Homeowners will want to remain diligent about backflow testing in San Antonio. Your home’s backflow prevention assembly makes sure that all of the water that comes out of your faucet is uncontaminated and free of pollutants. Something else to think about is that it’s always easier and less expensive for you to repair your backflow prevention assembly than it is for you to completely replace it. When you are in need of these plumbing services, Aramendia San Antonio can help.
How Often Should You Test Your Backflow?
Master plumbers recommend that you have backflow testing done when your prevention assembly is first installed, after you have it replaced or repaired and every year after that.
What Causes Backflow?
Backflow is caused by certain hydraulic conditions that are out of the ordinary that can occur inside of a water system. Those conditions can lead to contaminated water finding its way into your home and into your sinks, bathtubs, showers and your yard. It’s important to note that while pollutants can alter the color and smell of your water, it’s contaminants that are the actual threat to your health.
Just because your water looks fine doesn’t mean that it is fine. You might have contaminants and pollutants swimming in your water that you don’t even know about until you become ill. Schedule backflow testing for your home with Aramendia San Antonio to keep yourself and your family safe.
