There are many plumbing issues that are easy to spot. After all, it’s hard to ignore a puddle in your basement or a sink that won’t drain! But for every problem that is easy to see, there are others that aren’t quite so easy to find. Here at South End Plumbing, we have over 25 years of experience that can help us search out and repair all the seen and unseen problems in your Cornelius, NC home or business’ plumbing.
Just one of these hidden problems that may be affecting you right now is that of backflow. Like the name implies, backflow occurs when the flow of water is reversed back up instead of down the drain. Some backflow issues are obvious. For example, an overflowing toilet can be caused by backflow, as well as a clog in the drain. These flow reversals can be not only costly to repair if left untreated, but also hazardous to your health. Because waste water flows outwards, backflow water making its way back into your drinking water can bring with it germs, contaminants, and other materials that can make you or your family ill.
Our expert team here at South End Plumbing offers a variety of backflow services in order to meet the needs of your home or business. We can test your water for backflow issues and ensure it is safe. This can bring great peace of mind to those who might have a new baby or are otherwise immune-compromised. If a problem is found, we have the tools and skills to quickly repair it, leaving your space better than new. We also offer installation of backflow preventers, to ensure this type of problem won’t happen again.
