Backflow Preventers San Diego

Municipalities have been aggressively enforcing the Uniform Plumbing Code that will eventually require all properties to have in place an adequate backflow preventer to eliminate accidental water supply contamination. Bill Howe Plumbing will install all types of these devices including optional safety cages. Bill Howe Plumbing is also experienced and trained to repair and certify your backflow device as per the water district regulation.

The Seriousness of Backflow

The term backflow means any unwanted flow of used or non-potable water or substance from any domestic, industrial or institutional piping system into the pure, potable water distribution system. The direction of flow under these conditions is in the reverse direction from that intended by the system and normally assumed by the owner of the system.

A reversal of flow in a distribution main–or in the customer’s system–can be created by any change of system pressure wherein the pressure at the supply point becomes lower than the pressure at the point of use. When this happens in an unprotected situation the water at the point of use will be siphoned back into the system; thus, potentially polluting or contaminating the remainder of the customer’s system. It is also possible that the contaminated or polluted water could continue to backflow into the public distribution system.

Cross-connection

The point at which it is possible for a non-potable substance to come in contact with the potable drinking water system is called a cross-connection. To prevent backflow from occurring at the point of a cross-connection a backflow prevention assembly must be installed. However, it is important the backflow prevention assembly match the particular hydraulic conditions at that location and is suitable to protect against the degree of hazard present. The particular type of backflow preventer appropriate for specific needs will be discussed later. First, it is necessary to understand some basic hydraulics, which govern the principles of backflow and cross-connection control.

What Andy B. via Lennox Pro says about us

We have been using Bill Howe Plumbing’s service for more than 25 years and have been pleasantly surprised at how consistently they perform an excellent service call. We use them for our home and our rental properties, and their dispatchers and technicians have always been the best at problem solving; our tenants have told us how great the service is as well. When we needed air conditioning service, naturally we called Bill Howe first. There’s no reason to call anyone else. I know the job will be done right the first time, with fair pricing and professional service.
