Backflow Testing Services in Jacksonville
Backflow is a severe plumbing issue that can contaminate your house’s drinking water supply and trigger illness. While blockages stop the flow of wastewater downpipes, backflow moves the wastewater into your freshwater supply because of a pressure surplus on the sewer side or a fall in pressure on your freshwater side. Regular backflow testing, and the use of backflow prevention devices, can prevent this dangerous issue from occurring. David Gray Plumbing has the tools and expertise to prevent backflow from happening on your property and treat it if it has transpired.

What Causes Backflow to Occur in Your System?
Pressure issues in your plumbing system can cause the normal distribution of water to fail, reversing its regular forward flow. A common reason for pressure changes in your water supply is a break in a water main from your municipal system or if a large amount of water is being used for firefighting purposes in your area. These pressure changes lead to a backward siphoning, causing water to become contaminated and lose its purity. Back siphonage most often results from pressure in a tank or water trough becoming lower than the water system's pressure. Unfortunately, backflow often doesn’t have telltale signs, which is why regular testing is so crucial.
Why Is Backflow Testing Necessary?
Backflow testing ensures that your irrigation, fire sprinkler, and building water supply sources are not compromised and are up to code. A contaminated water supply source can expose your household to dangerous drinking water that can lead to illness. Chemicals, pesticides, organic compounds, microorganisms from sewer water and human waste, and metals are some of the contaminations you're exposed to by backflow.
