Backflow Prevention

Backflow Prevention

T.Webber Plumbing, Heating, Air & Electric is committed to delivering safe and contaminant-free water, and the best way to do that is through backflow prevention.

What is Backflow?

Backflow is water that doesn’t flow in the right direction and occurs when hydraulic conditions within any water system stray from the norm. When this happens, it’s possible for your water to become contaminated. Our technicians here at T.Webber are specially trained to ensure that clean, drinkable water always enters your home.

How Does Backflow Happen?

  1. Back pressure: When the pressure in your pipes exceeds the pressure in the potable system that provides the make-up water, the potable water will reverse its direction of flow. That flow reversal allows for potential contaminants to enter the drinking water system.
  2. Back siphonage: When a water main breaks, for example, the water pressure in your plumbing can drop suddenly. This causes back siphonage which can also result in the water reversing its flow. Water flow reversal can create a suction effect and that brings the contamination to your water.

    "My House is Warm Again!"

    My boilers fan motor stopped working. I called T. Webber in the morning and they had someone out to my address within 2hrs. The tech was very knowledgable and offered me several options. He repaired and replaced what was not working in a few hours. My house is warm again.

    "I'd Absolutely Recommend This Company!"

    I called in a panic when my central air stopped working during a heat wave. The technician was very understanding that I wanted it fixed ASAP and worked to get the part we needed as quickly as he could. As soon as the part arrived and worked into the evening to get it done for us without us having to wait another day, which is so very appreciated. I’d absolutely recommend this company!
