What Causes Backflow?
Backflow is caused by a drastic shift in pressure within your water lines, like when a water main breaks or a pipe bursts. When this happens, the water system starts drawing water wherever it can. So say a pipe bursts while a sprinkler system is watering a freshly treated lawn in your neighborhood, and you're filling a bathtub. That tub could become filled with polluted water from the neighboring lawn.
This is what the backflow device prevents. It ensures that the water filling the broken pipes does not flow back into the supply used for the homes or businesses attached.
At Presto Plumbing, we have experienced technicians on staff to help fix these kinds of issues and detect them before they even happen. So give us a call to have your backflow tested at 770-686-3500.
What Are The Signs Of Backflow Issues?
When you turn on a faucet, you expect the water coming out to be constant, clear, and odorless. It will be pretty evident and shocking when your backflow is not working correctly.
The classic signs of a faulty backflow are:
>Discolored water (brown, yellow, or even pink.)
>A foul odor coming from your water and faucets
>Rust particles or sediment in the water
>The water from your taps tastes bad
>Your water takes a long time to drain
If your water displays any of these signs, stop using it immediately and call a professional at Presto Plumbing. We will run the necessary tests to determine what needs to be done to fix your backflow unit.

What Is a Backflow Preventer?
A backflow preventer, or a cross connection device, is a device that only allows water to flow in one direction. Each building with running water draws its water from a shared source through a system of interconnected pipes. These pipes may run water in a neighborhood through houses, plumbing, yard irrigation, and even home sprinkler systems. In a business or commercial area, it will be the source for the fire sprinkler systems, public bathrooms, and drinking fountains. The water is drawn to the individual sources and goes through a backflow.
When a backflow preventer works appropriately, clean water is supplied to faucets and fountains. But when it's not working correctly, or something has gone wrong further down the line, contaminated wastewater can get directed towards those faucets and fountains, causing severe hazards for residents and businesses.
That's why keeping a professional eye on your backflow systems is essential. Presto Plumbing can service your backflow, whether in a business or in your home. Contact us today to set up your next appointment!
How Often Should Presto Plumbing Test My Backflow Preventer?
The Georgia Water Authority mandates that residents and businesses get their backflow system tested yearly. If not, a problem could go undetected and contaminated water could get into your irrigation systems, faucets, and drinking water. Luckily Presto Plumbing has trusted technicians ready to test your backflow 7 am - 8 pm. Worried there's an issue with your backflow system? Give us a call today! 770-686-3500
Will My Water Be Shut Off While Presto Plumbing is Testing My Backflow?
Most likely, yes. Most backflow systems require a technician to turn off the water for a short time. But don't worry, it won't take very long. Most tests only take a few hours, depending on what your backflow system requires. Need your backflow system services? Give us a call today! 770-686-3500
