Backflow Services in Huntersville – Plumbing runs in two directions – into your home and out of your home. Pipes bring fresh water in, and drains take waste water out. Or at least that is the way it is supposed to work. Sometimes, however, a build-up of gases or materials can cause your water system to run in a backward direction. This is called backflow. At South End Plumbing, we have a variety of backflow services to prevent, detect, and resolve backflow problems.
Sometimes backflow happens in such a way as to be quickly identified. You end up with a sewage backup, or a drain gurgles water back into a sink, tub, shower or toilet. Other times, it happens in a more hazardous way, such as in a cross-connection situation in which contaminants end up in your good water supply and you may not even realize it. Oddly enough, most plumbing systems installed when a home is built in Huntersville, NC do not have a backflow prevention device to safeguard against this potentially deadly occurrence. Installing such a device is one of our more common backflow services.
If you are concerned about the quality of your water and also want to have the peace of mind that your plumbing system is free of backflow, we welcome you to give us a call. We can perform a backflow test and then go over the results and our recommendations. We provide backflow services for both residential and commercial properties in Huntersville. We also provide 24/7 emergency backflow services if you are experiencing a serious backflow situation, and we do not charge more even if you need us after regular business hours.
