There are several devices used to prevent backflow and to ensure that water only travels in the correct direction:
- Reduced Pressure Backflow Preventer – This device prevents backflow by controlling the water pressure and directing the flow.
- Non-Return Valve – When properly fitted, this valve forces water to travel in the correct direction.
The plumbers at Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning have an in depth understanding of each of these devices, which enables us to provide reliable backflow preventer repairs.
What is Backflow?
Backwater or Backflow is the unwanted reversal in the flow of water from a real or possible source of contamination or pollution back to the clean public water supply.
There are 2 types of backflow:
Back Pressure: Occurs when the user system is at a higher pressure than the supply water systems allowing undesirable substances to be “pushed” back into the potable water system.
Back Siphonage: Occurs when negative or reduced pressure exists in the supply piping allowing undesirable substances to be “drawn” into the potable water supply.
How Can FL Backflow Be Avoided?
- Reduced Pressure Backflow Preventer. A reduced pressure backwater-backflow preventer system is used to protect Florida water supplies from contamination by controlling the pressure and directing the water flow.
- Non-Return Valve. A non-return valve when properly fitted ensures water flows through a pipe in the correct direction, where pressure conditions may otherwise cause reversed flow.
Why Do FL Backwater-Backflow Preventer Systems Have To Be Tested?
Florida mechanical Backwater-Backflow Preventers , just like many plumbing systems, have an internal seal, springs and many moving parts. Like any tool of this nature, fouling, wearing out and breaks are possible.
Not only are these systems subject to damage but they can also be bypassed. This is why it is necessary to ensure they are functioning properly. Sometimes a visual check will do, but all mechanical backflow prevention systems in Florida have to be tested with specialized, properly calibrated equipment. Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning has the backflow testing equipment and backflow prevention expertise to handle your Florida backflow issues.
