EW Plumbing provides full backflow testing and prevention services for commercial or industrial clients. Backflow represents one of the least palatable problems that can occur with plumbing. Your plumbing should always flow in one direction: from your business into the sewer. Backflow occurs when outside factors cause this process to reverse. Instead of flowing out from your structure, wastewater flows in. This can present a serious health concern and requires immediate attention from a professional plumber.
Our specialists will quickly determine whether backflow has occurred. From there, we can install a special device that prevents the problem in the future. Backflow happens because of serious drops in municipal water pressure. When this occurs, tainted water will flow backwards into your plumbing. To prevent this, schedule backflow testing in the Kansas City Metro Area with a simple to EW Plumbing at 913-768-8500.
Signs You Need Backflow Testing
Obviously, backflow can make you and your employees extremely sick. The water can also contaminate and damage machinery that relies upon water for proper operation. To determine whether you need backflow testing or prevention, look for the following signs.
Time: If more than a year has passed since your last backflow test, schedule service with our professional team immediately. Backflow is not always obvious, and often involves trace pollutants that can still make you sick. If you already have a backflow prevention assembly, you still need annual inspections to ensure its proper operation.
Leaking Assembly: If you already have a backflow assembly installed, check it every once in awhile to assure its functionality. If anything seems odd, call for a professional inspection. If your assembly has started to leak or discharge fluid, then you certainly need repair or replacement.
Discolored Water: If the water from your taps comes out discolored in any way, you need to schedule service. Discolored water indicates heavy pollution from wastewater, a dangerous situation that needs an immediate resolution. In no circumstances should you consume or use this water, as it can cause illness and, in some cases, death.
To solve the problem of backflow, our technicians can install a backflow prevention assembly that blocks the reverse flow of water into your home. These assemblies will render your home safe, but require the annual attention of a certified plumber to ensure proper functionality.
