Sewer Backflow Preventer
Sewer Backflow Preventer in Washington, DC
What is Backflow?
Your plumbing system is designed to keep your water supply completely separate from your wastewater, but when they come into contact, the result is what’s called “backflow.” As you might already know, backflow is not a good thing. Its very name suggests a dysfunctional process, and that’s precisely what the movement of wastewater back into your water supply is.
Cross-contamination can lead to a variety of issues, including the loss of potable water throughout the home, but also potential illness and health issues if the problem is not detected. The best way to protect your plumbing system is with a sewer backflow preventer.

How Does a Sewer Backflow Preventer Work?
A sewer backflow preventer separates potable and wastewater systems. The most common type is an actual physical separation known as an air gap. But there are various other types of sewer backflow preventers, such as double–check valve assemblies that use two independent valves to control the flow of water. By preventing wastewater flowing the opposite direction — whether due to backpressure or backsiphonage — these devices ensure that your plumbing system remains safe.
