Backflow Prevention Device - Plumbing Services in Brooksville and St. Petersburg, FL

Backflow Prevention

Available only from our Brooksville office, backflow prevention is important to keep the water in your home clean. If you have a backflow problem, call our backflow certified specialists right away.

To eliminate backflow or cross contamination a back flow prevention device is installed in your water system. Backflow happens as a result of cross connection in your water system.

A backflow prevention device is used to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow. In water supply systems, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower, or other fixture. Water pressure may fail or be reduced when a water main bursts, pipes freeze, or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system (for example, when several fire hydrants are opened). Reduced pressure in the pipe may allow contaminated water from the soil, from storage, or from other sources to be drawn up into the system.
Cross Connection causes:
  • Filling your swimming pool with a water hose
  • Filling a pets water bucket with a water hose connected to the home water system
  • Flushing debris from a drain with a water hose
  • Connecting your garden hose to a plant fertilizer or bug spray unit
