Do You Need a Backflow Preventer?
A backflow preventer is almost always installed at a cross-connection to prevent contamination of the drinking water source. It is used to protect your clean water from the contamination that occurs from backflow. Water is typically maintained at a significant pressure to allow free, consistent flow from all fixtures in your building. At times, this constant pressure may be reduced when a water main bursts, pipes freeze, or there is an unexpectedly high demand on the water system. When this change in pressure occurs, your pipe may allow contaminated water from the ground or other unsanitary sources to be drawn up into the system.
To avoid this inconvenient water issue, we invite you to work with Water Doctor’s licensed Master Plumbers and backflow technicians. When it comes to your water supply, you can rely on our team of experts who have had professional training and certification in backflow prevention throughout Maryland—including Annapolis, Gaithersburg, Bethesda, and the surrounding areas.
Backflow preventers are most commonly required with:
