration and dirtiness.
  1. Strange noises. Backflow can cause water to make gurgling or bubbling noises. If you hear odd noises coming from your pipes, consider getting your system tested.
  1. Frequent clogging. Are you dealing with clogged pipes more often than usual? Backflow could be to blame.  Backflow allows contaminants and dirt to enter your pipes, causing obstructions.
  1. Unusual tastes or odors in your water. Have you noticed a weird taste or smell in your water?  Backflow can introduce impurities into your water supply, resulting in strange tastes and odors.

  2. Outdated system. Backflow systems tend to lose their effectiveness with time. If your system is more than ten years old, have it inspected by a professional more frequently.
