Backflow is a significant issue in many plumbing systems: the phenomenon of wastewater or non-potable water intermingling with potable water in your Boerne, TX plumbing system.

We provide double check backflow installation, RPZ backflow installation, and installation on similar fine products designed to keep the water in your system from cross-contaminating. Our trained technicians are on call and can serve homes and businesses throughout the area. Request an estimate or call us today!

What Is Backflow Prevention?

Backflow usually occurs when the pressure in the pipes changes, and when the pressure drops, non–potable water may flow in the wrong direction. That means it can intermingle with potable water in your Boerne, TX home or business, creating an instant health hazard and possibly creating similar problems in the process.

Backflow prevention devices are designed to stop that. In most cases, they consist of a valve that snaps shut the moment a change in pressure or similar hazardous situation is detected. That keeps the potable water safe and allows the issue to be dealt with without creating a safety hazard. Our trained technicians can examine your plumbing system, determine the spots where backflow is a threat, and install the right kind of backflow prevention device to match your specific needs.

Double Check Backflow Devices Are Effective

In many cases, we recommend double check backflow installation in order to shut backflow down before it starts. It’s a safe and reliable means of handling the issue. It consists of two valves, called check valves, which are installed reasonably close to each other. If one of them becomes stuck or otherwise incapacitated, the other one will snap shut to keep backflow from occurring. Even better, the changes in pressure created when one valve closes can activate the other, allowing for a more reliable seal that prevents even minor leaking.

Double check backflow prevention devices work best in systems where the hazard level is comparatively low, such as sprinkler systems and fire safety sprinklers. And when installed by our team, you can rest assured that they will do the job the first time, every time!

For Serious Concerns, Look into RPZ Backflow Installation

Double check systems are good for most commercial plumbing systems, but if the backflow involves more hazardous implications than most, you should look into RPZ backflow installation. RPZ stands for reduced pressure zone, and the system entails a pair of valves like a double check device. The difference is that there’s a significant air gap, with a pressurized section in between, making it ideal for systems that require consistent pressure throughout the system

We provide RPZ installation for businesses at risk of hazardous backflow, and we can check and repair the system as needed to keep it safe. Call on us today to learn more!
